Looking to impress someone? Whether it's your significant other, a colleague, or someone at a party, arm yourself with this Vook today. Ten of Shakespeare’s timeless sonnets are enhanced with passionate, funny, and deeply moving videos of real people. Experience The Bard's words like never before. (And if Shakespeare usually makes you snore, this Vook is DEFINITELY for you!)

Watch as Shakespeare's words hit the streets of New York. Everyday folks riff on the mysteries of love, the pain and the pleasure, the lust and the loss, sharing their feelings while they try to decipher the finer points of Shakespeare’s vision of the heart.

The text comes from the original book, Shakespeare's Sonnets, which first appeared in 1609. Critics long praised the 14-line poems as profound meditations on the nature of love, sexual passion, procreation and time. Explore the mysteries of the heart with this fun and touching new Vook. Read the poems, watch the videos, and figure out exactly why these touching words are so powerful and so deeply affecting to this day.

"One of the best examples of new-form publishing I’ve seen. For me, the visual experience gives a whole new dimension to understanding and appreciating these perfect gems in verse..."
