ROMEO AND JULIET Shakespeare Appreciated: SmartPass Audio Education Study Guide

by | Read by Joan Walker and a Full Cast

Audio Theater • 7.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2006

Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona—so begins one of the most famous and most beloved plays in the English language, ROMEO AND JULIET. But for the modern high school student, the emotional nuances, bawdy puns, and sixteenth-century references can be a bit overwhelming. SMARTPASS and the engaging and energetic "pass master," Joan Walker, come to the rescue with detailed, understandable, and entertaining audio explications of the language, plot, theme, and history behind almost every stanza. Along the way, a talented full cast presents the play in its entirety with grace and clarity. The listener is encouraged to pause the program and let the words and lessons sink in. A valuable tool for anyone interested in digging a little deeper into the Bard's timeless work. B.P. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
