Full-cast, unabridged performance with comprehensive commentary and analysis for any student to fully understand and appreciate the play.
"And nothing is, but what is not."

Shakespeare made easy to understand!

I thoroughly enjoyed the "SmartPass Plus Audio Education Study Guide to Macbeth". As a non-native speaker of English, Shakespeare has always been an intimidating author for me. I have gone through Macbeth in several forms (book, as well as "rock opera" by US band Jag Panzer and German band Rebellion), and had the impression that I understood most of it. This Smart Pass version shattered that belief... there is so much more to learn about Macbeth!!!! Smart Pass feeds the play to you "step by step", so you understand context and references, and clearly points out major themes. Once you have been through the "step by step" version, Smart Pass gives you the entire uninterrupted play to enjoy. I would recommend Smart Pass to anyone studying, or interested in, Shakespeare. I am definitely going to download more Shakespeare plays by Smart Pass!

The play is interpreted by an excellent cast. It can be listened to for its own sake. But half the recording consists of the same interpretation but interspersed with interesting and intelligent commentaries. Even when one knows the play well, there is much to be learned.
