    Shakespeare's plays - whether a comedy like A Midsummer Night's Dream, a history like Henry IV, or a tragedy like Hamlet - are treasure troves of insight into our very humanity. These 36 lectures introduce you to Shakespeare's major plays from each of these three genres and explain the achievement that makes him the leading playwright in Western civilization.

    Story

    Having never been a truly great fan of Shakespeare i approached this set of lectures with more then a great deal of trepidation, sometimes expanding your horizons can be more like trying to look at the midday sun rather then watching a cool sunset.

    I was incredibly surprised how Prof Saccio made me fall in love with Shakespeare...not just my personal favourites like Twelfth Night but the histories the tragedies as well. The themes discussed in the lectures coupled with the performance of Saccio makes for an incredibly enjoyable, informative and thoroughly entertaining listen.

    Whether you be a fan of Shakespeare or a novice you wont be disappointed.

    Every cloud is supposed to have a silver lining, but have you ever heard of a coat with one? When Sam and Seb’s mother, Isabella, discovers a coat lined with a thousand pounds in her own second-hand clothes shop, she doesn’t know what to do with it. And money isn’t their only problem. There’s Granny, who falls in and out of love with a butcher, and then there’s the saga of Seb and Viola - will he ever ask her out?

    Captain Lionel Wafer and his fellow-pirates - Toad, Brace-and-Bit and Winkle, are no ordinary ruffians. Clinging to the belief that life should be simple, free and unplanned they set off in a converted teashop of a ship, renamed The Sinful Sausage, to sail backwards and forwards over the bounding blue. In no time a dastardly plan has formed in Captain Wafer's mind to kidnap the famous inventor, Humbert Cash-Cash, from his sunshine retreat and purloin his inventions - or at the very least pinch his diamond doorknob.

    What did you love best about The Pirates Mixed Up Voyage?

    A great story, with characters you cant help but fall in love with. Its the pirate adventures we all dreamed of as children, escaping the humdrum of society and running away to find adventure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The pirates make the story, the mismatch collection of swashbucklers each flawed in their own ways, tin ears,bad knees...a penchant for falling in love, but all suffer from the inability to read; which makes for endless fun upon the Sinful Sausage(their ship).


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Mistakenly landing on "dessert" island instead of a desert island...you can't help but love an island made entirely of pudding...i want to live in a fruitcake*yum*.
