Description
Tales from Shakespeare is a collection of some of the Bard’s best known and loved narratives, compiled and edited by Mary and Charles Lamb. It contains his finest plays, re-produced for a younger audience, including ‘The Tempest’, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, ‘King Lear’, ‘Macbeth’, ‘Romeo and Juliet’, ‘Hamlet’, and many more. Mary (1764 – 1847) and Charles Lamb (1775 – 1834) were brother and sister, best known for this fantastic work of children’s literature.This book Tales from Shakespeare contains a series of fantastic black-and-white illustrations – by a master of the craft; Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham’s artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Lambs’s enchanting storytelling.
