Shakespeare for Children

Charles Lamb

More Information

Description:

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"
