Editorial Reviews

In this classic Shakespearian text, the Bard gives his take on Ovid's tale of "The Rape of Lucrece", an ancient Roman story of sexual violence, tragedy, and political intrigue. Written in 1594, this is one of Shakespeare's lesser-known works, though still amongst his most beautiful. David Ian Davies gives an extraordinary performance. He really proves his ability as one of the world's most capable audiobook thespians. Fraught with turmoil and beautiful language, this Shakespeare performance is not to be missed.
