Mary Ronan Drew I really need to get inspired. I've been reading Hamlet for months. I read Act I (or maybe not even that much), put the book down, and forget it for two weeks. Then I re-read Act I, put the book down, and forget it for three weeks. Sigh. How did I ever get through college and graduate school with this kind of self-discipline? Perhaps I used it all up back in the day and there's none left . . .

Laurel Hicks With plays, I find it best to listen and read along.

There's an iPad app called "Shakespeare Pro" that has text and helps for all the plays. Best feature: click on a word and get definition powered by "Shakespeare's Words."

Libraries should have the plays on CD. I requested "Arkangel Shakespeare Complete" from my library, and they ordered the entire set! Audible has some good dramatizations for about $9.00 each. There see some free audio dramatizations here:
