    "It is no use my pretending to be an intellectual where the theatre is concerned," Sir John Gielgud writes in his introduction to Stage Directions. "I am, I hope, a professional." His book bears.   The finest American actor ever to read Shakespeare, the essential John Barrymore here treats us to his rendition of four classic speeches from Hamlet.

    What disappointed you about Sir John Gielgud's Guide to Hamlet? The audio experience is terrible as musical interludes repeatedly interfere with the spoken word rendering the performance a slightly heard mess. What could William Shakespeare have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you? The Bard played no part in the creation of this. Set in Denmark, the play depicts Prince Hamlet and his revenge against his uncle, Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father in order to seize his throne and marry Hamlet's mother. Hamlet is Shakespeare's longest play and is considered among the most powerful and influential works of world literature, with a story capable of "seemingly endless retelling and adaptation by others".

      John Gielgud, who has died a blazed a glorious trail through the English theatre of the 20th century and left an indelible imprint upon it. He was the first classical actor of his.   John Gielgud plays Hamlet with Yorick's skull, 's.
