    How is this book unique? Font adjustments & biography included Unabridged (100% Original content) Illustrated About 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 Dream The Tempest As You Like It The Winter’s Tale King Lear Twelfth Night Much Ado About Nothing Romeo and Juliet Pericles Hamlet Cymbeline Macbeth The Comedy of Errors The Merchant of Venice Timon of Athens Othello The Taming of the Shrew Measure For Measure Two Gentlemen of Verona All’s Well That Ends Well
