Synopsis

Shakespeare's sonnets are revered the world over for perfectly capturing the torments and joys of love, unrequited or otherwise, in just fourteen lines of iambic pentameter. Twenty-nine of the bard's most romantic sonnets are included in this beautiful hardcover, all of them lovingly illustrated by the talented Caitlin Keegan. Pretty and contemporary, the illustrations tastefully accentuate the depth of sentiment in each sonnet. A brilliant sun rises over the 17th Sonnet ('Shall I Compare thee to a summer's day?') and a graceful animal adorns the 19th Sonnet ('Devouring time, blunt thou the lion's paws'). Available just in time for Valentine's Day but appropriate for any spontaneous expression of love, this is an ideal, sophisticated gift for the legions of Shakespeare fans.
