Judge for yourself whether Lear is "a man more sinned against than sinning" in this moral tale that pits wisdom and age against ambition and youth. Experience and examine the power of Shakespeare's most cruel and violent tragedy.

Shakespeare will now make sense.

Any additional comments?

The commentary allows the reader to not only understand Shakespeare's message but also gives background into Shakespeare's life and the original story that king Lear was based upon.The narrator is the same in all smartpass audio productions of Shakespeare and I appreciate the consistency.
