As children, Charles and Mary Lamb took great delight in exploring their benefactors extensive library; as adults they began writing childrens books together that also appealed to all generations. In "Tales of Shakespeare", they wished to bring their favourite plays to life for children too young to read and appreciate Shakespeares work. This collection of twenty of Shakespeares stories begins with "The Tempest", which explores themes of magic, power and reconciliation, and ends with "Pericles", "Prince of Tyre", an exotic play of love, loss and family ties. Between these two tales are twelve romances and comedies, all written by Mary, and six tragedies, all written by Charles. Each tale is told chronologically and retains much of Shakespeares lyricism, phrasing and rhythm. Together, they form a captivating and accessible introduction to the Bards work.
