Tales from Shakespeare

Deluxe Edition with illustrations by Arthur Rackham

Charles Lamb
Sir Arthur Rackham

In 1807, Charles Lamb and his sister Mary wrote a collection of stories retelling twenty of Shakespeare’s plays for children. While making sure that the pieces were accessible for a younger audience, they took care to stay faithful to the language and vocabulary of the Bard as much as possible. Ranging from the high drama of Romeo and Juliet to the delightful fancy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the humour of As You Like it, this collection of vivid adaptations – here presented in a lavish new edition – has been a much loved children’s classic for more than two hundred years, offering budding readers an accessible route to Shakespeare’s works.
