The only other collection of Sonnets I've read is Shakespeare's. One would think that any other would pale by comparison. But this is one impressive collection. A stand-out among all the poetry I've read. Flipping quickly through the book, you will see that the hands of a clock on the pages turn with each leaf, and with this accompanying image of time, you set out on journey into an uncommonly compelling world. In a way, I was reminded of Clark Ashton Smith's fantastic, imagistic poetry.

A full book of sonnets is pretty heavy reading for most people, including me. However, the quality of the writing is well above that of most poetry I am asked to review.
Recommended for students and lovers of serious poetry.
