Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shakespeare Sessions With John Barton And Peter Hall (314652) (DVD) 
Here, Barton the great expert on Shakespeare's language, works with American actors emphasising their cultural strengths as he helps them to unpick the many levels of meaning in the text. John Barton is an excellent teacher and this is a great opportunity to be able to 'audit' his classes. "The Shakespeare Sessions" is a valuable resource for teachers, students, performers and audiences who want to deepen their understanding of what these plays are saying about the human condition. Barton is old, gentle, wise, erudite and passionately committed to honouring the value of the text. He embodies a wealth of knowledge that is tantamount to a national treasure.
