Devon Glover

The Sonnet Man

Discover Shakespeare in a whole new way as the Brooklyn-based teacher, poet and rapper performs the sonnets as hip-hop.

Devon inspires young people in schools, universities, and theatres across the US and in the UK, bringing the Bard’s poetry to life and ‘translating’ it to help understanding and make it relevant to today. He has appeared on BBC Radio 4, and Shakespeare Festivals throughout the world, and has rapped all 154 sonnets without stopping.

Age 12-18
