A Personal Anthology of Shakespeare, compiled by Martin Clifton

A Personal Anthology of Shakespeare, compiled by Martin Clifton by William Shakespeare
By: (1564-1616)

This personal anthology is my choice of speeches from Shakespeare that I enjoy reading (that I would like to have had by heart years ago!) and that seem to me to illustrate his unsurpassed use of language. He was a man who seemed to know everything about human nature and as Orson Welles said ‘he speaks to everyone and we all claim him’. I know that it has been said that ‘it is impossible to be a great Shakespearian actor without an idiosyncratic and extraordinary voice’ and this may be so, but that does not preclude ordinary mortals from reading, hearing and enjoying Shakespeare.

Martin, thank you so very much for sharing some of the more familiar of WS's speeches.You've inspired me to listen to the play, Julius Caesar.
