    Experience King Lear as a powerful full-cast drama with entertaining and enlightening commentary that explains what's what and who's who as the plot unfolds. To help you get the most out of Shakespeare, the narrator offers historical insights and background information, so you can enjoy the jokes, appreciate the references, and get a real sense of Shakespeare's world.

    "Great way to understand Shakespeare"
    Overall

    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.
