    How is this book unique?Font adjustments & biography includedUnabridged (100% Original content)Formatted for e-readerIllustratedAbout Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare by E. Nesbit & William ShakespeareBeautiful Stories from Shakespeare includes the writings of Shakespeare who have been justly termed "the richest, the purest, the fairest, that genius uninspired ever penned." Shakespeare instructed by delighting. His plays alone (leaving mere science out of the question), contain more actual wisdom than the whole body of English learning. He is the teacher of all good-- pity, generosity, true courage, love. His bright wit is cut out "into little stars." His solid masses of knowledge are meted out in morsels and proverbs, and thus distributed, there is scarcely a corner of the English-speaking world to-day which he does not illuminate, or a cottage which he does not enrich. His bounty is like the sea, which, though often unacknowledged, is everywhere felt. As his friend, Ben Jonson, wrote of him, "He was not of an age but for all time." In this book Edith Nesbit has retold twenty of the best-loved and most beautiful stories from Shakespeare. The following plays are retold:A Midsummer Night’s DreamThe TempestAs You Like ItThe Winter’s TaleKing LearTwelfth NightMuch Ado About NothingRomeo and JulietPericlesHamletCymbelineMacbethThe Comedy of ErrorsThe Merchant of VeniceTimon of AthensOthelloThe Taming of the ShrewMeasure For MeasureTwo Gentlemen of VeronaAll’s Well That Ends Well
