The Sonnets: The Pelican Shakespeare

Overview

Here is an elegant and clear text for either the study or the rehearsal room, notes where you need them and the distinguished scholarship of the general editors, Stephen Orgel and A. R.

The Sonnets

135

WHo ever hath her wifh, thou haft thy will,
And Will too boote,and Will in oucr-plus,
More then enough am i that vexe thee ftill,
To thv sweet will making addition thus.
Wilt thou whofe will is large and spatious,
Not once vouchfafe to hide my will in thine,
Shall will in others feeme right gracious,
And in my will no faire acceptance shine:
The sea all water, yet receiues raine still,
And in aboundance addeth to his store,
So thou beeing rich in Will adde to thy Will,
One will ofrcine to make thy large Will more.
Let no vakinde, no faire beseechers kill,
Thinke all but one, and me in that one Will.

 

 

 

The playfully autobiographical (and wittily obscene) Sonnet 135 in its original form in the 1609 quarto, a good example of the ambiguities of early modern typography.
