Synopsis

Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare by Mary Lamb, Charles Lamb

Have you ever seen a Shakespeare play and come away without fully understanding it? Or wished you had known the basis of the plot before seeing a play by Shakespeare? Are you studying Shakespeare? Would you like to increase your knowledge of the plays without reading the originals? Then these are probably the recordings for you...Brother and sister team Charles and Mary Lamb originally wrote these stories for children in 1807 based on Shakespeare's most famous plays. Their success was immediate and their appeal quickly extended to an adult readership. This lively and accessible CD version is compelling listening for all the family, and will prove a great resource and inspiration to students, scholars and newcomers to the Bard alike - in short, everybody who enjoys a really good story beautifully told. This collection consists of versions of ten Shakespeare plays including Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, Hamlet and Othello. It is read by Martin Jarvis and Rosalind Ayres; two of Britain's best-loved voice actors.
