Shakespeare’s Sonnets

October 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


So many mysteries surround Shakespeare’s Sonnets. Who published them and why? Did Shakespeare approve the ordering? Who is the handsome young boy, the rival poet, and the Dark Lady? Shakespeare’s sonnet sequence is considered the greatest group of poems ever written but they have also created some of literature’s great mysteries. Dr. Calendar will discuss the history of sonnets which led to Shakespeare’s, what we know or speculate about the sonnets themselves, their radical use of the sonnet form, and why they are some of the most magnificent poems in the English language. 2 SESSIONS
