Tales from Shakespeare

By Charles Lamb & Mary Lamb
Narrated by Wanda McCaddon / 9 hours 18 minutes

This retelling in prose of twenty of Shakespeare's thirty-seven plays was originally published just for children. Keeping Shakespeare's own words whenever possible but making the plots and language easily understandable, this very listenable collection has entertained and informed generations of adults as well. With such classic stories as A Midsummer Night's Dream, Much Ado about Nothing, Hamlet, and more, Shakespeare's most memorable characters come to life anew as magicians and fairies, fools and kings weave their magic, mischief, and madness. Contents include: The Tempest A Midsummer Night's Dream The Winter's Tale Much Ado about Nothing As You Like It The Two Gentlemen of Verona The Merchant of Venice Cybeline King Lear Macbeth All's Well That Ends Well The Taming of the Shrew The Comedy of Errors Measure for Measure Twelfth Night Timon of Athens Romeo and Juliet Hamlet Othello Pericles, Prince of Tyre
