Summary

'Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?' Shakespeare's Sonnets are universally loved and much-quoted throughout the world, while debates still rage as to the identity of the Dark Lady and how autobiographical the sonnets really are. First published in 1997 to much critical acclaim, the edition has been a consistent best-seller in the Arden Shakespeare series. Katherine Duncan Jones tackles the controversies and mysteries surrounding these beautiful poems head on, and explores the issues of sexuality to be found in them, making this a truly modern edition for today's readers and students. This revised edition has been up-dated and corrected in the light of new scholarship and critical thinking since its first publication. Edited and annotated to the rigourous scholarly standards of all Arden editions and with a wealth of helpful and incisive commentary, this is the finest edition of the Sonnets available. From a review of the first edition: "This must now be the edition of first resort." Paul Hammond, Review of English Studies
