For more than four centuries, cultural preferences, literary values, critical contexts, and personal tastes have governed readers’ responses to Shakespeare’s sonnets. Early private readers often considered these poems in light of the religious, political, and humanist values by which they lived. Other seventeenth- and eighteenth- century readers, such as stationers and editors, balanced. The sonnets here are given space to breathe: divided thematically and sparsely illustrated, the beautiful verse delivers its full impact.

sonnet Source: The Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms Author(s): Chris Baldick. A lyric poem comprising fourteen rhyming lines of equal length: iambic pentameters in English, alexandrines in French, hendecasyllables in Italian.   -xii-“And yet I live!” (Ed io pur vivo) What a pause is implied before these words with which the closing sestet of this sonnet begins! the drawing of a long breathy immeasurably long; like that vast interval of heart-beats which precedes Shakespeare’s ‘Since Cleopatra died.’I can think of no other passage in literature that has in it the same wide spaces of emotion.
