really liked it
bookshelves: early-modern
Read from October 26 to 29, 2010

Just finished reading these again. I am quite a fan of his sonnets, and the English sonnet is perhaps my favorite form of poetry, after the epic. I think that his poems are very poignant, and that his couplets are very clever. There is, of course, much mystery about whom he is speaking in these verses. Many have tried to read a great amount of biography into these lines, but that is a reading I try to avoid. I am thinking of writing a research paper on either the sonnets or some of Shakespeare's narrative poetry. It would be a nice change from the dramatic works.
