I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to get the most out of Shakespeare. The commentary and its historical notes and explanatory comments open up the text to everyone. Particularly recommended for students who need to read Shakespeare.
No. Best to take it by chunks to digest the acts/scenes.
Wish there were more Shakespeare plays in this series.
Just terrific. Enough background and footnote type commentaryso that at no point are you bored or lost. Terrific for the Shalespeare novice. Listen to this and then watch the film or see the play and you will appreciate Shakespeare. My only complaint is that Smart Pass do not have more of Shakespeare's plays available yet in this ingenious format.
