Product Description The Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb were written to be an 'introduction to the study of Shakespeare', but are much more entertaining than that. All of Shakespeare's best-loved tales, comic and tragic, are retold in a clear and robust style, and their literary quality has made them popular and sought-after ever since their first publication in 1807. This edition contains the delightful pen-and-ink drawings of Arthur Rackham. About the Author Charles Lamb (1775-1834) was a distinguished critic and essayist, as well as the best friend of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and an associate of many other leading literary figures of his day. He is best known for his essays, written under the pen name "Elia," and for his critical studies of British dramatists.
