have a little Shakespeare to occupy your time

The Guardian has commissioned 25 noted actors to perform solo speeches, most of them pretty famous, from Shakespeare plays, in their indoor voices. You can watch them all - most are about 2 minutes long - here.

I give particular honors to Damian Lewis in the first part of Antony's funeral oration for Caesar, and Joanna Lumley, oh yes, in the scene where Viola figures out that Olivia is in love with her.
