Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Listening to Hamlet again, one is struck by how many of the play’s lines have become etched in our collective memory—from the Dane’s early soliloquies to his humorous exchange with the grave digger in the final act. It’s all here in this recording, of course, and the acting is largely excellent.” AudioFile on Hamlet
“Hearing Lear, rather than seeing it, emphasizes the power of Shakespearean language.” AudioFile on King Lear
“It may be Shakespeare’s shortest play, but it’s also his funniest…The Bard was never better.” AudioFile on The Comedy of Errors

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
