    Tales From Shakespeare

    by Charles Lamb

    Book Description

    The titles in this series are mainly new editions of titles in the "Longman Simplified English Series". They are suitable for students at upper intermediate level, including those preparing for the Cambridge First Certificate. Every book has been re-edited to ensure ease of understanding and naturalness of language and keeps within the 2000 word Defining Vocabulary of the "Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English". Any additional vocabulary used is explained in the glossary. All titles feature a four to five page introduction to the authors, characters and themes of the texts, giving students not only background information, but also help in literary appreciation. Additionally, there is exercise material at the back of each book: 50 questions on factual detail, with a further 20 more open-ended questions for written work or to stimulate discussion.
