William Shakespeare’s Sonnets are the most beautiful example of love poetry ever written. With their uplifting spirit, coherence, intensity and dealing with the passing of age, of time, the evanescence of beauty offset by the permanence of true feelings, the Sonnets are a keystone of the English language literature. Composed at a time when “Sonnet craze” was rampant in England, the Sonnets, like many other Shakespearan works, raise as many questions as answers: W.H., the Fair Youth, the Dark Lady, were they to be publicised? Rediscover the Sonnets in this new edition by Les Éditions de Londres.
