Die schönsten Shakespeare-Geschichten by Andrew Matthews( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Bühnenklassiker als Erzählungen vereinfacht: Sei es die tragisch endende Liebe Julia und Romeos, das komödiantische Verwirrspiel zwischen zwei Paaren in einer Sommernacht, der Sieg König Heinrichs durch seine ungewöhnliche Klugheit und Intuition oder ein gewaltiger Sturm durch Zauberer Prospero hervorgerufen... wir werden in den Bann der Shakespearschen Welt gezogen. Die durch Sprache und Dramaturgie anspruchsvollen Stücke sind hier als Erzählungen mit leicht verständlicher Wortwahl aufbereitet und von Mirjam Pressler ins Deutsche übertragen. Sie werden damit auch für Kinder zugänglich. Manche Themen, besonders die tragischen, sind für Kinder weniger geeignet und besser denkbar für Jugendliche. Das Buch enthält acht der berühmtesten Stücke Shakespeares und ist mit seinen geheimnisvollen Farbbildern und der Personenangabe auf Naturpapier am Anfang sehr schön aufgemacht. Ab 8 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Denise Racine
