Tales from Shakespeare is the classic retelling of Shakespeare’s plays, first published in 1807 by Charles and Mary Lamb. The siblings retell twenty of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, occasionally including the most famous lines but otherwise making the original plays accessible to a wide audience. For over two centuries this classic source has been considered a magnificent introduction to the Bard, allowing younger readers and those new to the plays to understand the plots and characters--as well as providing additional insights to those who have read the full plays.
