The Illustrated Book of Shakespeare's Verse Hardback
Edited by L. K. Bulbeck
Part of the Foiled Gift Books series
Shakespeare is regarded as the greatest English-lagnguage playwright of all time.
He was a natural poet, writing some long narrative poems, many sonnets and much of his plays in rhyming or blank verse.
His sonnets have been praised as a profound meditation on the nature of love, sexual passion, procreation, death, and time.
This beautifully bound and illustrated book contains a carefully chosen selection of the bard's verse, from Sonnet 18's 'Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?' and Sonnet 116's 'Let Me Not To The Marriage Of True Minds', to Hamlet's speech 'To be, or not to be'.
It would make a very special gift to any fan of Shakespeare.
