Shakespeare’s sonnets are revered the world over for perfectly capturing the torments and joys of love—requited or otherwise—in just fourteen lines of iambic pentameter. This treasure of a book collects 29 of the bard’s most romantic sonnets, each one lovingly illustrated by the talented Caitlin Keegan. Pretty and contemporary, the illustrations tastefully accentuate the depth of sentiment in each sonnet. A brilliant sun rises over the 17th Sonnet (“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”) and a graceful animal adorns the 19th Sonnet (“Devouring time, blunt thou the lion’s paws”). Available just in time for Valentine’s Day but appropriate for any spontaneous expression of love, this is an ideal, sophisticated gift for the legions of Shakespeare fans.
