SHAKESPEARE'S SONNETS

Size: 90mm x 66mm or 3.5in x 2.6in.
Based upon the text in the Bodleian Library reproduced by The Scolar Press; this is our own edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets.  Not the most scholarly text it, has to be said, but one that is a little simplified so that some of the most arcane references are easier to read.  Every version of the sonnets is a catalogue of choices of interpretation of original printing errors and of presumed poor original copy. 

Nowhere in the sonnets is there a reference to a couple in love on a swing.  The sonnets, however, do concern the ecstasies of romance which are represented by the couple, and also the swing, There is also the famous Sonnet 18 which refers to the month of May. Shakespeare's sonnets of course also deal with the the frauds of love. The metal cover on our book is taken from a turn-of-the-century, solid silver cigarette case which was embossed with an interpretation of the wonderful painting by Auguste Cot (1837-1883) of two young people rapturously in love.  The painting, known as "Le Printemps" or "Springtime", is on display with Cot's other work "The Storm"  in a place where both masterpieces should be, in The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Shall I compare thee to a Summer's Day?
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May.
