Sonnet 29 is a perfect example of why these poems are really not for schoolchildren When in disgrace with fortune and men s eyes I all alone beweep my outcast state Of course a teenager beweeps plenty and likely feels outcast often enough, but there is something very adult about the weary despair in the first two quatrains of this sonnet.
I thought they were quite pretty, back when I was a lit major in college Now I find them entirely devastating, and contemplate which ones I d read at whose funeral.
Currently, Goodreads has granted this volume four and a half stars My dear Goodreaders if you will give four and a half stars to the sonnets of William Shakespeare, what are you out there giving five stars to Always love these Arden editions.
I love Shakespeare, especially his sonnets But between the long winded and confusing introduction and the printing of the book in general, I did not enjoy this reread as much as I had expected I prefer Barnes and Noble s clear and to the point printing of the Sonnets As for the lover s complaint, I guess I ll just find a seperate printing In regards to the sonnets themselves, I couldn t love themAs I am not scholar, I dont entirely understand the exact meaning of each and every sonnet But I love the imagery the sonnets have the beauty of clear, fresh water As I read them, I can feel forest ground beneath my feet and roses bluming in my heart.
Inner note Do NOT ever read again Shakespeare s sonnets in Spanish.
These stunningly beautiful poems delineate love, time, beauty and lust in the darkest, rawest, most fluid nature Its fair to say the Bard has officially won my heart.
Some favourites include sonnets 17, 18, 27, 49, 54, 55, 60, 93, 99, 130, 139, 147, 152.
I loved reading the sonnets as they can only be described as being completely magical Shakespeare s ability to captivate even the simplest human emotion in such a delicately woven spider web of words almost seems unearthly at times My favorite sonnet will always be sonnet 29 When in disgrace with Fortune and men s eyes,I all alone beweep my outcast state,And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,And look upon myself and curse my fate,Wishing me like to onerich in hope,Featured like him, like him with friends possess d,Des William Shakespeare Is A Global Icon For His Plays Such As Hamlet, Macbeth And Romeo And Juliet, But His Poetic Meditations On Love Are Among The Most Powerful And Evocative Poems Ever Written This Penguin Classics Edition Of Sonnets And A Lover S Complaint Is Edited By John Kerrigan Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer S Day The Language Of Shakespeare S Sonnets Has Become Inseparable From The Language Of Love In English But The Force And Tenderness Of These Poems Is Undiminished By Age When This Volume Of Shakespeare S Poems First Appeared In , He Had Already Written Most Of The Great Plays That Made Him Famous TheSonnets All But Two Of Which Are Addressed To A Beautiful Young Man, Mr WH , Or A Treacherous Dark Lady Contain Some Of The Most Exquisite And Haunting Poetry Ever Written, And Deal With Eternal Subjects Such As Love And Infidelity, Memory And Mortality, And The Destruction Wreaked By Time Also Included Is A Lover S Complaint, originally Published With The Sonnets, In Which A Young Woman Is Overheard Lamenting Her Betrayal By A Heartless SeducerIn His Illuminating Introduction, John Kerrigan Examines How The Sonnets Are Intertwined, The Ways In Which These Works Have Been Interpreted And The Themes Running Through Them This Edition Also Includes Further Reading, Commentaries On Each Poem, A Textual History, Variant And Further Sonnets And An Index Of First LinesIf You Enjoyed Sonnets And A Lover S Complaint, You Might Like John Milton S Paradise Lost, Also Available In Penguin Classics Shakespeare Led A Life Of Allegory His Works Are The Comments On It John Keats This book is a perfect example of how I ve been using the ratings system Everyone everywhere is agreed that the Sonnets are some of the best literature ever created Thus its rating should be off the charts it should take a small constellation of stars And yet, the little stars themselves talk about not how intrinsically good the material is, but how much the reader enjoyed it, thus making the rating system subjective rather than objective This is acceptable, in that it is the job of English departments to argue about some hypothetical objective rating system, but does get me unhappy when I necessarily give something eminently wonderful less than five stars The sonnets eminently wonderful But they are a chore Not the easiest pleasure reading, to be sure I should, by all rights, memorize about six of them.
