Commentary/ Review by our Reader:

"I chose a selection of my favourite Shakespeare Sonnets to read in my garden for you. I thoroughly enjoyed studying them at high school - for my creative writing folio, I was tasked with writing my own sonnet too! I was hoping to find it for this video, but alas, I have not been able to as of yet.

I also studied sonnets during my two years at acting school, learning RP (Received Pronunciation) English and working on a dramatisation of Sonnet 141 for my final exam."
