Publisher's summary

Savor the most celebrated love poems in the English language. Written almost 400 years ago, the sonnets of William Shakespeare are passionate and exalted, rich in imagery and alliteration, and full of mystery and intrigue.

This selection presents all 154 sonnets composed from 1593-1601. In words and rhyme, Shakespeare reveals his infatuation with the "Dark Lady", his relationship with a rival poet, and his private thoughts on love, death, beauty, and truth, timeless themes that span the centuries to touch our hearts.
