Tales from Shakespeare

Charles Lamb, Mary Lamb

Illustrations by Arthur Rackham and Artur Scheiner

«Tales from Shakespeare» also known as «All the Tales from Shakespeare» is an English children’s book written by Charles Lamb with his sister Mary Lamb in 1807. The 2015 ebook edition from Animedia Company contains illustrations by Arthur Rackham and Artur Scheiner.

The book reduced the archaic English and complicated storyline of Shakespeare to a simple level that children could read and comprehend. Mary Lamb was responsible for the comedies, while Charles wrote the tragedies; they wrote the preface between them. Next to his essays, this book is his best-known work; yet its success is attributable more to Mary, whose name did not appear on the title page of the first few editions, than to Charles.
