"The following Tales are meant to be submitted to the young reader as an introduction to the study of Shakespeare, for which purpose his 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, the words introduced into our language since his time have been as far as possible avoided." From the Preface. Contents: The Tempest; A Midsummer Night's Dream; The Winter's Tale; Much Ado About Nothing; As You Like It; The Two Gentlemen of Verona; The Merchant of Vencie; Cymbeline; King Lear; Macbeth; All's Well That Ends Well; TheTaming of the Shrew; The Comedy of Errors; Measure for Measure; Twelfth Night, or, What You Will; Timon of Athens; Romeo and Juliet; Hamlet, Prince of Denmark; Othelo; Pericles, Prince of Tyre.
