Lamb co-authored them with his beloved sister Mary. The pair lived together for life, having gone through immense trauma caused by mental illness and tragedy. However, far from being a melancholy duo, they led an active and ample social life in the company of some of the literary greats of the Romantic movement of the 19th century. His glittering circle included contemporary poets like Coleridge, Wordsworth, Southey and Leigh Hunt, the Chinese scholar Thomas Manning, political philosophers like William Godwin and his daughter the famous creator of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, and essayists like William Hazlitt.

Charles Lamb also wrote excellent essays compiled in a volume titled The Essays of Elia and tried his hand at poetry and drama.

Nov 07, Christine rated it liked it Shelves: short-stories , fantasy , sci-fi , shakespeare , women-writers. Presents an interesting look at Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet. Mar 24, Elizabeth Fitzgerald rated it really liked it Shelves: bookcrossing. What a delight it was. I enjoyed all the different kinds of stories. There were stories about Shakespeare himself meeting gods, witches and travellers from the future , about his plays mostly being performed for alien races and different versions of his plays a vampiric Romeo, King Lear as a computer.

I was a little disappointed to notice a bit of a bias in the stories.

09 King Lear Tales from Shakespeare Charles and Mary Lamb

All in all, the structure of the book was excellent. I was a little rusty on my Lear and all the abbreviations of the names made things difficult. I put down the book a number of times while reading that story. Once past it, however, I hardly put the book down and it was rather made up for by the lovely version of Lear entitled Queen Lyr. If you like Shakespeare without being a purist and if you like speculative fiction, you should definitely enjoy this book.
