    " I'm a poet, so Shakespeare's sonnets never fail to impress me. Knowing the history of the Petrarchan sonnet, it's amazing how he took this form and made it his own. His word choices and imagery are gorgeous, and his subjects are timeless. Shakespeare's poetry ranges from love and adoration to death and poverty. I can honestly say that his form and style have influenced my own poetry in so many ways, and even inspires me. "

    " Only the redundancy of the subject matter in these poems prevents me from giving them the 5 stars they would otherwise deserve. Individually, each sonnet is an unbelievable gem, but as a whole their message is oftentimes redundant and this proves quite frustrating at times. If only Shakespeare had expended his efforts on a greater diversity of subject matter! "

    " Very good. Really relevant to today. Must check out Sonnets 18 and 19. "

    " One never "finishes reading" Shakespeare. One only revisits his works as often as possible. "
