Scholars and commentators proclaim that Shakespeare’s sonnets alone would earn him a permanent place in literary history. Approach Shakespeare with “no drama.” The sonnets convey the Bard’s lyric voice, shaped by a specific verse form all his own. The poems are brief, exquisite, and packed with wit and wisdom. The required text is the paperback “Shakespeare’s Sonnets” (Folger Shakespeare Library Series). Attend to the Bard’s lyric voice to access or deepen one’s enjoyment of Shakespeare and poetry. “If this be error and upon me proved, / I never writ, nor no man ever loved.”
