Experience the power of Shakespeare in this full-cast unabridged eduational drama.
The SmartPass range of audio education study guides enable students to experience, enjoy and appreciate the power of the written word in its fullest sense. Ideal for independent study, the entire play is performed by actors from the RSC, BBC and the Royal National Theatre, while entertaining and informative commentary and study notes, written by teachers, are presented as the plot unfolds. Designed to help break down the barriers of language, imagery and social context, listeners not only experience and explore the entire play, but social and historical notes within the commentary help them to understand what life was like in Shakespeare's time, and to appreciate how his writing changed the face of literature and why it is still enjoyed today. Teacher Editions of the guide are used in schools
