King Lear - Clive Merrison, Samantha Bond, Trevor Peacock, William Shakespeare I just started listening to the play this afternoon on my way in to work. Having recently listened to Henry VIII it struck me how distinctive the voices are in this play. Within a few words or lines, you can figure out who's speaking almost without fail. Whereas in Henry VIII, I often couldn't distinguish one character's speeches from another's.

I'm not sure how profound this insight is but I enjoyed having it.
