This was an excellent production of King Lear. The download includes two files, one with commentary throughout and a second file that is the play without commentary, allowing the listener to decide how much explanation is desired. I listened with the commentator and she does a great job of setting the scene before the play begins, provides a good overview of Shakespeare and his time period, and then provides a expert "translation" of the text. This series would be especially helpful to those studying Shakespeare in school. I listened to this in conjunction with Bill Bryson's book Shakespeare.
