A great rendition of “Full Fathom Five”

I’m linking here to poet John Siddique’s Youtube channel — he has posted a great interpretation below of the “Full Fathom Five” section of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.”  (The oft-quoted lines actually comprise the second half of “Ariel’s Song” in Act I., Scene II.)

The softer reading here gives the poem a more muted feel, and the shooting location is terrific.  (Man, that shoreline would be perfect for Matthew Arnold’s “Dover Beach,” wouldn’t it?)
