Tales from Shakespeare

Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb was written to be an 'introduction to the study of Shakespeare', but are much more entertaining than that. All of Shakespeare's best-loved plays, comic and tragic, are retold in a clear and robust style, and their literary quality has made them popular and sought-after ever since their first publication in 1807. This edition contains the delightful pen-and-ink drawings of Arthur Rackham. Tales include: The Tempest A Midsummer Night’s Dream The Winter’s Tale Much Ado About Nothing As You Like It The Two Gentlemen of Verona The Merchant of Venice Cymbeline King Lear Macbeth All’s Well That Ends Well The Taming of the Shrew The Comedy of Errors Measure for Measure Twelfth Night or What You Will Timon of Athens Romeo and Juliet Hamlet, Prince of Denmark Othello Pericles, Prince of Tyre
