Omtale: An Introduction to Shakespeare's Poems
This title provides a lively and informed examination of Shakespeare's non-dramatic poetry: the narrative poems "Venus and Adonis" and "The Rape of Lucrece" the "Sonnets" and various minor poems, including some only recently attributed to Shakespeare. Peter Hyland locates Shakespeare as a sceptical voice within the turbulent social context in which Elizabethan professional poets had to work, and relates his poems to the tastes, values and political pressures of his time. Hyland also explores how Shakespeare's poetry can be of interest to 21st century readers.
