Essential Shakespeare highlights eleven plays and two sonnets: 29 and 147. Narrator Mary Denham begins with synopses of the plays before the chosen scenes are heard. This is an immense help to those not familiar with the works, helping to place the scenes in context. Simon Callow, best known for his roles in the films A Room With a View and Amadeus, is the most remarkable of the cast members, although all perform well.
