I absolutely adore Shakespeare. Macbeth is my all time favorite book!

Wow, it's really difficult to name the favorite Shakespear's creation. I just love Hamlet, Richard III, Macbeth... Don't wanna mark one of them as my favorite among others.

BBC did a Shakespeare series in the 70s.
Jacobi does a decent enough Hamlet. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... PfGHoCsO0I

An update to my previous post. The BBC collection mentioned above, is no longer available on line. The full collection is still available as a box set, if anyone's interested. However Derek Jacobi's Hamlet, from the series is available here. http://www.bbc.co.uk/hamlet/past_produc ... o_be.shtml
The soliloquy can be found at 1-24-40secs.
Take care

Oh my. Just today I started reading A Midsummer Night's Dream, first Shakespeare play read, ever. I printed it in Spanish (I'm from Argentina) and read it along with this BBC reading, which I tooootally recommend.

The ancient language is so unfamiliar, and therefore, dialogue doesn't feel very natural -- the same happened to me when I read Lord of The Rings, no matter how poetic, but the actors in the BBC radio show really tied it together for me. And the poetry! My heart. But, gotta love the Old English.
