: Under the Greenwood Tree, Shakespeare for Young People, combines Shakespeare's memorable poetry with full-page illustrations in full color throughout. Arranged in accordance with the seven stages of life, as in "All the world's a stage," the book presents the poetry from the plays for their own sake, without attempting to tie them to the story lines. The book begins with the elves and fairies of A Midsummer Night's Dream, then proceeds to youthful romance and heroism, the involvements of men and women at their prime, the slowing down of middle age and the sadness and consolations of old age and death. The introduction is by Shakespearean authority A.L. Rouse. A glossary is included.
