Devon Glover is "The Sonnet Man"

Featured artist Devon Glover, a modern-day Sonnet Man, delivers Shakespeare’s sonnets as originally written, and then breaks them down brilliantly into his own original Hip Hop lyrics and song. Mr. Glover’s flow embodies the richness of Shakespeare’s language, and his passionate, yet natural delivery offers an inspiring, creative experience audiences love.

“Brooklyn-reared Devon Glover has turned his fascination with the rhythms of hip-hop and Shakespeare into a career as The Sonnet Man. The artist adapts Shakespeare’s text through his own original hip-hop lyrics. His spoken, sometimes improvised, riffs replace Elizabethan English with modern urban vernacular—His niche as an African American rapper-cum-ambassador for Shakespeare represents the very inclusivity he hopes to bring to classical theater.” ~ Leo Adam Biga, Humanities Magazine*

Born and raised along with two brothers by a single mom in Brooklyn, Glover has strived all his life to make something of himself and to give back. He went through the New York City Public School system and is a graduate of Ithaca College. Mr. Glover teaches and conducts workshops/performances in Harlem, Queens and Brooklyn. He performed The Sonnet Man in Negril, Jamaica by special invitation from the Board of Education in the Soul Rebellion Hip Hop Festival and tours nationally.
