The following Tales are meant to be submitted to the young reader as an introduction to the study of Shakespeare, for which purpose his words are used whenever it seemed possible to bring them in; and in whatever has been added to give them the regular form of a connected story, diligent are has been taken to select such words as might least interrupt the effect of the beautiful English tongue in which he wrote: therefore, words introduced into our language since his time have been as far as possible avoided. The following plays are recounted here: The Tempest, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Winter's Tale, Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, The Merchant of Venice, Cymbeline, King Lear, Macbeth, All's Well That Ends Well, The Taming of the Shrew, The Comedy of Errors, Measure for Measure, Twelfth Night; or, What You Will, Timon of Athens, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Othello, Pericles, and Prince of Tyre.

  • Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare: By E. Nesbit & William Shakespeare - Illustrated

    E. Nesbit, William Shakespeare

    eBook (, April 11, 2017)
    How is this book unique?Font adjustments & biography includedUnabridged (100% Original content)IllustratedAbout Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare by E. Nesbit & William Shakespeare"Beautiful 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"
