Another Shakespeare recording from the golden age of Canadian radio drama. Though thin and laconic to American ears, these CBC productions are nonetheless superior to the stuffy BBC versions of the same titles. (In production, the British tend to entomb their classic plays.) If this Richard II hath not vigor, it stinteth not in poetry; it is always poetic and sometimes sings. It's best heard while reading along with an annotated copy of the script. This reviewer's copy contained some technical glitches, so caveat emptor.
