During her prolific career, popular English children's writer Edith Nesbit wrote or collaborated on over sixty books of fiction for children in her illustrious literary career. In "Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare" first published as "The Children's Shakespeare" in 1897, she turns her attention to a series of interpretations of several of William Shakespeare's best-known comedies and dramas. These retellings of many of Shakespeare's plays are written in a way that can be easily understood by and entertaining to young readers. Rather than being unintelligible and strange to young, modern audiences, Nesbit uses her prodigious storytelling skills to make these iconic stories relatable and interesting. "Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare" includes a short biography of Shakespeare, a list of famous quotations, and the retellings of these famous plays. Included are such classics as "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "The Tempest", "Romeo and Juliet", "Hamlet", "Macbeth", "The Merchant of Venice", and many more. This accessible and engaging introduction to some of the world's greatest literature is an important addition to any young reader's growing book collection. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.
