By William Shakespeare
Translation by Brighde Mullins
A rousing contemporary translation of Shakespeare’s classic exploration of early English monarchy.
In this modern take on Shakespeare’s King John, Brighde Mullins navigates the political twists and turns of early English monarchy. Mullins’s translation parses Shakespeare’s language carefully, with a focus on its sonic qualities. Her version focuses on the listener, developing the play for the immense pleasure of it—the fortuitous juxtapositions of the fates of these characters.
