About the Book

Charles and Mary Lamb, two English siblings, published the children's book Tales from Shakespeare in 1807. The comedies were told by Mary Lamb and the tragedies by Charles. All of the Roman plays were excluded, and the historical stories they chose to recount were altered.
It's claimed that dialogue has been used far too frequently for young readers who aren't used to reading or writing in a theatrical style. However, this flaw, if it exists, was brought about by a sincere desire to utilize as many of Shakespeare's original words as possible. Too often, the need of converting many of his brilliant phrases into less expressive ones undermines the beauty of his language.
The topics of the majority of these tales made it quite difficult to make them easy to read for very young children. Giving the history of men and women in ways that a very young mind could understand was not an easy task. The courteous aid of young gentlemen is needed to explain to their sisters those sections of these Tales that are most difficult for them to grasp, as opposed to suggesting them for the reading of young gentlemen who can read them so much better in the originals.

About Author

Charles Lamb And Mary Lamb

Charles Lamb was an English writer, poet, and antiquarian who lived from 10 February 1775 to 27 December 1834. The children's book Tales from Shakespeare, which he co-wrote with his sister Mary Lamb, and his Essays of Elia are among his best-known works. Authors including Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Robert Southey, William Wordsworth, and William Hazlitt were acquainted with Lamb. Charles Lamb, who had an older brother and sister but no younger siblings, was the son of John Lamb (c. 1725–1799) and Elizabeth (died 1796), née Field. His paternal aunt Hetty, who appears to have had a special affection for him, also took care of him. Mary Lamb English author Mary Anne Lamb lived from 3 December 1764 to 20 May 1847. Her parents lived above Samuel Salt's house in the Inner Temple and were employed by Salt. Because of her father's stories of his interactions with a nearby resident named Samuel Johnson, Mary developed an interest in literature and authors. Elizabeth Lamb first experienced severe anguish in the early 1790s, most likely as a result of arthritis. She eventually had crippling pain that rendered her immobile. By the year 1796, Elizabeth was fully dependent on Mary.
