The celebrity response to coronavirus has been a real mixed bag—lots of house tours, plenty of unsolicited songs, a soupçon of dangerous misinformation—but we’ve also seen some genuinely delightful cultural contributions. For instance, noted Shakespearean Sir Patrick Stewart’s pledge to recite all of Shakespeare’s sonnets, one each day, on his Instagram account.

Stewart started out with Sonnet 116 three days ago, and, “delighted by the response,” decided to undertake the full collection in order.


A celebrity freely offering some lovely, soothing cultural from squarely within his own lane? You love to see it.
