The vogue for composing sonnets arrived in England in the late sixteenth century. These short verses told a story and were typically dedicated to a lady; standard themes were the lady s coldness and the poet s despair. William Shakespeare s efforts are distinctive in that many of them are admonishments to a young man (to marry, to pro-create, to forswear vanity and cruelty), rather than the more usual expressions of distress or delight attending romantic love. Whomever they were intended for, the forty-eight sonnets in this deck deftly, delicately convey the spirit s confrontation with time, change, death, love, lust, and beauty.
