Synopsis: The celebrated actor offers his insights on William Shakespeare and his works, describing the challenges and rewards of acting in the Bard's works, and presenting portraits of Ashcroft, Evans, Olivier, Redgrave, and Richardson.

From Library Journal: In his latest remembrance, a chatty Gielgud ( Backward Glances: Times for Reflection and Distinguished Company , Limelight Eds., 1990) fills in details about his remarkable 70-year career. He chronicles his greatest triumphs and disappointments and provides tidbits about his famous costars and friends. Gielgud intended to become an architect if he didn't succeed in acting, and his interest in design is evident in a fascinating commentary on Shakespearean settings and costumes. He has a natural, conversational way with his text, but the body of this book is only 90 pages. The rest is comprised of a comprehensive introduction--Gielgud's Shakespearean chronology--as well as approximately 60 pages of most interesting appendixes: various criticisms of Gielgud's performances, rehearsal notes from Harley Granville-Barker's production of King Lear , and various cast lists of Gielgud's performances. This book will be a delight for those who have followed Gielgud's career or simply love Shakespeare and tales of the stage. In addition, it will be welcomed by any collection where research may be done of 20th-century Shakespearean performances.
