The well-aimed insult was never in better shape than when Shakespeare mastered the art of defining dramatic conflict with rapier wit rather than swordplay. This audiocassette is a collection of some of the most cutting jeers and outrageous affronts ever spoken and as such can be a fine resource for just those moments you don't want to let slip by without comment. It also provides the ultimate opportunity to access Shakespeare's world of words in an immediate and visceral manner. Other readers include Susan Anspach, Jamie Farr, Robert Forster, Arte Johnson, Melissa Manchester, Loretta Swit, and Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.

This clever presentation of Shakespeare's wit and literary prowess is like a foreign-language tape gone entertainingly and humorously awry. Instead of hearing grammar exercises though, the listener is presented with line after line of Shakespearean put-downs covering any number of subjects from virginity to obesity. The quotes, spoken in theatrical Elizabethan English, are given modern-day, around-the-water-cooler translations, which are light, helpful, and unfortunately (for those of us born in the twentieth century and not the sixteenth) absolutely necessary. While old, these barbs are still very sharp and very funny. B.P. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
