Here we have Edith Nesbit's prose retelling of twenty classic Shakespeare stories in a manner clearly readable by children and adults alike. While obviously influenced by Charles and Mary Lamb's 'Tales from Shakespeare', Nesbit's retellings are actually more accessible to the modern reader than those of that justly famous volume, as they were written closer to our own day. The best thing about this book is that it will eventually lead children to discover Shakespeare's plays for themselves! Contents: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM THE TEMPEST AS YOU LIKE IT THE WINTER'S TALE KING LEAR TWELFTH NIGHT MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING ROMEO AND JULIET PERICLES HAMLET CYMBELINE MACBETH THE COMEDY OF ERRORS THE MERCHANT OF VENICE TIMON OF ATHENS OTHELLO THE TAMING OF THE SHREW MEASURE FOR MEASURE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL
