More Tales from Shakespeare


Back Cover

The More Tales from Shakespeare collection showcases five popular stories from William Shakespeare. Much Ado about Nothing is a comedy set in Italy, which shows how mistaken identity can ruin even the strongest of love, yet understanding and forgiveness can undo all damage done. Hamlet is a tragedy set in Denmark, where a young prince seeks revenge for his father, the King of Denmark. As You Like It is a comedy with several subplots, featuring familial bonds, romance, friendship, and loyalty. Julius Caesar is a historical tragedy based on the life of the titular Roman politician, where friendship, honour, and duty are all put to the test.
