The History of Theatre and English Literature

Here are two more engaging and illuminating audio book narrations by actor Derek Jacobi.  He leads us through the gargantuan histories of both the Theatre and English Literature, while other notable actors lend their voices to make the text come alive.  These works act as worthy introductions to both topics and as good refresher courses.  To find out if your library offers these, visit the links below:
