Sir Patrick Stewart has been reading, simply and with charm, a Sonnet of Shakespeare every day. He is up to S. 120.
One of you readers challenged me to do the same. Since I’ve known the Bard’s poetry, man and boy, I thought I would take the gauntlet up.
This entry marks a milestone, the first “series” of the Sonnets, the so-called “Procreation Sonnets” hereby conclude. We will continue with the “Fair Youth” Sonnets and eventually get to the “Dark Lady” Sonnets. There’s a lot of human experience, good and bad, coming up.
Today, however, here is Sonnet 17, with a brief homage to Sir Patrick.
