Shakespeare's Sonnets (version 4)

Gelesen von Elizabeth Klett

(4,812 Sterne; 8 Bewertungen)

Shakespeare's sequence of 154 sonnets deals with such themes as love, time, death, immortality, lust, and sex. The poems follow but also depart from the Petrarchan tradition of sonnets written by a frustrated male lover to an unattainable idealized female beloved. Shakespeare's sonnets are addressed to both male and female lovers: the androgynous "young man" and the alluring yet dangerously sexual "dark lady." (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

Masterfully reading a master.

(5 Sterne)

Your voice control is something to be praised. I believe the art of speaking is a much under appreciated art, as poetry is a much under appreciated art. You have done both them very fine justice in your most lovely reading of The Sonnets. Master Shakespeare would be highly impressed had there been a librivox app in his lifetime.--Look for my sonnets one day, Ms. (or Mrs.) Klett. My pen name is Vincent Young.

amazing!
