Publisher's Summary

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. With the intimacy of radio the full beauty and meaning of some of the most lyrical lines ever written can be truly heard: tenderness and passion, betrayal and bigotry are brilliantly evoked as the tale comes to its tragic conclusion. Revitalised, original, and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium.

Great listening!

I downloaded this for a student. It is so much better than previous recordings we've listened to. It has great readers, great sound effects (along the lines of the Dicaprio version with motorcycles!) and makes Shakespeare a much more enjoyable experience for a student who cannot read it on his own. Thank you!
