Professor Saccio goes well beyond merely introducing the plays of Shakespeare in 36 dusty lectures. First, he locates them in the context of their time and world, suggesting not only what their author might be doing in them but also why. Second, he gives us a solid grasp of each of the major plays in the three genres with a careful look at the critical issues surrounding each. Finally, he shares with us his intimate feel for the characters, their motivations, and the deep-seated passions which drive the play. Sparkling with excitement, writer and award-winning teacher Peter Saccio converts his vast scholarship to breathing life. Though passion and love of the study never replace careful planning and organization, they permeate each lecture from start to finish, offering the listener an exciting challenge. P.E.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
