Twelve Shakespeare plays presented afresh by Leon Garfield in narrative form. These are not simple retellings, but more like a refashioning of the dramas as stories, which remain true to the essential spirit of the original versions. The author has captured all the richness of character, plot, mood and setting in Shakespeare's works. It is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for the young.
All the richness of Shakespeare is distilled in this brilliant re fashioning of twelve of his best-known plays. Leon Garfield brings the plots and the finely-wrought dramas to life for those who are new to the Shakespeare texts. His writing matches the original in power and is. in turn, superbly reinforced by Michael Foreman's haunting illustrations.
