Poetry & Drama • 1.25 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

This is a most welcome reissue of the late Sir John’s Grammy-winning recording of favorite Shakespearean speeches. Opening with Jacques’s meditation on the seven ages of man from AS YOU LIKE IT, he proceeds to illustrate these ages with soliloquies from the Bard’s plays and sonnets. And a fine job he makes of it! The listener gets the essence of what earned Sir John his reputation as one of the top classical actors of the century--his thrilling voice, his impeccable diction, his heroic dignity, his lyricism and passion. A must for every library and school. Y.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 00]
