In honor of National Poetry Month, we’ve dug up a video featuring actor Ralph Fiennes reading William Shakespeare‘s “Sonnet 129.”

While many have come to know Fiennes for playing Harry Potter villain Lord Voldemort, he is also a respected stage actor. He won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Hamlet in the 1995 Broadway production.

Fiennes recorded this reading for the 2002 compilation album, “When Love Speaks – The Sonnets.” What’s your favorite Shakespearean sonnet?
