So long lives this - and this gives life to thee

Thanks to metafilter I found some great youtube home-made videos of ordinary people reading Shakespearean sonnets.

An American guy with a grey beard reading #38 'How can my Muse want subject to invent?' 'to cheer up a friend who was feeling down'

A nice old lady reading #22 'My glass shall not persuade me I am old'

'Mikey' reading #116 'Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds' (quite falteringly) and 'Mary' reading it much better.

A young woman with a lovely accent that I am afraid I can't place reads #18 'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day'

And a professional: Alan Rickman does #130 'My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun'
