William Shakespeare was born in 1564, in Stratford upon Avon. This edition of sonnets and poems includes the narrative poems Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece which established Shakespeare's reputation when they appeared in 1593-4. The short poem, The Phoenix and the Turtle appeared alongside the work of others in Love's Martyr, published in 1601. The Sonnets were published with A Lover's Complaint in 1609. A resident of Delhi, India, NARESH KUMAR describes himself as 'a seeker' who is continuously trying to learn as much as he can, and his art is an expression of his curiosity towards the world. A firm believer in humanity, Naresh brings an experienced hand to the drawing board. His work features in a number of titles from Campfire, which include Robinson Crusoe, A Christmas Carol, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Frankenstein, and Kidnapped.

Shakespeare's tragedy about the ill-fated thane of Cawdor is brought to life via this one-man interpretation from Alan Cumming. Motivated by his scheming wife, Macbeth lusts for and then takes power, which leads to regicide and his own undoing. Building upon his performance in the audio edition of A.J. Hartley and David Hewson's Macbeth: A Novel, Cumming executes a captivating solo performance of this classic play. With an authentic Scottish accent, Cumming ably embodies Lord Macbeth. He shifts from character to character seamlessly, capturing the tone, attitude, and emphasis of each, while providing an increasing intensity that conveys the reprehensible, irreparable nature of the title character's actions. In addition to embracing the various characters, Cumming's powerful performance even elevates the play's stage directions, which-rather than feeling like crude interruptions to the dialogue-slip in smoothly like the knife used to slay King Duncan.

Gr 10 Up-Shakespeare's tragedy is brought to life in this studio-recorded full-cast performance starring James Marsters and Joanne Whalley. Marsters's Macbeth is solid, and Whalley turns in a remarkable performance of Lady Macbeth's calculated strength and eventual unraveling. The pacing and delivery of Shakespeare's lines are effective and accurate, and the use of sound to depict setting and action provide the essential cues listeners need. The sound effects and the theatrics of the Weird Sisters are wonderful. Listeners should be familiar with the story prior to listening due to the large number of characters and the lack of stage direction in audio format. A good choice to offer students as a reading companion.-Rebecca Flannery, Lyman Memorial High School, Lebanon, CT (c) Copyright 2012.

"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
