THE SONNETS

by | Read by Sir John Gielgud

Poetry & Drama • 1.5 • Anthology • ©

Rich in melody and wordplay, Shakespeare's sonnets are, of all his work, the best-suited to audio production--while also the most demanding in vocal delivery and interpretation. Woven through the sonnets, though in no organized or consecutive manner, is the most amazing personal story, a love triangle that's funny, shocking and weird--baring, or seeming to, the author's most intimate secrets. John Gielgud's slightly abridged two-CD WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE: THE SONNETS, recorded for Caedmon in 1963, is still a standard, and an excellent choice for students.
