THE COMPLETE SONNETS

by | Read by Peter Egan, Peter Orr, Bob Peck, Michael Williams

Poetry & Drama • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

The Complete Sonnets is a handy resource for lovers of these poems. Recorded in consecutive order, with each actor reading in shifts of one or two sonnets, this production really does let the poem, in this case, be the thing. There's not much introduction before each sonnet besides the announcement of the next number. While it's nice to hear different readers deliver the poems, the transitions are, on occasion, jarring; one just settles into the timbre of a voice only to have it suddenly altered. Overall, the collection is a great resource and would make an excellent gift for a Shakespeare fan. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
