Editorial Reviews

This audio biography of William Shakespeare does not merely provide details about the Bard's personal life and accomplishments, but also gives an engaging overview of the Elizabethan era and the theatergoing experience of the time. Narrator Trevor Nichols keeps the mood upbeat, and his informative, chatty style will keep young listeners feeling as though they are right in the moment with him, observing the rowdy audience and the dramatic performances onstage. Peppered with many quotes from Shakespeare's work, this is an accessible and amusing introduction to the world of the famous playwright.
