"Shakespeare's 154 sonnets, which appeared in 1609, give us our last and best sight of him as a non-dramatic poet. In their original quarto version, printed on ordinary paper, two sonnets to a page, the poems appear fugitive and perishable. In fact, only a few copies of the quarto have survived. In this edition, each of these memorable poems is given its due - a page of its own. Here each sonnet can shine bright." (Introduction). Item #01643
