Shakespeare Monologues By William Shakespeare

  Categorie: Dramatic Works, Poetry
  Author: William Shakespeare

This is truly a delightful compilation of some of the best known and loved passages from William Shakespeare’s plays. Most readers would be familiar with all or at least some of them. If you’ve studied Shakespeare in school or college, plays like The Merchant of Venice and Macbeth were probably assigned texts. However, if you haven’t encountered these plays before, Shakespeare Monologues is a great volume to browse through and enjoy at leisure.

It’s important to know that there is a distinction between the terms “monologue” and “soliloquy.” Since Shakespeare’s plays often contain both these, the reader should be informed that a monologue is a speech delivered by one person and usually made to an audience, while a soliloquy is more of a kind of self-talk and a sort of thinking aloud, delivered by a character to none but himself/herself, presuming that he/she is alone. For instance, Mark Antony’s “Friends, Romans, countrymen…” speech from Julius Caesar is a monologue, while Hamlet’s “To be or not to be…” is a soliloquy.

This volume contains fifteen monologues from various plays. Ranging from Portia’s memorable speech, “The quality of mercy is not strained…” from The Merchant of Venice, to Juliet’s impassioned cry, “Wherefore art thou, Romeo?” from Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth’s tormented “Is this a dagger I see before me?” which he speaks just before he commits the heinous crime of Duncan’s murder.
