More About William Shakespeare, Ciaran Hinds, Estelle Kohler & Arkangel Cast


William Shakespeare William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 1564, and his birth is traditionally celebrated on April 23. The facts of his life, known from surviving documents, are sparse. He was one of eight children born to John Shakespeare, a merchant of some standing in his community. William probably went to the King s New School in Stratford, but he had no university education. In November 1582, at the age of eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway, eight years his senior, who was pregnant with their first child, Susanna. She was born on May 26, 1583. Twins, a boy, Hamnet ( who would die at age eleven), and a girl, Judith, were born in 1585. By 1592 Shakespeare had gone to London working as an actor and already known as a playwright. A rival dramatist, Robert Greene, referred to him as an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers. Shakespeare became a principal shareholder and playwright of the successful acting troupe, the Lord Chamberlain s Men (later under James I, called the King s Men). In 1599 the Lord Chamberlain s Men built and occupied the Globe Theater in Southwark near the Thames River. Here many of Shakespeare s plays were performed by the most famous actors of his time, including Richard Burbage, Will Kempe, and Robert Armin. In addition to his 37 plays, Shakespeare had a hand in others, including Sir Thomas More and The Two Noble Kinsmen, and he wrote poems, including Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. His 154 sonnets were published, probably without his authorization, in 1609. In 1611 or 1612 he gave up his lodgings in London and devoted more and more time to retirement in Stratford, though he continued writing such plays as The Tempest and Henry VII until about 1613. He died on April 23 1616, and was buried in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford. No collected edition of his plays was published during his life-time, but in 1623 two members of his acting company, John Heminges and Henry Condell, put together the great collection now called the First Folio."

William Shakespeare lived in Stratford-Upon-The Avon. William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and died in 1616.

Reviews - What do customers think about Antony and Cleopatra (Arkangel Complete Shakespeare)?

Passion and Power Politics (Arkangel Shakespeare)  Jun 15, 2007
I think it was Aristotle who wrote that in order to have a tragedy you must have a truly heroic figure brought low by a single character flaw. Mark Antony, master of half the world, is brought low by his love for a conniving woman. Or at least that's the surface story. Beneath the surface lies the story of two people bound together by political expediency, military necessity, economic need, and passion. They shamelessly use and manipulate each other, but when all is said and done, they truly have passionate feelings for each other. I'm not sure you could really call it love. Whatever you call it, it serves as the core of a very good story that is part adventure, part romance, all tragedy.

Arkangel's production values are excellent. The sound quality is very good, the lines are well-spoken, and the plot is easy to follow even if you have never read the play.
 
Excellent dramatization of one of Shakespeare's best  Sep 7, 2006
I have just finished listening to Antony and Cleopatra and cannot speak highly enough of this fine recording. The acting is as good or better than any of the stage productions I've seen and the scenes between Antony and Cleopatra crackle with sensuality (although I did wonder how they make the kissing sounds). This is the first of this series I've listened to, but I plan to go through the entire library if this is representative of the overall quality.
