    "Making Shakespeare fun and accessible"

    This audio guide encourages newcomers to Shakespeare by making the language accessible and using a friendly and down to earth approach. The commentary and dramatisation of the play is excellent with contextual information as well as comments and explanations of language, meaning and dramatic devices. You have the choice of listening to the play first or going straight into the play with commentary. I would recommend having a go at understanding the play first either by reading or listening as it is surprising how much you will grasp on your own. The commentary will then enrich and open up the text further. A really superb resource for anyone studying Shakespeare and a good example of the potential subject matter one might include in essays.

    "Buyer Beware"

    A very lively production, well acted and presented, but...

    This is developed as a instructional unit, and normally would be accompanied by printed (or pdf) guides; these not available from Audible. I suspect this is true with all Smartpass products, so buyer beware: if you want the instructional materials, you will need to purchase separately from Smartpass/UK.

    This title also has a production error, from 2:28 to 2:39 in the recording, the end of Act 2 is repeated.
