5.0 su 5 stelle wonderful poetry 13 ottobre 2012
Di Sam Randelli RECENSORE TOP 50
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
I just love Shakespeare's work. The way he uses the language, the way he can catch human feelings and ideas and put them down into paper. I simply love all of that. Here we have the sonnets, part of them dedicated to a Black Lady and part of them dedicated to a Young Guy. They talk about love, eternity, seasons, changing, feelings, future, past, present. How he can speak nowadays even in the XVII century always impressed me a lot.

I sonetti sono bellissimi, profondi, delicati ma anche ironici e witty. D'altra parte Shakespeare è Shakespeare... Migliore garanzia di questa....

4.0 su 5 stelle the Poetry is Excellent, but . . . 8 settembre 2011
Di Patrick J. Southam - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
I am a big fan of Shakespeare, his poetry as well as his plays. The poetry here is excellent. I deduct one star from this review, because on the kindle version, the default type size setting puts about 8 sentences per page, and each sentence runs to 2 lines. Thus, you don't see the entire poem on a single page, with each sentence in a single line as you would in a nice paper book. Maybe that is nit-picky to some folks.

That being said, I greatly appreciate Kindle, and the wide variety of classic literature available for little cost. Thank you to all who are making these things available for e-readers.

5.0 su 5 stelle Shall I compare these to a summer's day? 25 aprile 2011
Di E. A Solinas - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
William Shakespeare is best known as a playwright. When you think of Shakespeare, you automatically think of plays -- "Romeo and Juliet," "Macbeth," "Hamlet," etc.

But he was also a poet of considerable skill. And while he sprinkled his various plays with poetry and songs, his poems are best appreciated when they're read all by themselves -- particularly the cluster of brilliant "Sonnets" that he penned. These works just have a unique, hauntingly vivid flavour of their own.

Each sonnet has no title, and is simply identified by numbers. And while Shakespeare's love poems are the best known of these works, he addresses different themes in theme -- old age, writer's block loneliness, the cruelty of the world, sex, beauty, a mysterious rival poet, and Shakespeare's own complicated romantic feelings (love that "looks upon tempests and is not shaken").

And these poems are absolutely lovely. Some of these sonnets are pretty well-known ("Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?/Thou art more lovely and more temperate") but most of them are a little more obscure. They have vivid metaphors and imagery ("let not winter's ragged hand deface," "gold candles fix'd in heaven's air") and hauntingly lovely passages ("What is your substance, whereof are you made,/That millions of strange shadows on you tend?").

And these sonnets really give you new insights into Shakespeare as a person -- he feels uncertainty, passionate love, unhappiness, lust and quirky humor. But while it's obvious these sonnets were deeply personal, they can still be appreciated on their own, particularly as love poetry.

William Shakespeare's "Sonnets" are rich with meaning, language and atmosphere -- the Elizabethan English takes a little deciphering, but it's well worth it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Sound Smart, For Free! 13 maggio 2013

The sonnets are free. Download them. Put them on the front screen of your kindle, then get up to buy a coffee. Make sure the hipster girl sitting at the table next to you sees what you are reading on your kindle. Get back to your table, look like you are reading sonnets. Pretend to weep softly to yourself. Look up and catch her eye. She gives you a kind small smile. Get up and leave, never to see her again, because what could be is always more beautiful than what is.

Or actually read the sonnets because it is Shakespeare, and he is an amazing poet.

Di Tyson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle|Acquisto verificato
Shakespeare's sonnets are even more genius than time has given them credit. If I had to choose between Hamlet and The Sonnets.. it would be a very difficult choice. Shakespeare re-invented the sonnet, gave it a more mainstream structure. Each one tells a brief story, a super mini-play, an inner monologue, an ode to love, betrayal or wisdom. I enjoy 21st century poetry from time to time, but this is the stuff you can sink your teeth into. I like the structure and its limits. Shakespeare takes complicated life experiences and explains them in 140 syllables and a catchy rhyme scheme. Modern poets enjoy making life sound even more complicated than it really is.

Every reader far and wide should read Shakespeare's Sonnets. Your IQ will rise before your eyes. You should also check out The Death Sonnets (Halloween Library Edition) which is a modern collection of spooky poetry written in the Shakespearean Sonnet structure.
