Summary

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"
