I recommend a delightful Naxos CD, From Shakespeare - with love, a Best of the Sonnets compilation read by Juliet Stevenson, David Tennant, Anton Lesser and others. Robert McCrum, The Observer
Shakespeare's "Sonnets", one of the most remarkable collections of poetry, was first published in 1609, 400 years ago by Mr Thomas Thorpe. Naxos AudioBooks marks the occasion with a selection of 80 of the finest, read by leading actors. The selection includes famous ones such as "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day" as well as lesser well-known sonnets though of equally fine stature.
