Shakespeare, the Works
Part of the Audio Education Study Guides series
We understand how difficult it can be for a student to feel involved in the world of literature, and to evoke the excitement of live theatre through study, and so have created the SmartPass range of audio education study guides to enable students to experience, enjoy and appreciate the power of the written word in its fullest sense.
Ideal for independent study, this entertaining drama is written by teachers and performed by actors from the RSC, BBC and the Royal National Theatre.
The guide is an ideal introduction to any Shakespeare text, as well as a source of insight and information for anyone who want to know more about Shakespeare's life and times.
Designed to help break down the barriers of language, imagery and social context, listeners not only experience and explore scenes from popular plays and poems, but by understanding what life was like in Shakespeare's day they develop an appreciation of how his writing changed the face of literature and why it is still enjoyed today.
The drama focuses on key themes, relevant historical, social and biographical background.
