About Book

From Library Journal

From AudioFile
Shakespeare's first Roman play rivals GLADIATOR in gore. It features a steady parade of violence, revenge, rape, mutilation, and even cannibalism. The tragedy of two feuding families may be best enjoyed as an action-packed melodrama, which is how director Clive Brill smartly interprets it. This wonderful performance ranks with the best recorded Shakespeare. Thrilling organ chords underscore moments of tension and nicely supplement the atmospheric music by Dominique Le Gendre. The entire cast performs their larger-than-life roles with a grandness that never becomes hammy. Their sharp diction is also a continual pleasure. The villains are the most fun, especially Harriet Walter, whose Tamara is deliciously guileful. G.H.

Book Description
The introduction reviews the few known facts about this early Shakespeare play and discusses the puzzling problems of its date and authorship. The text has been freshly edited with the aim of presenting the play as revised for the first recorded performance in 1594, with the addition of stage
business from the prompt-copy from which the Folio edition derives.
