William Shakespeare

C.N. Potter, 1987 - 61 páginas
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.

Tomorrow is Saint Valentines day
Come unto these yellow sands
thou art too dear for my possessing
They that have powr to hurt and will do none
The barge she sat in like a burnished throne
Ye elves of hills brooks standing lakes and groves 59
