    "An Absolute Classic!"

    I am thrilled to see that this classic recording has been issued as an audio download! Originally devised as a one-man recital for the theatre, AGES OF MAN is a marvelous selection of Shakespearean speeches sublimely performed by Sir John Gielgud. It provides an excellent introduction to Shakespeare, and has been an inspiration to actors, scholars, and fans of the poet's work for decades.
