Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Straightforward, noncontroversial interpretations…It pays off richly with less familiar works like King John, an early history that dramatizes the indecisive king’s attempt to settle an alliance with France. The chief merits of this production are Michael Maloney’s performance as the scheming bastard son of Richard I and the intrigues surrounding the death of young Arthur, claimant to the throne.” AudioFile

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.
