Beschreibung von Audible

William Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets on subjects ranging from love and beauty to time and mortality, and this audiobook presents them all, narrated with empathy and brio by Royal Shakespeare Company actor Alex Jennings. Groundbreaking and unusual at the time they were published, Shakespeare's sonnets are still thought-provoking today, with many lines that are oft-referenced in modern literature and popular culture, from "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day" in Sonnet 18, to "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun" in Sonnet 130. With their rolling cadence and dramatic subjects, these poems are at their best when performed live, as this compelling recording more than proves.

Inhaltsangabe

Everyone knows something of Shakespeare's sonnets, even if only in memorable fragments like "the darling buds of May," or "remembrance of things past," or "the marriage of true minds." For centuries these wonderfully crafted, intense lyrics have stood for something valued about youth, love, and the emotional complexities belonging to that time of life. This new recording presents all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets, using the New Cambridge Shakespeare texts.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Qualified recommendation

It is wonderful to have the complete sonnets available as an audio book. The recitation lets the poetry speak for itself without any superfluous adornment. However, it might be felt by some to be somewhat lacking in liveliness. I would give it four stars.However, I do have some quibbles. First, I find the lute interplays unnecessary. Furthermore, neither the composer (Dowland?) nor artist are identified. That makes for one star less.More important, the usefulness of the book is severely limited by there not being a track index (at least not in WMP 11). This makes it impossible to listen to specific sonnets. On my portable player (a Cowon D2) even the section navigation is not available. For this I must subtract another star.
