by Shakespeare William (Author). Every great poet in the English canon, from Shakespeare to T. S. Eliot, was given his own volume (HER own volume in Emily Dickinson's case): small, marvelously-crafted, irresistible volumes. One might think, for instance, that the volume at hand is merely a selection of Shakespeare's sonnets.

I'm a fan of the layout of Folger Shakespeare Library. The covers are also beautiful, but the play on the right, explanation of archaic terms on the left style is very helpful to the reader and makes getting into Shakespeare much easier.

The book of Sonnets is a great addition to any Shakespeare collection. Beautifully written by the master.

How would I describe the plot of this book, Amazon asks. It has no plot, it's a more-than-brilliant collection of poetry in sonnet form. Which of these words describes the mood? There are many moods -- playful, sexy, profound, intense, even, we are told, occasionally homophilic. I would say my mood was awestruck in the face of such literary genius. How would I describe the pace? Un-put-downable. How would I describe the characters? Given their full due and then some.

This economical edition puts a great work of art in hardcopy form for all to enjoy. Strong recommendation.

Since reviews for various editions of Shakespeare's sonnets are lumped together on Amazon, I'll begin by saying that I am reviewing Shakespeare's Sonnets (Folger Shakespeare Library) published on Aug.16, 2016, and selling today for $4.99, and I am reading it on my Kindle Keyboard. I am very, very pleased with this version! All the links work well, the font is clear and attractive, and the formatting is just fine.

When you go to the Table of Contents, you will see that the edition begins with the following commentary: the Editor's Preface; Shakespeare's Sonnets; Reading Shakespeare's Language: The Sonnets; Shakespeare's Life; An Introduction to the Text.

Then you will see the sonnets themselves: Text of the Poems With Commentary. Each sonnet can be accessed individually by an active link, and each has links throughout the text with annotations. I like being able to just click on a phrase or word as I am reading in order to access extremely helpful commentary.

After the individual sonnets, you will see the following listed: Two Sonnets from The Passionate Pilgrim; Longer Notes; Textual Notes; Appendix of Intertextual Material; Shakespeare's Sonnets: A Modern Perspective by Lynne Magnusson; Further Reading; Index of Illustrations (there are many, and each has an active link which will take you to it); Index of First Lines.

I looked at many versions on Amazon before making my selection. True, there are others which cost just one or two dollars, but they lack access to each individual sonnet and/or textual annotations. They don't have all the other interesting material included here. If you want to read the sonnets on your Kindle, you really can't do better than The Folger Shakespeare.

I'm an English PhD student, and even I have trouble with Shakespeare. His language is beautifully complex, and it can take me a long time to unpack what his characters are trying to say. I've cross-referenced "No Fear" on the SparkNotes website before for other Shakespeare plays, but it's been nice to have a hard copy in hand. I go from the original text on the left and then onto the "modern" text on the right as needed. In this way I'm able to understand Shakespeare without missing out on the richness of his language.

There are other publishers that make Shakespeare easier to read, providing original text against a more modern rendering. While those do a fair job, no one comes close (in my opinion) to capturing the ease and user-friendliness of SparkNotes.

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 is there, the sonnets, all for one to relish the words that ooze with their meaninsg. Wha is missing is the intrepretations....perhaps, the books intends to present the originals and origal as possible, leaving the meanigs and imagery to formed as the readers visualise. An excellent book indeed.

Shakespeare's sonnets are even more genius than time has given them credit. If I had to choose between Hamlet and The Sonnets.. it would be a very difficult choice. Shakespeare re-invented the sonnet, gave it a more mainstream structure. Each one tells a brief story, a super mini-play, an inner monologue, an ode to love, betrayal or wisdom, etc. I enjoy 21st century poetry from time to time, but this is the stuff you can sink your teeth into. I like the structure and its limits. Shakespeare takes complicated life experiences and explains them in 140 syllables and a catchy rhyme scheme. Modern poets enjoy making life sound even more complicated than it really is.

Every reader far and wide should read Shakespeare's Sonnets. Your IQ will rise before your eyes. You should also check out The Death Sonnets (Halloween Library Edition) which is a modern collection of spooky poetry written in the Shakespearean Sonnet structure.
