Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes


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'


-'The Taming of the Shrew'

-'Twelfth Night; or, What You Will'

-'Romeo and Juliet'

-'Hamlet, Prince of Denmark'
