Tales from Shakespeare

Although first published in 1807 with the intent of being "an introduction to the study of Shakespeare," these prose retellings by Charles and Mary Lamb have stood the test of time. Because the plays are told in story format, they can be somewhat easier for children to understand than the play format, and give a good basis for understanding the complete play when read later. These unabridged editions feature twenty retellings of Shakespeare's plays, including The Tempest, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It, The Merchant of Venice, King Lear, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Othello and more.
