Shakespeare Project Posts All Shakespeare Sonnets to YouTube

It is no doubt providential that William Shakespeare was born and died on April 23, the Feast of Saint George, patron of England.  And what better day could there be to explore some of the work of our language's preeminent poet and playwright?  Those who love the work of William Shakespeare will be delighted to know that all 154 of his sonnets, along with many of the great soliloquies, have been beautifully read and posted to YouTube by Mr. Bertram Selwyn.

Mr. Selwyn began his Shakespeare Project in October 2007 and finished in June 2009.  The Sonnets of William Shakespeare are available on Mr. Selwyn's YouTube Channel.  His readings and recordings are a great work of love and a treasure trove for all English-speaking people.

The sonnets are also available (free) in podcast format through i-tunes.
