This study discusses the meaning of Shakespeare's sonnets in the context of their whole sequence, a series of idylls revealing a grand scene, rather like an accumulation of musical variations on a larger theme. In addition to the analytical discussion of the structure of the sonnets, this book presents the 154 sonnets newly edited for the modern reader in tandem with the original printed version published by Thomas D. in 1609. On the page facing each of the sonnets is a thorough analysis discussing it as a single poem and as part of the whole sequence.
