Overview

Shakespeare's Sonnets are among the most fascinating poems in the English language. They are central to an understanding of his life and work as both poet and poetic dramatist. Yet many myths and superstitions have arisen around them. This book challenges assumptions and encourages fresh readings of these poems. Edmondson and Wells consider the Sonnets both as individual works and in relation to each other. A feature of the book is its survey of the Sonnets' reputation, their appropriation by other creative writers, and their status and potential as texts to be performed.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shakespeare is again the hottest ticket in town: he has been voted the person of the millennium in Great Britain, while an Oscar-nominated film about his love life is burning up box offices. Along with being the world's greatest playwright, his unparalleled genius for rhyme and meter make him also one of the greatest poets, evidenced by the 154 sonnets he penned throughout his life. This beautiful hardcover offers them all, with illustrations and an index of first lines. A real top-shelf edition.
From Barnes & Noble
This lovely little volume contains all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets, all strikingly beautiful poetry that was written throughout the Bard's life. Each sonnet is presented on its own page with a surrounding leaf design, so the sonnets stand on their own as individual works. Love, betrayal, despair, commitment, regret, spirituality, life, and death are explored in this eloquent poems penned by the greatest playwright and poet in the English language. Contains an index of first lines. 5" x 7 1/2".
