Synopses & Reviews
This gift edtion is a small format hardcover, almost diary-like with a sewn-in book ribbon and a bookplate page featuring Shakespeares most-quoted sonnets, some of the most beautiful and moving poems in English literature. Dealing with love, beauty and the effects of time, Shakespeares evocative words such as “Shall I compare theee to a summers day?” speak to us as directly now as to Elizabethan readers centuries ago. The Arden Shakespeare is the most authoritative texts and this edtion is a must-have for all lovers of great literature.
