Reading Shakespeare's Sonnets: Don Paterson
Sat 22 October 2016, 19:30 – 20:30 BST
As important and vital today as they were when first published over four hundred years ago, perhaps no collection of verse before or since has so captured the imagination of readers. In this illuminating and often irreverent guide, Don Paterson offers a fresh and direct approach to Shakespeare’s Sonnets, asking what they can still mean to the twenty-first century reader. In a series of fascinating and highly entertaining commentaries placed alongside the poems themselves, Don Paterson discusses the meaning, technique, hidden structure and feverish narrative of the Sonnets, an indispensable insight into our greatest Elizabethan writer by one of the leading poets of our own day.
