Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Shakespeare’s first comic romance is interesting more for what it shows about the Bard's developing skills and the coining of the phrase ‘love is blind’ than for its quality. Nonetheless, it manages to hold the stage even today, as illustrated by this well-acted and tastefully produced audio version.…the production excels in spirit, poetry and clarity.” AudioFile

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.
