Review of "Tales from Shakespeare" by Charles and Mary Lamb

    I don’t recommend that you read Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb.  The plots of the stories within the book are illogical.  The plots of the stories in this book are the same as they were when Shakespeare wrote them.   1,849 more words
