Listen to 98 hours of Shakespeare’s Poems and Plays Performed by Great Actors

By Marissa Fessenden for Smithsonian.com, 24 July 2015

r more that 400 years, the words written by William Shakespeare have enthralled audiences. Although the pronunciation may not be the same as it was in The Bard’s day, his plays and poems are meant to be heard, not simply read. And now, even if the local theater isn’t putting on a production of Julius Caesar or Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare’s words can be enjoyed from the comfort of home.

Thanks to Ulysses’ Classicala Spotify channel by user Ulysses Stone, more than 98 hours of actors performing Shakespeare are now available online, writes Josh Jones for Open Culture.
