Reading William Shakespeare is great, listening to a Shakespeare Audio is even better!
There are many recordings of Shakespeare plays, and some are truly great works of art, others are made by self
proclaimed 'Shakespeare actors' who think they are up to the Bard's high standard, but miserably fail...
My favourite recordings for anything William Shakespeare has written, is BBC Audiobooks Ltd. After all, they are
based where Shakespeare came from and the most famous Shakespeare stages are still in Great Britain!
