About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.

About the Narrators

Richard Burton (1925–1984) was a renowned, award-winning actor of stage and screen. Among his numerous accolades were a BAFTA, two Golden Globe Awards, two Tony Awards, and seven Academy Award nominations. His narration of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince earned him a Grammy Award in 1975.

Jessica Tandy (1909–1994) was a British-born stage and film actress who spent most of her sixty-seven-year career in the United States. She acted in more than 100 stage productions and had more than sixty film and TV roles. She had many roles on Broadway, from 1930 through 1986, and her stage presence continued to grow while enacting a succession of Shakespeare’s premiere ladies, until her stellar performance as Blanche DuBois in Tennessee Williams’ masterpiece A Streetcar Named Desire. She won a total of seven Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Her film career began in 1932, and she had a role in Alfred Hitchcock’s famous The Birds. She is now well known for her late-career film roles in Fried Green Tomatoes and Driving Miss Daisy, for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
