didn t read this book specifically, but read most of his poetry and sonnets i like his works alot.
I expected to be a bit wow ed by this, in all honesty I also didn t really see the point of just taking parts of some of his plays out of context and providing them as separate Poems here Those sections are so much powerful in the context of the actual plays they stem from.
I can t review my favorite piece of literature of all time, so there.
Venus and Adonis hilarious and lyrical The Master in full flow.
This delightful little book was purchased at the Shakespeare co bookshop Anyway, this is by a group called Everyman s Library Pocket poets they do other title books such as Blake, Byron, Coleridge, Rossetti etc It contains most of Shakespeare s sonnets, extracts from longer poems, songs from the plays and soliloquies from plays also This is such a cute little book to own, with it s own gold ribbon bookmark to complete its look The content is easy to read and very enjoyable if you like Shakespeare and perhaps want to not read whole plays, just viewing famous extracts and some of Shakespeare s other praised works like his poems.
The poetical works of Shakespeare are two long narrative poems, 154 sonnets and a few random shorter pieces The narrative Poems have a habit of never saying something in a line that they could say in three, but even so The Rape of Lucrece is quite worth reading Because the sonnet is a fairly condensed form, I always thought 154 sonnets would be fairly easy to get through For the record, 154 is a lot of sonnets.
