Shakespeare's Sonnets

Shakespeare's Sonnets

T.S. Eliot once wrote that, "Shakespeare gives the greatest width of human passion," and it is this passion that has traditionally made The Sonnets appealing to literati and laymen alike. Surrounded by mystery, these poems of devotion and jealousy, of a young courtier and a Dark Lady, have been the subject of endless speculation. They are highly mystical and at the same ti T.S.

    Shakespeare has almost become synonymous to drama, we all know the fact. However, the lyrical quality that he was born with (even his life was lyrical, wasn't it?) bestowed immense poetry to his plays and perhaps, those plays led to the sonnets we are singing even today. Is there any s...

    I really haven't read Shakespeare's sonnets in any consistent way since high school (where I read less than twenty and memorized two). It was fascinating to read all 154 from first to last as a whole connected work. One really gets a sense that English is a tool which almost all of us ...

    Over my years of teaching, I have memorized a couple dozen of these sonnets, on my morning walks. Some I learned in a two-mile walk, like the one on his own writing, "Why is my verse so barren of new pride?"(76). Others I have had to re-memorize every time I teach it, like "Some glor...

    As I have been writing sonnets lately, I decided to re-read the works of the genius, the master, of the sonnet form. I was intrigued to understand how Shakespeare suffered in writing his sonnets as a young man not yet established as a dramatist. He was writing under the patronage of a ...

    Shall I compare thee to a Summers day? Thou art more louely and more temperate: Rough windes do shake the darling buds of Maie, And Sommers lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heauen shines, And often is his gold complexion dimm?d, And euery faire...

    Beautiful I loved this. Read and listened to these poems. I'm glad they are on my Kindle so I can go back to them anytime, both the favorites I've highlighted, and also to those I didn't completely understand. ...

    ¿Qué lector de poesía no ha pensado alguna vez en los Sonetos de William Shakespeare ?esos monólogos de melancolía, celos o traición?, como la máxima expresión del amor? El misterio que rodea la dedicatoria al enigmático ?Mr H.W.?, o los versos a la extraña ?Dark La...

    Truthfully I don't think any other poetry will move me as much as these Sonnets. They cover various topics, as it were, and all are just filled with such raw emotion. ...

    I think the sonnets need to be understood as a sequence. Even if they start unpromisingly and end with a whimper. Perhaps this is part of his subversion of the sonnet tradition? Katherine Duncan-Jones in her edition for Arden, and Joseph Pequigney in Such Is My Love: A Study of...

    Two passions dwell in poet's heart Two desperate obsessions are reflected through his art Those are two characters from Shakespeare's poetry triangle: The dark skinned lady and the man of fair skin His charm is gentle and she's a striking beauty queen Three lives, three loves in ...

    I'm not sure how many times I've read my way through this book, but I never tire of it. Some of these sonnets are so beautiful.....moving and thought provoking, much loved favourites which I read often. Others I like and enjoy, but which don't have the same effect on me...... .........

    Una edición magnífica y una interpretación sencilla que mantiene la poesía en una suerte de estado natural mientras relata esa historia apasionada de dos amores, que va pasando por cada estadío. http://entremontonesdelibros.blogspot... ...

    How can anyone possibly not love these exquisite sonnets. I've just been reading Dolors' excellent review and it reminded me of them. ...

    I really haven't read Shakespeare's sonnets in any consistent way since high school (where I read less than twenty and memorized two). It was fascinating to read all 154 from first to last as a whole connected work. One really gets a sense that English is a tool which almost all of us ...

    Over my years of teaching, I have memorized a couple dozen of these sonnets, on my morning walks. Some I learned in a two-mile walk, like the one on his own writing, "Why is my verse so barren of new pride?"(76). Others I have had to re-memorize every time I teach it, like "Some glor...

    Shakespeare has almost become synonymous to drama, we all know the fact. However, the lyrical quality that he was born with (even his life was lyrical, wasn't it?) bestowed immense poetry to his plays and perhaps, those plays led to the sonnets we are singing even today. Is there any s...

    I think the sonnets need to be understood as a sequence. Even if they start unpromisingly and end with a whimper. Perhaps this is part of his subversion of the sonnet tradition? Katherine Duncan-Jones in her edition for Arden, and Joseph Pequigney in Such Is My Love: A Study of...

    Book Review William Shakespeare wrote hundreds of sonnets over three decades, mostly from the 1580s through 1610. I'm assuming most everyone has read a few of his sonnets, given they are usually required reading in high school. There is something to love in every single one of the...

    Shakespeare has almost become synonymous to drama, we all know the fact. However, the lyrical quality that he was born with (even his life was lyrical, wasn't it?) bestowed immense poetry to his plays and perhaps, those plays led to the sonnets we are singing even today. Is there any s...

    I really haven't read Shakespeare's sonnets in any consistent way since high school (where I read less than twenty and memorized two). It was fascinating to read all 154 from first to last as a whole connected work. One really gets a sense that English is a tool which almost all of us ...

    4/5 Stars Shakespeare has some wonderful poems, he really does. They're even better than his plays, in my opinion. However, quite unfortunately, some of them are really difficult to understand. So even though I appreciate his expertly/tightly written poems, I didn't appreciate how I...

    Over my years of teaching, I have memorized a couple dozen of these sonnets, on my morning walks. Some I learned in a two-mile walk, like the one on his own writing, "Why is my verse so barren of new pride?"(76). Others I have had to re-memorize every time I teach it, like "Some glor...

    I?ve been wondering for a while how to approach this review. I had thought that it might be interesting to do a close reading of a single sonnet and leave it at that. What I?ve decided is to write a quick review on this edition of The Sonnets, mostly chatting about the stuff this b...

    Beautiful I loved this. Read and listened to these poems. I'm glad they are on my Kindle so I can go back to them anytime, both the favorites I've highlighted, and also to those I didn't completely understand. ...

    ¿Qué lector de poesía no ha pensado alguna vez en los Sonetos de William Shakespeare ?esos monólogos de melancolía, celos o traición?, como la máxima expresión del amor? El misterio que rodea la dedicatoria al enigmático ?Mr H.W.?, o los versos a la extraña ?Dark La...

    Truthfully I don't think any other poetry will move me as much as these Sonnets. They cover various topics, as it were, and all are just filled with such raw emotion. ...

    I think the sonnets need to be understood as a sequence. Even if they start unpromisingly and end with a whimper. Perhaps this is part of his subversion of the sonnet tradition? Katherine Duncan-Jones in her edition for Arden, and Joseph Pequigney in Such Is My Love: A Study of...

    Two passions dwell in poet's heart Two desperate obsessions are reflected through his art Those are two characters from Shakespeare's poetry triangle: The dark skinned lady and the man of fair skin His charm is gentle and she's a striking beauty queen Three lives, three loves in ...

    I'm not sure how many times I've read my way through this book, but I never tire of it. Some of these sonnets are so beautiful.....moving and thought provoking, much loved favourites which I read often. Others I like and enjoy, but which don't have the same effect on me...... .........

    Una edición magnífica y una interpretación sencilla que mantiene la poesía en una suerte de estado natural mientras relata esa historia apasionada de dos amores, que va pasando por cada estadío. http://entremontonesdelibros.blogspot... ...

    How can anyone possibly not love these exquisite sonnets. I've just been reading Dolors' excellent review and it reminded me of them. ...
