Product description

Alas! Poor Shakespeare! If you don’t know him well, grab this quick chance to fix that glaring hole in your cultural education. Twenty of Shakespeare’s classic plays retold in brilliant short stories. Or to put it another way, around 60 hours of theatre time in one shortish book. All the drama. No numb bum. All the favourites are in here: Hamlet, The Tempest, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet. All the crucial points you need to remember for your English essays are here too. What we like best of all is that, though they’re short and simple, these stories keep the feel and power of the real thing. That’s why they’re classics in their own right.

  • Twenty essential Shakespeare plays retold as short stories
  • Much-loved classic retellings by Charles and Mary Lamb
  • Introduced by theatre icon Dame Judi Dench
  • A perfect support for the English curriculum
