Here are some of Shakespeare's finest speeches performed by one of the greatest Shakespearean actors of this century. It ranges from the youth of Jaques' introduction to life, 'All the world's a stage!' in "As You Like It" to the aged Prospero's goodbye to Ariel and Shakespeare's own farewell to his muse in "The Tempest": 'Now my charms are all o'erthrown!' Sir John's masterful reading brings delight to the ear and joy to the heart.
