Tales from Shakespeare is an English children's book written by Charles Lamb and his sister Mary Lamb in 1807. The book is designed to make the stories of Shakespeare's plays familiar to the young.[1] However, as noted in the authors' Preface, "[Shakespeare's] words are used whenever it seemed possible to bring them in; and in whatever has been added to give them the regular form of a connected story, diligent care has been taken to select such words as might least interrupt the effect of the beautiful English tongue in which he wrote: therefore, words introduced into our language since his time have been as far as possible avoided." Mary Lamb was responsible for the comedies, while Charles wrote the tragedies; they wrote the preface between them.

First published in 1807, "Tales from Shakespeare" is the classic retelling of Shakespeare's plays by brother and sister duo Charles and Mary Lamb. All told twenty of Shakespeare's plays are represented in this work. On what basis the two made their selection of tales is unknown, the English Histories are left unattempted, as well as the Roman Plays. Of the comedies only "Love's Labour's Lost" is omitted. As Alfred Ainger comments in his introduction "perhaps Miss Lamb felt how little would have remained of the original comedy when the poetical element in its language and the brilliant wit of its dialogue had been removed." What is represented of Shakespeare's plays is a magnificent retelling of some of his most popular works, ideal for introducing young readers to the brilliance of the Bard. As the two write in their preface "The following Tales are meant to be submitted to the young reader as an introduction to the study of Shakespeare," so "that the true Plays of Shakespeare may prove to them in older years--enrichers of the fancy, strengtheners of virtue, a withdrawing from all selfish and mercenary thoughts, a lesson of all sweet and honourable thoughts and actions." This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, includes an introduction by Alfred Ainger, and illustrations by Arthur Rackham.
