The Rape of Lucrece is a brilliant, brutal narrative poem giving an account of the terrible crime of rape and its dreadful consequences for victim and perpetrator.

As ever, though, Shakespeare goes beyond the obvious, following the ramifications of the crime wherever they take him, shining a light on a band of human behaviour encompassing the bestial and the beautiful.

Gerard Logan's reading of Shakespeare's 1594 work is a stunning performance. Olivier Award-nominated Logan's emotion and varied tones make this title perfect for any listener, whether or not they have studied this great work.

This title will appeal to many people, from casual listeners to lovers of narrative poems, and of course is the perfect masterclass for any aspiring performer. The incredible production values and music (composed especially for this edition) add to the overall sense of perfection.

    " Reading this book made me fully appreciate Shakespeare's works. And at the end of it all, I could not help but pity Shylock. "

    " So I'm reading this for school and I actually like it so far. I've just finished Act IV scene 1 and I'm preforming Shylock's soliolquy in Act III on Thursday. Overall, I've liked it and can't wait to read more Shakespeare this summer! "

    " It has been read and over-read for school till it has lost all its dramatic value for me. But the true fact of the matter is that Shylock is an everlasting character who will never erase himself from common memory. "
