Alastair FowlerThe rapid adumbration of Shakespeare's variety is as brilliant as anything Vendler has written. But in commening on each individual sonnet in turn, she surpasses herself, again and again making fresh observation familiar. In almost any other critic this would be a tour de force. But in her it is simply honest empiricism, free from any agenda but that of being receptive.
