Arguably the greatest of all the great Elizabethan sonnet-sequences, Shakespeare’s sonnets have inspired admiration, imitation, and speculation in readers and writers for over four centuries. This course will offer an opportunity to explore some of English literature’s most significant works. By closely reading Shakespeare’s sonnets, we will chart the sequence’s multiple historical, intellectual, and biographical contexts, its relationship to the plays, and Shakespeare’s re-fashioning of the sonnet form and its traditions, as well as considering the sequence’s remarkably diverse legacies in subsequent poetry.
