Shakespeare Monologues Collection vol. 05

William SHAKESPEARE (1564 - 1616)

LibriVox readers present the fifth collection of monologues from Shakespeare’s plays. Containing 20 parts.

William Shakespeare (April 26, 1564 – April 23, 1616) remains widely to be considered the single greatest playwright of all time. He wrote in such a variety of genres - tragedy, comedy, romance, &c - that there is always at least one monologue in each of his plays. Some of these teach a lesson, some simply characterize Shakespeare at his best, some are funny, some sad, but all are very moving. Each monologue will touch everybody differently. Some people will be so moved by a particular monologue that they will want to record it. (summary by Shurtagal)
