The 154 sonnets of William Shakespeare contain some of the best-known, most-quoted lines in the English language. This collection brings dozens of those immortal poems to vivid life. Included here are: Numbers 18 (Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?), 130 (My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun), 147 (My love is as a fever), 151 (Love is too young to know what conscience is), and many more. Almost everything about the sonnets is controversial: the identity of the recipients, the young man and the Dark Lady, the dates the sonnets were written - and some even question if they were indeed written by the Bard. But their beauty and eloquence are beyond reproach. Download and start listening now!

    " The sonnets are, of course, gorgeous and incredible - that doesn't change no matter what edition you read.
    The annotations, however, do make a difference, and in the Arden sonnets they are excellent: "
