Publisher's Summary

This entertaining introduction to Shakespeare's work weaves biographical information with excerpts from 33 of his plays. Informative, well-researched commentary, written by two Royal Shakespeare Company actors, provides a glimpse of the man and little-known lore about his work.


What the Critics Say

"Hampton and Weston avoid an overly scholarly approach and present Shakespeare as flesh and blood....Dench is of course splendid....these solid vocal cords will melt listeners, thaw them, and resolve them into dewy delight." (The Philadelphia News)

Shakespeare by Dench

With Dame Judi Dench as the female voice throughout, this audiobook could only be rated as excellent. She could read the toilet paper wrap and people would pay to hear it. The context of the book and the history of his plays is of great interest and done quite well.
