One of the great sonnet sequences of all time – 154 poems exploring love, desire, envy and jealousy, and the ravages of time. Possibly an autobiographical suite of poems leading us closer to Shakespeare than any other writings can – or simply an abstract intellectual exercise by a supremely gifted writer.

Comic, sensual, bawdy and beautiful, this long poem tells of the desire of Venus, goddess of beauty and love, for the young Adonis, who would much rather be hunting, and its tragic end.

Stately and somber, this long poem tells of the desire of Tarquin, Prince of Rome, for the chaste Lucrece, and his rape of her, and of how she comes to kill herself in her shame.

Most likely a pirated volume containing variants of some of Shakespeare’s sonnets, along with extracts from Love’s Labor’s Lost and poems by unknown authors, possibly by Shakespeare, others likely not.

An enigmatic poem about the constancy of love between a phoenix (a mythological bird) and a turtledove, likely with allegorical meanings we can no longer understand.
