How Should Shakespeare Really Sound?

Audio: The British Library have released the first audio guide to how Shakespeare's plays would have sounded in the original pronunciation. 

Inspired by working with Kevin Spacey, Sir Trevor Nunn has claimed that American accents are "closer" than contemporary English to the accents of those used in the Bard's day. Others say that the speech of Elizabethans was also much quicker than it is in modern day Shakespeare productions.

Well, now you can judge for yourself!
