ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on the habit of reading. The author considers reading by actors more proper because, according to him, reading is part of the actor's craft. Though authors may have accurate knowledge of the tone and rhythm of their own work, they do not have the ability to communicate that tone and rhythm to others, by means of the voice. There are two types of actor-readers, the reader of a single role, and the reader of multiple roles. Theatre artist Emlyn Williams has perfected the second type of reading skill.
