BARBS FROM THE BARD Shakespearean Insults with Modern Translations and Notes

by | Read by Stephanie Beacham, Roger Rees, et al.

Contemporary Culture • 1.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

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. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
