About the Author

Widely esteemed as the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an actor and theatrical producer in addition to writing plays and sonnets. Dubbed "The Bard of Avon," Shakespeare oversaw the building of the Globe Theatre in London, where a number of his plays were staged, the best-known of which include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth. The First Folio, a printed book of 36 of his comedies, tragedies, and history plays, was published in 1623.

I gave this to myself for my birthday several years ago. The performances are excellent and it is wonderful to be able to just pick a play off the shelf and listen whenever the mood strikes. If you are the type of person who has attended Shakespearean plays regularly over the years and has days when little snippets of the Bard play in your head, this is a great set to have at hand and return to over the years.

Top rate acting and a masterful production. I've listened to 9 of these plays now, several of them many times over, and not one has disappointed. These audio plays have at last made Shakespeare accessible for me and commuting to work (which is when I listen to them)is a joy.

I had a difficult time parting with the money for this collection but it was well worth it. I recommend it highly!
