Shakespeare’s Sonnets are as important and vital today as they were when first published four hundred years ago. Perhaps no collection of verse before or since has so captured the imagination of readers and lovers; certainly no poem has come under such intense critical scrutiny, and presented the reader with such a bewildering number of alternative interpretations. Don Paterson’s criticism includes Reading Shakespeare’s Sonnets. Emma Smith is Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Oxford and the author of This is Shakespeare and The Cambridge Introduction to Shakespeare. Chaired by Peter Florence.
