More About William Shakespeare


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 Great Speeches and Soliloquies (Classic Literature with Classical Music)?

AudioBook is Useless  Nov 15, 2007
DO NOT buy the audiobook download of this book. You will get a 2-hour audio file with no indexing of any kind. You will not even know what soliloquies are in the file, let alone where to find them.
 
Get the download.  Aug 27, 2003
I ordered the Great Speeches CD and got the CD for "Grimm's Fairy Tales" instead. There must have been a mix-up at the factory. I guess it's difficult to match-up sleeve and CD.
So after this happened to me twice, I decided to download the title. The speeches are excellent and worth listening to. The 18th century Baroque music, however, is really overdoing it and doesn't fit in with early 17th century Shakespearean drama.
 
Good readings. A little too much music.  Jan 16, 2003
Although I've never heard of these actors before, they all do a very nice job on the readings. They are all English (Americans cannot speak Shakespeare for some reason) and with the Royal Shakespeare Company which should explain why. As opposed to most Shakespeare collections, these readings are not scenes, but just individual speeches which stand well on their own as poetry.
There is a very brief, one sentence introduction to every speech. My only quibble is that there's a musical interlude between every speech which gets a little tiring after a while.
 
Great!  Aug 21, 2000
Everyone knows that William Shakespeare wrote a great many speeches. Everyone knows that Hamlet had a soliloquy, that there was a big famous speech about a stage (or something) in ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL, that Romeo and Juliet had a "balcony scene," but this is not enough to spread the genius of Shakespeare throughout the world! This book contains nearly all the speeches ever written by this "phantom of the stage" and when all you people who have not read very much Shakespeare and think it's boring, I assure you this will change your mind. You will most likely be memorizing all of the speeches and buying all Shakespeares plays or sonnets! Buy this book and am positive that you will not regret it!
