Shakespeare’s sonnetsĀ are a collection of 154Ā sonnets that dealĀ with themes such as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality.Ā The quarto ends with “A Lover’s Complaint”, a narrative poem of 47 seven-line stanzas written inĀ rhyme royal.

The first 17 poems which are traditionally called theĀ procreation sonnets, are addressed to a young man urging him to marry and have children in order to immortalise his beauty by passing it to the next generation.Ā Other sonnets express the speaker’s love for a young man, brood upon loneliness, death, and the transience of life seem to criticise the young man for preferring a rival poet, express ambiguous feelings for the speaker’sĀ mistress,Ā and pun on the poet’s name. The final two sonnets areĀ allegoricalĀ treatments of GreekĀ epigramsĀ referring to the “little love-god”Ā Cupid.

Pandorica has made several trademark images that involve some of these sonnets. Have a read!
