This Arden Shakespeare book contains the two major narrative poems and the few shorter poems. The introductory essay is a major contribution. It shines a bright light on the poems, their context and history. The essay shows how these poems have been relatively neglected by Shakespeare studies, why they should not be, and the essay demonstrates what fertile ground the poems offer to those who read and consider them.

It is a pleasure to follow the authors as they take on the "riddle" of the extremely unusual and remarkable poem "The Phoenix and the Turtle".

The essay is super-brilliant. It considers what's been said in the past, as well as the latest ideas, and makes some discoveries of its own. The style gets a bit academic at times, but it's very sharp.

The poems themselves are astonishing, to read them is an opportunity to experience Shakespeare as he writes almost novelistically -- immersing a solitary reader.
So many beautiful pieces and it is formatted quite nicely.
great research and fabulous text...arden wins again...
This book is fantastic! You get Venus and Adonis (erotic love poem), Rape of Lucrece (roman rape poem), Lover's Complaint (about the dangers of Love), Phoenix and the Turtle (symbolic of Love and Faith), and of course 154 lovely SONNETS.
David Bevington's introductions are short and informative; the footnotes are there for guidance and do not interfere with the text. A wonderful text. Buy it and take it to the beach.
This is an overall lovely compilation of Shakespeare's non-dramatic works. It's the perfect size to throw in a purse, or keep on a nightstand. The format and font are comfortable and inviting, although the sonnets are not identified by number in any way.

I do want to point out one short-fall, however. I have committed many sonnets to memory before owning this particular book and was looking one up to double-check I line I couldn't quite remember when I realized this one was missing. After a thorough sonnet-by-sonnet checking I discovered that this edition has left out 19 of the 154 sonnets. To be exact, the missing sonnets are numbers 16, 24, 25, 31, 37, 42,45,59, 80, 108, 122, 125, 134, 136, 139, 143, 148, 150, and 154.

I appreciate the inclusion of the narrative poems and some songs, but buyer beware that you will not have a complete collection of the sonnets.
