Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

William Shakespeare’s sonnets were originally published in 1609 by Thomas Thorpe and dedicated to ‘Mr W. H.’ The 154 sonnets probably date from the mid-1590s. In 1598 the clergyman Francis Meres wrote that ‘the sweete wittie soule of Ouid liues in mellifluous and hony-toungued Shakespeare, witness [. . .] his sugred Sonnets among his private friends,’ but these poems may not refer to the sonnets with which we are familiar.

Unlike other ebook editions, which are merely copies of existing print editions, this edition has been completely reformatted for optimal reading on an electronic reader.
The text of this ebook is based on the editions of Shakespeare’s sonnets edited by C. C. Stopes, W. J. Rolfe, and Israel Gollancz.
We have attempted to limit each page to ten lines (however this is dictated by the length of the notes). Where possible notes are provided on the same page as the verse they refer to. This is to facilitate ease of reference, and is unique to this edition. Notes are indicated by a bracketed letter: eg [a]. The footnotes include omitted or additional text, together with material useful to the general reader.
For each sonnet we provide
•the modern, footnoted, version
•the unfootnoted sonnet on a single page
•links to the quarto 1 (1609) together with related poems (eg the Passionate Pilgrim versions of sonnets 138 and 144).

Unlike most other texts, when providing excerpts from secondary material (including Shakespeare's plays) we always indicate the character speaking the excerpted lines, together with information to help the reader establish context (for example we indicate where the character may be reading; or, if the quotation occurs in an answer to a question we include the question being asked).

The sonnets can be divided into three main sequences: the first and longest sequence is that of the ‘Fair Youth.’ In this sequence the poet urges a young man to marry and procreate, and it also includes the poet’s contemplation of loss of the beloved fair youth when he travels away from the other man. This sequence also includes a contemplation of the youth’s infidelities, and an eventual reconciliation between the poet and the youth. The second, shorter sequence, is that of the ‘Dark Lady.’ In this sequence the poet subverts conventions employed by contemporary sonneteers. It is clear from this group that despite uncertainty about the dark lady the poet cannot overcome his passion for her. There are hints that the fair youth (or another man) and the dark lady have had an affair. The final sequence, consisting of just two sonnets, is based on the Palantine Anthology Fable.

Livre épais et difficile à lire. Les poèmes sont beaux, mais le vieil anglais n'est pas toujours facile à comprendre. Il faut s’accrocher.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A full engagement of the sonnets 3 septembre 2013
Par M. Atkinson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The sonnets are annotated with grace, precision and completeness here. Virtually every puzzle (or potential quibble) is commented upon in the rich notes facing each sonnet, and if there are ambiguities, they are allowed to flourish, rather than being settled. So there's plenty left for the reader to do, deciding which way to tilt the reading, and great enjoyment to be had. Smart, comprehensive, and readable (though it's true that to speak of its being readable in the most literal sense requires me to squint while reading the notes in anything but bright light). This is the indispensable collection of Shakespeare's Sonnets for a reader interested in savoring their incredible richness.

It's good
By the way, the book cover is different from the picture shown, but it's still good I think.

One cannot really "listen" to the Sonnets unless one has a copy of the text to follow along. It would have been easier to have different speakers reading various Sonnets than to have one voice-- though a good voice at that, move through one Sonnet to the next. The Sonnets are too intimate to read before a mob!

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my son's English teacher (he also moderates the Shakespeare Club). He loved, loved, loved it. I would recommend for any lover of Shakespeare.
