Tales From Shakespeare

6.99

A great way to enjoy so many of Shakespeare’s timeless plays, Tales From Shakespeare is a retelling of the stories in prose by the famous nineteenth-century brother and sister author duo Charles and Mary Lamb.

Making Shakespeare’s plots and language easily accessible, this collection has enthralled both children and adults ever since it first appeared.

Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies and comedies come to life. Defined by moving drama, vivid action, great wit, or fantastic imagination, each play comes alive with charm and clarity for readers of any age.

Although the very best way to experience Shakespeare's hold on all of us is to act out the plays and speak the lines, this beautiful book is an inspiring introduction to the plays that have come to mean so much to all the world.

WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (1564-1616) was an English playwright poet, and actor, regarded as the world's pre-eminent dramatist, and the greatest writer in the English language. Author of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Hamlet and King Lear, he is often called the “Bard of Avon,” England's national poet.
