Happy National Poetry Month!
To end the month, we’ve dug up a video featuring Alan Rickman and his recitation of William Shakespeare‘s “Sonnet 130.” While many have come to know Rickman for playing Harry Potter potions master Severus Snape, he is also a respected stage actor.
Shakespeare wrote this piece in iambic pentameter and it follows the the AB-AB/CD-CD/EF-EF/GG rhyme scheme. What’s your favorite sonnet?
