Audible Editor Reviews

William Shakespeare authored some of the world's greatest love stories, from the youthful infatuation between Romeo and Juliet to Desdemona's tragic love for Othello. This collection gathers scenes of nearly 20 of Shakespeare's plays, including Macbeth, Antony and Cleopatra, and Twelfth Night. Estelle Kohler and Bill Homewood give equally remarkable performances, providing depth and characterization to the myriad roles, perfectly portraying both the lust of Romeo and Juliet as well as the witty back-and-forth between The Taming of the Shrew's Kate and Petruchio. Shakespeare's Lovers is a worthy compilation of some of the Bard's best and most romantic work.

Publisher's Summary

Many of the greatest lovers, and the greatest love scenes in Western literature, are to be found in Shakespeare. The fresh but impassioned Romeo and Juliet, the resilient wit of Petruchio and Kate, the ardent exchanges of Lorenzo and Jessica ,and the anguished tragedies of Othello and Desdemona and Antony and Cleopatra - they all show love and courtship in its many forms. The darker side of love is here too - the spine-chilling wooing of Lady Anne by Richard, Duke of Gloucester, and the control maintained by Lady Macbeth over her husband. But it is balanced by the buffoonery of Falstaff and Mistress Ford and Pyramus and Thisbe. In their lively and imaginative selection, Bill Homewood and Estelle Kohler perform the finest love scenes form nearly twenty plays.
