9780880450294: Under the Greenwood Tree: Shakespeare for Young People

This unique book for young people combines Shakespeare's ringing poetry with full-page illustrations in full color throughout. Arranged in accordance with the seven stages of life, the book introduces the poetry for its own sake, without trying it to the complex story lines. It ranges from the elves and fairies of A Midsummer Night's Dream to the youthful heroism of Henry V and on through the involvements of middle age and the sadness and consolations of old age. The introduction is by A.L. Rouse, and there is a glossary.

From the Publisher:

This book was the culmination of a devout wish on the part of the publisher to present Shakespeare so that children of a very visual generation could be introduced to the joys of his poetry early in life, and then go on to enjoy the plays and sonnets themselves. Choosing the selections and working over four years with the gifted artists, Robin and Pat Dewitt, was sheer pleasure. And when the illustrations were done, and we laid them out, from beginning to end, around the perimeter of our long hallway and I saw how beautifully they worked together, I knew we had the makings of a new Shakespeare classic!

About the Author:

William Shakespeare needs no introduction. Suffice it to say that any child or adult touched by his poetry will enjoy its rich rewards and call it to memory all the days of his or her life.
