This is a lovely 19th century retelling of some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays crafted to be told in the common tongue and geared toward the minds of children. While many of Shakespear’s plays include tragedy, death and deceit, the author includes the whole tale both good and bad, dark and light and educates children of some of the most fantastic lines in history. Includes a number of illustrations.
To gain inspiration in the famous words of Shakespeare, the author also includes quotes and how they affect specific aspects of human existence. Nesbit is most widely known for her works in the development of children’s literature and has spawned the dawn of what we now know as Childrens Books.
