From AudioFile:

Are you ready for a Shakespeare refresher? Geraldine McCaughrean, master story reteller, has taken Shakespeare's finest, including THE TEMPEST, OTHELLO, MACBETH, and HAMLET, and crafted retellings underscoring the adventure, irony, and universality contained within each tale. She punctuates her versions with famous lines from Shakespeare's original plays, creating a most satisfying package. James Wilby is the skillful and passionate storyteller whose immediacy and urgency bring the spirit of Shakespeare to the listener's ears and soul. He gives voice to hero, heroine, schemer, abettor, or fool--each as ardently as the next. A listening pleasure. A.R. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
