For the first time in audio publishing history, all of Shakespeare’s plays are available in one extraordinary, definitive collection. Based on The Complete Pelican Shakespeare, here are all of the master’s thirty-eight plays, complete, unabridged, and fully dramatized on CDs with an original score and sound design for each play. 

A monumental project that spanned five years and cost $3 million, The Complete Arkangel Shakespeare represents the collective vision of four people: Shakespeare scholar Tom Treadwell, film producer Bill Shepherd, BBC director Clive Brill, and composer Dominique Le Gendre. Together they have assembled four hundred of the best actors of the British theater and produced a landmark digital recording with a sophisticated layering of sound that immerses the listener in Shakespeare’s world.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Listening to Hamlet again, one is struck by how many of the play’s lines have become etched in our collective memory—from the Dane’s early soliloquies to his humorous exchange with the grave digger in the final act. It’s all here in this recording, of course, and the acting is largely excellent.”

  • “Hearing Lear, rather than seeing it, emphasizes the power of Shakespearean language.”

  • “It may be Shakespeare’s shortest play, but it’s also his funniest…The Bard was never better.”

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.
