Let's be clear: this review is about Sonnets to Sundry Notes of Music. I have no idea why it is showing up on this page with what I should have bought in the first place (and may yet). There's a little blue note at the top of my "review" that says that but it clearly should NOT be on this page. Thanks to Mr Malone for pointing that out. The interesting thing is my review also appears on the right page as does his, making it the one misplaced. As I say above, beware, Amazon has linked two very disparite titles inappropriately or so it seems to me.
This pocket-sized volume (avaiable in either hardcover or paperback) is beautifully produced on quality paper and the ideal small gift. The 154 sonnets are offered one-per-page which allows focussed reading free of distraction.
There is a 9-page foreword penned by Fiona Shaw, followed by a 7-page introduction by Jonathan Bate, and then it's straight into the sonnets.
The only issue for some readers might be that the numbering sequence differs from that used traditionally because the compilers (Bate and Rasmussen) have attempted to apply the results of academic research to place the sonnets in the chronological order as they are now thought to have been written. Since there is no index of first lines, finding your favourites is difficult initially, as you have to read through them all to find out which number has been allocated to it. However you soon become familiar with the sequencing and you can enjoy these timeless gems exploring the heart of human experience as Shakespeare discourses on love, obsession, life and death, ageing and the way our experiences with relationships (two in particular in Shakespeare's case are explored) affect us.
This fine edition is a snip at the price (especially the paperback) and if you don't have a copy of the sonnets, this would be a good choice to buy.
The only drawback is that the TOC does not link to each individual sonnet. To get to Sonnet 67, for example, you have to type it into the search box. A linked index of first lines would be helpful.
