Shakespeare Solos

When I heard Damian Lewis speak the lines of Antony at Caesar’s funeral, I immediately fell in love with Shakespeare again.

The Guardian’s video series “Shakespeare Solos” is magnificent. All of them performed by extraordinary actors, with voices so remarkable that I can only sit here and listen, hanging on every syllable dropping from their lips as if nothing in the world matters anymore — and never will again.

I love all of the performances, but Damian Lewis’ and Adrian Lester’s voices will ring in my ears for quite some time.
