    " The sonnets are, of course, gorgeous and incredible - that doesn't change no matter what edition you read.
    The annotations, however, do make a difference, and in the Arden sonnets they are excellent: "

    " my love is as a fever "

    " He really liked to use the word love. It is interesting how he says that fire rhymes with desire.

    A lot of references on performance and plays too.

    He probably doesn't care about food. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 2/21/2011

    " Nobody writes poetry like this anymore. (Except for that guy who tried to ask me out by writing me poetry like this, and I thought he was a freak, so maybe I should eat my own words.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/10/2011

    " Anyone who loves English literature needs to read a good, critical edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets (I suggest the edition edited by Stephen Booth). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 1/29/2011

    " A new literary project - to learn all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets by heart. Yes, it's both ridiculous and ambitious. And it's gonna take 3 years.

    Sonnets 18, 29, 116, 109, 87, 147, 94, 130, 129, 43 all in the bag.

    120 up next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph | 1/19/2011

    " The sonnets of William Shakespeare were inspiring, poetic, witty, and romantic. Four and a half stars. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
