Shakespeare's sonnets are revered the world over for perfectly capturing the torments and joys of
love requited or otherwise in just fourteen lines of iambic pentameter. This treasure of a book
collects 29 of the bard's most romantic sonnets, each one 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 ).
Appropriate for any spontaneous expression of love, this is an ideal, sophisticated gift for the legions
of Shakespeare fans.
