"The Tempest" by William Shakespeare
Please anybody can tell me a good site where I can find a version of "The Tempest" by Shakespeare in a "easy" reading language. (because in the original version is rather difficult to read it because of the Middle English Language). Thanks  a lot in advance!!!

I found this from Sparknotes: http://nfs.sparknotes.com/tempest/page_2.html (at least this link is Act I, Scene 1). It has both the original and a modern translation. The No Fear Shakespeare is pretty good in my experience; I didn īt know they had online for free until I looked. I taught Othello and Macbeth back when my community college had Adult High School in classes rather than in the computer lab, and No Fear helped my students a lot.
