These are competent, readable retellings. Though most of her writing is more than a century old, Nesbit still has the power to grip and enchant the reader. The stories tend towards the wordy, but they are nonetheless true to the spirit and atmosphere of the originals. Edith Nesbit, felt passionately that young children should enjoy Shakespeare's great works. She set about to retell his plays in a language that children would not only understand, but delight in.In Children Stories from Shakespeare, E. Nesbitt reproduces 20 of the greatest of Shakespeare's plays in charming prose simple enough for children to understand and enjoy them. Delightful period drawings and a classic design make this a must for every family library.The work contains a collection published by E. Nesbit with the intention of entertaining young readers and telling William Shakespeare's plays in a way they could be easily understood. She included a brief Shakespeare biography, a pronunciation guide to some of the more difficult names and a list of famous quotations, arranged by subject.Among Nesbit s best-known works are The Story of the Treasure-Seekers, The Railway Children, The Wouldbegoods and Five Children and It. Nesbit s novels departed from the children s literary tradition of fantasy-worlds popularized by Lewis Carroll and Kenneth Grahame, and instead focused on the adventures to be had from real-life experiences. Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was an English author and poet; she published her books for children under the name of E. Nesbit.
