Originally published in 1807 “Tales of Shakespeare” is almost as classic as the plays by the bard himself. Charles Lamb (1775-1834) and his sister Mary Lamb (1764-1874) have taken twenty of Shakespeare’s best plays and retold them in a more modern style—in digestible prose—aimed at sophisticated teenagers. All character dialogue, however, comes straight from the plays. A great way to become familiar with these masterpieces of literature before tackling the original versions. Highly recommended for everyone who wants a better understanding of Shakespeare’s great works in a readable modern format. * * * * If you aren’t familiar enough with Shakespearean old English to follow along without getting lost, or if you’re taking your kids to see one of his plays, this book is invaluable. A very great way to introduce kids to Shakespeare, and to a love for classic literature. * * * * Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was one of the most famous illustrators of his day and this book showcases twelve full-page, full color paintings, two full-page black-and-white illustrations, and seventeen smaller chapter-head and chapter-ending drawings that demonstrate his clear and gorgeous style. * * * * Includes the plays: The Tempest (Comedy); A Midsummer’s Night Dream (Comedy); The Winter’s Tale (Comedy); Much Ado About Nothing (Comedy); As You Like It (Comedy); The Two Gentlemen of Verona (Comedy); The Merchant of Venice (Comedy); Cymbeline (Comedic Tragedy); King Lear (Tragedy); Macbeth (Tragedy); All’s Well That Ends Well (Comedy); The Taming of the Shrew (Comedy); The Comedy of Errors (Comedy); Measure for Measure (Comedy); Twelfth Night, or What You Will (Comedy); Timon of Athens; (Tragedy) Romeo and Juliet (Tragedy); Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (Tragedy); Othello (Comedic Tragedy); and Pericles, Prince of Tyre (Comedy). * * * * Check our other Children’s, Juvenile, and Adult books at, or Like us on Facebook for our latest releases.
