Rich in melody and wordplay, Shakespeare's sonnets are, of all his work, the best-suited to audio production - while also the most demanding in vocal delivery and interpretation. Woven through the sonnets, though in no organized or consecutive manner, is the most amazing personal story, a love triangle that's funny, shocking and weird - baring, or seeming to, the author's most intimate secrets. Helpful for those who stumble over arcane or changed word meanings is this selection of 60 sonnets with "footnotes," read by Frank Muller.
(P) Recorded Books, Inc.
I enjoyed this recording many times when I got it from my local library on cassette, so I was eager to get it on Audible. Unfortunately, the digital conversion of this title is very poor, with low gain levels and compression problems that cause much of the speech to sound slurred. I would encourage audible to get a better master from Recorded Books and re-record these classic masterpieces read by the late Frank Muller.
