PROGRAM INFORMATION

More information

Originally written to be an "introduction to the study of Shakespeare," Shakespeare for Children is much more entertaining than that-some of Shakespeare's best-loved plays, comic and tragic, are retold in a clear and robust style. Charles and Mary Lamb introduce children to the magic of Shakespeare with these ten favorite tales. Although simplified, these stories don't underestimate young readers; they keep the complexity, twists of plot, and turns of fate found in the originals. And their literary quality has made them popular and sought-after ever since their first publication in 1807. Included in this edition are:
-"The Tempest"
-"A Midsummer Night's Dream"
-"Much Ado About Nothing"
-"King Lear"
-"Macbeth"
-"The Taming of the Shrew"
-"Twelfth Night; or, What You Will"
-"Romeo and Juliet"
-"Hamlet, Prince of Denmark"
-"Othello"
