Summary

The Passionate Pilgrim, a collection of beautiful verses by Shakespeare and other contemporary poets, is here paired with the Bard's intriguing allegorical work The Phoenix and the Turtle, which focuses on the love and death of two birds - a Phoenix and a Turtle Dove. Mysterious and haunting, these rarely recorded works are richly rewarding, performed to perfection by Gerard Logan. Highly praised for his performance of Shakespeare's The Rape of Lucrece, Performance Audio now bring you a wonderful set of readings from the Olivier Award nominated actor Gerard Logan.

This collection of readings will delight and enthral in equal measure, and will appeal to many people, from casual listeners to Shakespeare fans. It may also be seen as a masterclass for aspiring performers, and will enhance any audiobook collection.
