More About the Author

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised on 26 April 1564. Thought to have been educated at the local grammar school, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he went on to have three children, at the age of eighteen, before moving to London to work in the theatre. Two erotic poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were published in 1593 and 1594 and records of his plays begin to appear in 1594 for Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. Shakespeare's tragic period lasted from around 1600 to 1608, during which period he wrote plays including Hamlet and Othello. The first editions of the sonnets were published in 1609 but evidence suggests that Shakespeare had been writing them for years for a private readership.

Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. The first collected edition of his works was published in 1623.

I only really bought this for David Tennant, but it is much better than that.
Yes, Mr Tennant's soft scottish voice is dreamy and is perfect for reciting love poetry, but the other readers are great too.

Ideal if you like Shakespeare, Poetry, David Tennant or all three.

This is an excellent cd (or gift) for anyone who loves Shakespeare's sonnets. It contains 75 out of the 154 sonnets read by all very credible Shakespearean actors, each with their unique approach to the sonnets. I'm a fan of David Tennant, but truly all of the readers are fantastic in their own right. Great for listening in the car, relaxing at home, in a quiet moment or if you want your dose of the Bard's genius.

Part of the joy of being a fan of David Tennant is the worlds he opens up to you. A few years ago I would never have dreamed of studying Hamlet, going to the theatre to watch Much Ado About Nothing, or buying a cd of Shakespeare's Sonnets. What a pleasure it has been to hear them read so well by all concerned, and then to be so moved as to read up about them and find out what they are all about. To my surprise I often reach for this cd and play it randomly just to hear such lyrical poems, even if I don't understand them all yet. Greatly recommended.
