Summary

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 work. It is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for the young.
