Richard II with Derek Jacobi
September 23, 2016

We’re celebrating the legacy of Shakespeare, with a Shakespearean themed best-of  from our Touch to See collection. Here’s one we made earlier, that’s hugely popular with our library members…

Jeremy Irons

This speech is from Richard II, Act II, Scene 1, the dying John of Gaunt, Richard II uncle and counsellor, expresses his pride and love for his country and his fears of the disaster about to destroy it. This speech is included as part of the tactile audio guide for ‘Costume of Richard II’ , which Derek Jacobi lends his voice to. It’s part of the Touch to See book Shakespeare Country which you can borrow from our library.
