Description of Activity

What is the relationship between Shakespeare and his sonnets? Do they confess his love sincerely and, if so, for whom? Or should we read them as self-conscious poetical games? What can understanding something about the Renaissance sonnet tradition tells us about Shakespeare's approached sonneteering? This presentation toyed with some of the answers to these questions.
