'These tapes are invaluable not just because of the quality of the diction and presentation but because they are based on the complete text as established by Philip Edwards for the New Cambridge Shakespeare edition of the plays.

Contemporary Review

'Well worth acquiring for any good audio collection.' AVL-Multimedia Information
