Shakespeare's reputation as a playwright overshadows the fact that he was perhaps an even greater poet. This selection of his poetry -- sonnets, and songs and verse from the plays, some justly familiar, others less known -- offers the quintessence of his remarkable art and provides an enticing introduction to his work.

The songs and sonnets are accompanied by Elizabethan miniatures and illuminated manuscripts, the verse from plays is accompanied by paintings of the nineteenth century.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

About the Author:

Peter Porter is a firm believer in the doctrine that poets make the best critics of poetry. He left his native Australia in 1951 to live in London, where he is now well established as poet, editor, critic and broadcaster. His Collected Poems were published in 1983. He won the poetry category of the Whitbread Prize in 1988.
