Conte d'Apres Shakespeare (1908), the latter a prose adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest, the volume under notice a strict French translation of that play."The Tempest was Dulac's second major gift book work.[He] can be considered a perfect illustrator for Shakespeare because of his tendency to always mix in with serious pictures some humorous ones, just as Shakespeare inserted scenes of comic relief between his serious ones. Also, like Shakespeare, who is sometimes believed to have been a sailor because of his knowledge of seagoing lore, Dulac shows sensitivity to the nuances of the sea with his beautiful greens and blues and patterns of surf and rock.Hughey 19y.
