Tom Hiddleston Reads Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18

Weekend poetry time…Shakespeare’s sonnets remind me of the school days when I had to read them for school and graduate school entrance exam. About sonnet 18, there is a memory about listening to a teacher explaining the whole sonnet in a splendid way and feeling totally marveled, but now I can’t remember anything he said. Nor can I understand what the sonnet is saying now. Probably I’m like some of Tom’s fans just paying attention to his voice rather than figuring out what the meaning is, but I do love listening to human voices: different voices, different “textures" of human voices you can say. That’s why I spend lots of time on YouTube just to listen.  Is there any career that can make money by just listening to people’s voices, please tell me.  Thank you!

週末來讀點詩吧。莎士比亞的十四行詩會讓我想到以前為了課業和研究所考試而讀的就學時光。關於第18首的個人回憶,就是我聽過一個老師在課堂上的精彩解析讓我覺得好厲害,不過現在我怎麼也想不起來他說過甚麼了。而且現在看著詩句,也不太清楚這內容到底在講甚麼了。可能,我也跟Tom的粉絲一樣都只注意他的聲音,完全不理會內容。不過我真的是滿喜歡聽各種不同質地的聲音的,所以我常常花很多時間在 YouTube上面聽。有甚麼工作可以只靠聽人家的聲音賺錢?想到的人可以跟我說。

Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st;
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

    1. 假如他是大學的英文老師我看~同學們的出席率應該會很高~樂評的確很不簡單,不過到了現在我會覺得評論文章其實沒有甚麼用途,除了網路點閱率以外,好像不太會有實質的效用

      1. 說得沒錯! 要選上他的課還得用搶的~ ^^

        我也這麼覺得ㄟ~ 評論類型的文章(至少) 對我沒有太大的作用… 樂評要寫得深入,鐵定要做非常多的功課。 樹立個人風格和公信力,多半變成許多評論的重點,音樂的本質被削弱了…

      2. 我會覺得評論者站的角度跟創作者不同,有時候給予的批評,可能顧及不到創作者所處的大環境等因素,做出這樣的批評也沒有甚麼效用。
