Understanding Shakespeare's sonnets
Shakespeare's sonnets is the title of a collection of 154 sonnets. The sonnets cover such themes as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality. The first 126 are addressed to a young man; the last 28 to a woman. The Sonnets include a dedication to one "Mr. W.H." whose identity remains a mystery since the 19th century.
