Summary
"Of Shakespeare's sonnets we know many details but little of their subjects and motives. This book delineates the customs and beliefs that shaped the sonnets, Shakespeare's life and world, and considers them in that context. This book argues for understanding the sonnets in their time, as this poet's edgy expression of the edgy culture of the English Renaissance"--Provided by publisher
