Tales from Shakespeare

 
9780173110584: Tales from Shakespeare

A irr FROM THE LIBRARY OF PROF. GEORGE F. SWAIN OCT. 20, 1933 EDITORS NOTE. TN order to adapt Lamb sT ales of Shakespeare to the use of children in the schools, it has been found necessary to make a few verbal alterations, and to omit entirely the story Measure forM easure. It also seemed wise to omit the portion of Lamb sP reface especially applicable toE nglish schools, as the following quotation would indicate: Instead of recommending these Tales to the perusal of young gentlemen, who can read them so much better in the originals, their kind assistance is rather requested in explaining to their sisters such parts as are hardest to understand. Such a recommendation would be hardly appreciated in our schools, where the misses have equal advantages with their brothers, and do not feel the need of such assistance. The pronunciation of the more difficult proper names has been given on page 311. Gr. J. 8. Gushing Co., Printers, 115 High Street, Boston.
