No idea how this turns out, but I’ve always wanted to see/hear/watch the entire canon. In keeping with that order? Spooled up, I’ve been listening to the Shakespeare (Oxford, Prof. Emma Smith) lectures on iTunes U. As an addendum, after the lecture about Comedy Errors, I listened to play. As noted elsewhere, perfect for Austin’s traffic.

Digging around, I found all three of Henry 6, the earliest of
Shakespeare’s “histories.” I’m unsure if I can do this the whole way through, but it might be terribly enlightening.
