Shakespeare's timeless sonnets, which describe love in all its aspects, represent one of the finest bodies of poetry ever penned. They include the star-struck Sonnet 18 ("Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"), the witty Sonnet 103 ("My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun"), the despairing yet hopeful Sonnet 29 ("When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state"), and more. As read by the legendary Sir John Gielgud - perhaps the greatest contemporary interpreter of the Bard - the sonnets in this selection come alive with all the passion and profound human insight of their brilliant creator.
