Synopsis

The Orchard Book of Classic Shakespeare Verse by Gina Pollinger

This selection of verse and poetry from William Shakespeare, the greatest playwright the World has ever known, is filled with wit and wisdom, tenderness and magic, mischief and merriment. An exquisite collection of Shakespeare's writing featuring favourite passages of verse, familiar to many, along with lesser-known pieces, all of which sparkle in the mind and fire the imagination. The poems and verse have been carefully selected to ensure that even younger readers develop a lifelong love of the Bard and his timeless legacy. Includes a foreword by Gina Pollinger, inviting readers to immerse themselves in the delight of Shakespeare's writing. The richness of the words is matched by Emma Chichester Clark's gem-like illustrations, capturing all the life of these enduring poems.
