William Shakespeare, 1564 - 1616 Although there are many myths and mysteries surrounding William Shakespeare, a great deal is actually known about his life. He was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous merchant and local politician and Mary Arden, who had the wealth to send their oldest son to Stratford Grammar School. At 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, the 27-year-old daughter of a local farmer, and they had their first daughter six months later.

An adaptation of Shakespeare's classic plays based on the original stories of Charles and Mary Lamb offers prose editions of the Bard's great comedies, tragedies, and history plays, all lavishly illustrated in full color.

Subtitled : A Modern Adaptation From The Charles And Mary Lamb Classic
My copy shows the flight of King Lear on the cover, not the same image as above

Contains: The Tempest --- A Midsummer Night's Dream --- Much Ado About Nothing --- As You Like It --- The Merchant of Venice --- King Lear --- Macbeth --- All's Well That Ends Well --- The Taming of the Shrew --- The Comedy of Errors --- Measure for Measure --- Twelfth Night --- Romeo and Juliet --- Hamlet, Prince of Denmark --- Othello

These distillations of Shakespeare's works are very readable, understandable, and read-aloudable. My 14 year old daughter, a very proficient reader, preferred the writing style of this book by the Lambs over the Shakespeare redone by E. Nesbit (language is slightly more archaic) and Geraldine McCaughrean (retellings are quite good, illustrations are rather ghoulish). She preferred the overall style and flow of the Lamb's book. I then read two selections from each author and agreed with her opinion (PS---we don't always agree).

Independent read for grades 5-12. Read aloud to grades 2/3 to 5/6. I highly recommend that children view Shakespeare's works on video at the outset. It helps to get a feel for the cadence of the language used . And, after all, he wrote his works to be performed. Taming of the Shrew with Burton/Taylor is a good place to start. My children enjoyed that one from grades 2-12. Younger children love the "fight" scene where Burton pursues Taylor and forces her to consent to marriage. It is a romp !
