  • The Sonnets: A Novel By Warwick Collins No one knows for sure precisely when and where Shakespeare wrote his sonnets or, intriguingly, who he wrote them for This wonderfully entertaining novel imagines the circumstances that inspired 30 of the Bard s most popular sonnets The young Will Shakespeare is living under the patronage of Henry Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton The controversial earl is under presNo one knows for sure precisely when and where Shakespeare wrote his sonnets or, intriguingly, who he wrote them for This wonderfully entertaining novel imagines the circumstances that inspired 30 of the Bard s most popular sonnets The young Will Shakespeare is living under the patronage of Henry Wriothesley, Earl of Southampton The controversial earl is under pressure from his family and those close to the royal court to settle down but he is far too busy drinking, carousing, and cavorting with his motley band of acquaintances to pay attention Not then the obvious setting for poetic genius but within the politics both state and sexual of this lofty household Will finds lots to inspire his pen, and a few attractive distractions too With 30 sonnets interwoven into the text in seamless fashion, this clever tale crafted from fragments of history wears its scholarship lightly and its love of Shakespeare and poetry proudly.

    I ve just finished Warwick Collins new novel, entitled The Sonnets and drawing its inspiration from Shakespeare s sonnet sequence and the circumstances in which it was written It s a brave man who decides to narrate an episode from Shakespeare s life in the first person who opts, in other words, to impersonate the man himself and an even braver one who pens a couple of extra sonnets at crucial moments in the narrative, but Collins pulls off the first with considerable elegance and skill, and the [...]

    I think I bought this book when it first came out I quite liked the idea of a fictionalised account of how the sonnets were conceived I ended up getting very bored and finding it far too twee for my taste and shoved it into a corner filled with books that taunt me for wasting money on things I end up ignoring.My second attempt to read it faired better, probably because I felt a little kinder towards the subject this time It s a quick and short read, quiet in tone, thoughtful and pretty convincin [...]

    A novel set around Shakespeare s sonnets, it puts forward the idea that many were written during the closure of London theatres to prevent the spread of plague , for his patron Henry Wriothesley, 2nd Earl of Southampton the 1st Earl being the call me Risley of Hilary Mantel s Wolf Hall.I thought this was engaging and fascinating, and most importantly, brought the sonnets to life.

    This is not normally the sort of book I would pick for myself, tending to be one who leans towards chick lit than anything else However, having studied Shakespeare s sonnets through English and drama classes, I was actually quite interested to see what this book would be like and I really was pleasantly surprised The inclusion of the sonnets with relation to the text was brilliant and it was really interesting to see a possible context in which they might have been written The author used quite [...]

    Very quick read Deals with the period 1592 94 when the theatres were closed because of plague and the supposition that Shakespeare was working in Southampton s household and very friendly with the Earl during this period, so he could make a living Southampton even gave him 1000 to invest in the theatre later, according to this nove The dark lady in the sonnets is clerk tutor s Italian wife and the original sonnets were an experiment Shakespeare talks about his great age, as a comparison with Sou [...]

    Suprisingly sweet and convincing fictionalisation of Shakespeare as a young playwright Attempts to provide explanations and context to his sonnets Why oh why do publishers have to use the same cover headless woman in period dress for all historical fiction The Sonnets is so much better than Philippa Gregory so don t be misled

    I struggled with this entire book Although a clever idea, to write a novel around Shakespeare s sonnets and their subject matter, it was a trifle to flowery for my liking.
