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.

very entertaining and smart educational audiobook
I felt like the speaker took me and her student by the hand and together we deöved into the story of King Lear. The play is presented in manageable pieces and outdated words or unfamiliar conventions explained on the spot. it was fun and educating and the audiobook even encourages the listener to think critically.
