SHAKESPEARE ALOUD

Henry VI part 3 – Act I, Scene 1 in Somerville, MA

When I’m doing these suburban scenes, I need to somewhere with less traffic.  It didn’t feel that distracting while I was reading, but the audio of this isn’t great.  However, it’s much worse at the beginning than it is by and large throughout, if that’s any consolation for listeners.

Full of action and bravado, this white-hot entrance into the Wars of the Roses is arched beautifully for artful conflict and argument.  I have not yet investigated exactly why Stanley Wells and Gary Taylor choose this play as authored first in the series of three, but you can be sure that will wind up in the Discussion section of this site shortly.
