Sitting in on something special

Although I don’t have to write papers for each play as I listen, I feel like I’m learning more about the plays than I did back when I took Shakespeare in college. The insight is incredible. Also as you listen you get a better idea of what it means that a classical education is about seeking the true the good and the beautiful.

It’s great even if you haven’t read!

I don’t always have time to do the reading, but I just love listening anyway.

A model for good reading

The Play's the Thing is a great mix of appreciation and careful reading.
