"In this collection of Shakespeare's sonnets, author Jeffrey Caminsky puts some of the fun back in the Bard's most private and personal set of poems. At once sensitive and tender, yet often skewering mistresses and patrons alike, Shakespeare's writing sings with passion and wit. With explanatory notes to help the modern reader sort through the unfamiliar Elizabethan vocabulary, this collection makes Shakespeare's sonnets--and, more importantly, his humanity and sense of fun--come back to life"--Page 4 of cover
