Savor Shakespeare's sonnets with Patrick Stewart

Need some quality poetry to help you through these difficult times? Sir Patrick Stewart has been reading a Shakespeare sonnet a day on Twitter and Instagram.


Beautiful!!! So wonderful to hear 18 read by Patrick Stewart! Lovely.

My favorite sonnet is #73. I fell in love with the language and the imagery when I was a young woman. Now I’m in my “sunset years,” and it’s acquired a whole new resonance. Hearing Patrick Stewart read a sonnet a day has given me something wonderful to look forward to.
