Description
 
Easton Press, Norwalk CT. 1996 Charles Lamb "Tales from Shakespeare" Limited Edition

Charles Lamb was born on February 10, 1775, in London, England. Becoming an essayist, he wrote children's versions of well-known works, including Tales from Shakespeare. Lamb cared for his troubled sister, Mary, after she murdered their mother. He is best known for writing remarkable letters for London Magazine, "Essays of Elia," under the pan name Elia. He died in 1834.

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.
