Product Description

The bard's sonnets read by a leading actor of stage and screen Simon Callow.

Savor the most celebrated love poems in the English language. Written almost 400 years ago, the sonnets of William Shakespeare are passionate and exalted, rich in imagery and alliteration, and full of mystery and intrigue. In words and rhyme, he reveals his infatuation with the “Dark Lady,” his relationship with a rival poet, and his private thoughts on love, death, beauty, and truth: timeless themes that span the centuries to touch our hearts today.


“Simon Callow conveys the dramatic potential not often recognizable in other recordings.”
