This collection includes Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Macbeth, Hamlet, King Lear, Henry V, Twelfth Night, Taming of the Shrew, The Winter's Tale and The Tempest. Translating these iconic plays into thrilling prose, the nation's favourite storyteller preserves all the imaginative genius and spark of the originals, while bringing a contemporary and vibrant voice to their retelling.
