Excellent young scholar's intro to Shakespeare
We used this unabridged audio Julius Caesar to introduce our daughter to Shakespeare as a high school freshman. She rather enjoyed the play, had good comprehension of the plot, and agreed that the integrated annotations helped her. I had initially feared that the constant interruptions for annotation would be distracting, and that the additional listening time that they required would be discouraging, but this was not the case at all. The notes provided just enough of a guide to the action (I especially appreciated how it illuminated Mark Antony's crowd manipulation) without getting the listener bogged down unnecessarily with rabbit trails.

Indeed helped me to appreciate Shakespeare!
This was my first try at listening to Shakespeare and it was enthralling. There's something about listening to the story unfold and imagining the settings and situations that, I believe, engage you more than even watching the play. The commentary was excellent! In fact as a Shakespeare novice, I don't think I would have gotten nearly as much out of it.
