Product Overview

Shakespeare's sonnets and poems are perhaps the most precious words of poetry in English. With the finest lines ever written about love and desire, they have shaped the way emotions are expressed. This edition of sonnets and poems includes the narrative poems "Venus and Adonis" and "The Rape of Lucrece," which established Shakespeare's reputation when they appeared in 1593 and 1594. Next is the short poem "The Phoenix and the Turtle," which?appeared alongside the work of others in the 1601 collection?Love's Martyr. The sonnets, all included here,?were published in 1609, as was the last poem, "A Lover's Complaint." The?dazzling cover design is by White's Books' own David Pearson,?one of?"Britain's?Top 50 Designers" as selected by the?Guardian.
