From Shakespeare – With Love: The Best of the Sonnets, by William Shakespeare

Poetry is one form of literature that is never so beautiful on the printed page as it is when spoken. It is written for the ear, not the eye and Shakespeare’s sonnets are no exception.

A perfect cast for a beautiful collection. Each of the voice actors in this performance do a splendid job – each piece is perfect. I do have a great weakness for the delightful accent of David Tennant, and Juliet Stevenson is another of my favourite audio performers. In all, it makes for an “eargasmic” listening experience. This really is the perfect package.

Narrators:  David Tennant, Juliet Stevenson, Anton Lesser, Maxine Peake, Stella Gonet, Bertie Carvel and Alex Jennings.
