Shakespeare’s Histories- The Goulablogger Way

Buy Shakespeare’s An Age of Kings (costs a third of the nearest competitor)  and Shakespeare’s English Kings (reasonably-priced paperback and only the first one hundred eighty-six pages need concern you, and you’ll get your history straight, not dramatized). Watch, read, and enjoy. Or read, watch, and enjoy.

(You can also play a fair game of “spot the famous face in his/her youth”, and and even longer  game of “How many 60s-80s BBC regulars can you recognize?”)

Yes, the picture is not the best, but how often do you get almost sixteen hours of really good tv for little over a dollar an hour? And the book is very good  (almost too good/detailed) at disentagngling the history behind the plays.

Two Thumbs way up.
