Sidney and Shakespeare Sonnets


You should read through all of the Sidney and Shakespeare sonnets included in the Norton to get a sense of how these poems work together as a group or "cycle."

Here are the ones I plan to discuss in some detail in lecture. If you have time, you may want to give these extra attention as you read.

Sidney, Astrophel and Stella

Sonnets 1, 31, 9



Sonnets, 3, 19, 55, 65, 127, 129 and 130
