Shakespeare: The Sonnets
Shakespeare's importance in the history of English literature, particularly poetry, cannot be underestimated. Indeed, this entire style of sonnet has come to be known as "Shakespearean" after him, since he was such an undisputed master of it. This series of 10X sonnets is widely regarded as the perfection of the form. Here reproduced in their original spelling (with a few minor exceptions detailed in the text), Shakespeare's sonnets are exposed and enjoyed in their full original vigor and vitality. No lover of English or poetry can do without reading them at least once. ages. 79 pp., index of first lines, English. Purchase in Print | PDF (free) | HTML (free).
