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"
