After spending 4 hours listening to this recording, a modern teenager will be able to understand the historic context of the play and discuss the concepts as an adult

Fantastic! Even my seven year old raved!

If you have a Shakespeare phobia, this is the collection for you. I can't say enough great things about it. The history is good, the actors present it beautifully and the narrator will have you coming back for more. Definitely worth the money!

Makes Shakespeare understandable

This makes Shakespeare so much more accessible, Much better than when I was at school, I am now able to appreciate why he is considered the best writer ever. Love the background history too.
