Tales from Shakespeare
by Charles Lamb
'Tales from Shakespeare' Summary
The book is divided into two volumes, with Charles taking charge of Shakespeare's tragedies while Mary chose to work on the comedies and some of the historical plays. The preface was a joint effort and the book has remained a classic in its own right, delighting generations of children and spurring them on to read the original works of Shakespeare. Tales from Shakespeare was at one time, prescribed reading not just for children, but also for young women who were being groomed for marriage as a fundamental part of their literary education.
An eclectic, catholic even, collection from the exquisitely excellent tale-telling of Mr. Edgar Allan Poe. Hilarious and terrifying. Need I say more?
