Veröffentlicht 1609, sind William Shakespeares Sonette inzwischen über 400 Jahre alt. Und doch: ihre Sprache ist noch immer von atemberaubender Intensität und Kraft.

Ich empfehle die englischsprachigen Seiten unter www.shakespeares-sonnets.com um die Sonette zusammen mit viel erklärendem Kommentar zu lesen.
