A Shakespeare Society Production. The complete play in five acts. William Shakespeare lived between 1552-1616, but his work endures and is enjoyed the world over.
This is one of the Caedmon Shakespeare recordings; the cast includes Siobhan McKenna (Viola); Paul Scofield (Malvolio), Robert Hardy (Orsino), Vanessa Redgrave (Olivia), and Willoughby Goddard (Sir Toby). McKenna is one of the best Viola's I've ever heard - wonderful. And to Faynus and others - if you don't understand Shakespeare, it means you haven't mastered English, your language. The problem isn't with Shakespeare... If you keep trying, you'll get it; it probably takes less effort than it would for me to understand American football!
Perfect to study with!
I'm taking a class in Shakespeare, and I had never read or seen this play before. Hearing the actors perform the play was invaluable! I reccomend getting an audiobook for every play if you're reading Shakespeare. It really helps to hear it. Now I even know where the jokes are!
great play except i cannot understand shakspere lingo whatsoever. if anybody has this same problem, which i know there must be a couple, there are books such as No Fear Shakspeare and Shakspeare Made Easy that have the original play on one side and a modernized text on the other. they are quite usful and you can still enjoy William Shakespeare's stories.
