Event description

Description

The sonnets of William Shakespeare are one of the treasures of English literature, yet they are surrounded by enigma. Questions of date, authorship and the identity of the people addressed have indeed perplexed scholars through many generations. In this session, led by Dr. Richard Moore, we shall look at a selection (sent out in advance), examining the themes, the motifs and the world the poems represent. Find out about the codes in Elizabethan poetry and the secret symbolism in the writing. Marvel at the jewelled imagery and the assurance of the writing. The poems may be only miniatures but they are polished ones and many of them do indeed shine like rubies.
