About the Author
Ted Hughes was born in 1930 in West Yorkshire, England. He is the author of many collections of poetry, most recently, Wolfwatching. Mr. Hughes was appointed poet laureate of England in 1984. He lives in North Tawton, Devon. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Essential Shakespeare highlights eleven plays and two sonnets: 29 and 147. Narrator Mary Denham begins with synopses of the plays before the chosen scenes are heard. This is an immense help to those not familiar with the works, helping to place the scenes in context. Simon Callow, best known for his roles in the films A Room With a View and Amadeus, is the most remarkable of the cast members, although all perform well. R.A.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Having said that, this is an excellent selection and a useful thing to have. No one has expressed the real goings on of the psyche with so much clarity and affection as Shakespeare.
