This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.

Shakespeare's sonnets are love poems that explore the joy, the pain, the regret, and the transience of this most volatile of human sentiments. Readers will find that the sonnets mirror their own romantic experiences, as Shakespeare gives words to the feelings we have all felt at one time or another. First published in 1609, the sonnets still evoke romance and passion.
