More About William Shakespeare, Joseph Fiennes, Maria Miles & Arkangel Cast
William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon." His extant works include some collaboration, consisting of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
William Shakespeare lived in Stratford-Upon-The Avon. William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and died in 1616.
Reviews - What do customers think about Romeo & Juliet (Arkangel Complete Shakespeare)?
Excellent Audio Play Jul 9, 2008
This is a performed audio play, not just read by one voice. It is very easy to follow along, and distinguish the different characters.
Joseph Fiennes and Maria Miles are superb in their roles. Apr 3, 2008
The quality of this recording is excellent and the performers give very skillful interpretations. Fiennes and Miles are particularly effective as the "star crossed lovers".
Shakespeare is Great! Apr 10, 2007
This is a terrific recording. My son's teacher recommended he buy this to listen while he read the written words. It made Shakespeare so much more accessible.
For the most part well done Aug 3, 2006
Before I listened to this play, I had read the Folgers Shakespeare Library version. I believe that helped me enjoy the play much more. I am not going to review the play, only this audio version. The music set the mood of the scenes, and the sound effects brought the landscape to life in my imagination. The cast acted out the parts superbly! The only complaint I have is, When Romeo says, "He jest at scares that never felt a wound," I didn't feel he conveyed enough emotion on that part. After all, in the previous scene, or the same scene depending on how you interpret the scenes, MERCUTIO was mocking his love for Rosaline harshly. If you are not familiar with the play I highly recommend reading it first, that will make it easier to follow.
I Beg to Disagree Nov 30, 2005
It's worth the price just to hear an unabridged version. Capulet is wonderful. The friar is the best ever. Juliet is understandable but has the passion in her voice of a person who's been there a few times too many. But Romeo...a one-emotion three-hour agony to listen to. I've taught teens for thirty years; they don't languish in one emotion. If wallowing were an art form, Fiennes would be the grand master. He obviously doesn't remember how it was long ago when he was a teen.
