More About William Shakespeare
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 The Tempest (Arkangel Complete Shakespeare)?
The Tempest (Archangel Complete Shakespeare) Jun 30, 2008
This is the first of the Archangel Complete Shakespeare series that I purchased, and I am more than pleased. As the previous critic said, from the very first moment, the music and the sound effects take you up and place you right in the middle of it all. The acting is superb, and I must mention Bob Peck's performance, as Prospero, as particularly wonderful. He is, in fact, (as soon as I read of his participation in this) the reason I bought this excellently produced CD. How good it is to have this recording of the sadly late, and truly great actor's work. I highly recommend this, and all of the Archangel Complete Shakespeare works.
