Overview

Sonnets by William Shakespeare, Sir John Gielgud

Every bit as dazzling as the best of his dramas and comedies, Shakespeare's sonnets represent one of finest bodies of poetry ever penned. And because they are love poems of an extraordinarily personal variety, these timeless sonnets also afford us our most intimate glimpses of the soul behind the genius that was Shakespeare. As read by the legendary Sir John Gielgud — perhaps the greatest interpreter of the Bard we shall ever know — the sonnets in this selection come alive with all the passion and profound human insight of their brilliant creator.

About the Author

William Shakespeare is the world's greatest ever playwright. Born in 1564, he split his time between Stratford-upon-Avon and London, where he worked as a playwright, poet and actor. In 1582 he married Anne Hathaway. Shakespeare died in 1616 at the age of fifty-two, leaving three children—Susanna, Hamnet and Judith. The rest is silence.

I absolutely adore Shakespeare's work, and was anxious to obtain a collection of the Sonnets. I have not finished the book yet, but so far am terribly pleased, and enjoying analyzing and thinking over the meaning of each unrequited love story, and every tragic poem. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and look forward to my next trip to Barnes & Noble for more!!!
