A classic retelling of Shakespeare’s plays intended to be more accessible to children. Mary Lamb was responsible for the retelling of the comedies, while Charles Lamb retold the tragedies. Both contributed to the preface. The book includes such famous plays as Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Othello, King Lear, The Tempest, As You Like It, The Merchant of Venice, and many more.
First published in 1807, this edition is derived from the book published in 1915 (20 color illustrations by Norman Price) and 1922 (cover and black & white illustrations by Elizabeth Elliot). As always, this edition is complete and unabridged.
