Shakespeare, William: Sonnets, v.1, 20 Dec 2007

Someone asked for some poetry. So here are all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets, one per page.

I've added two pictures, a clickable numerical index, plus a clickable index of first lines. This took ages. I would have composed a sonnet to celebrate, but I'm too tired. So here's one of my favourites:

Sonnet 64

When I have seen by Time's fell hand defaced
The rich-proud cost of outworn buried age,
When sometime lofty towers I see down-rased,
And brass eternal slave to mortal rage.
When I have seen the hungry ocean gain
Advantage on the kingdom of the shore,
And the firm soil win of the watery main,
Increasing store with loss, and loss with store.
When I have seen such interchange of State,
Or state it self confounded, to decay,
Ruin hath taught me thus to ruminate
That Time will come and take my love away.
This thought is as a death which cannot choose
But weep to have, that which it fears to lose

such a shame. Kindle doesn't seem to read or convert from prc anymore. Tried to send this to my kindle email to receive such alert.

and I can't believe how mistreated the bard is everywhere around. The omnibus on gutenberg has a truly horrid and useless table of contents...

pynch has created an excellent epub version of Shakespeare's collected works, including the sonnets.

All you have to do is convert it to AZW3 with Calibre or Kindle Previewer.

Not to mention that there are also some good versions at Amazon that aren't expensive as well. Some as low as .99 for his complete works.

If you're seriously interested, though, get the Oxford Shakespeare. A scholarly edition of the complete works with all the extras you'd expect from such a volume at a very reasonable price.

It contains no notes on the language.

Based on the preview of the print edition, it contains an introduction into Shakespeare's language by noted linguist David Crystal. (You can read the whole section, if you click Look Inside.)

@HarryT: The print edition seems to be nicely done, however, many reviewers complained about OCR errors, missing content and formatting issues in the Kindle edition and Amazon has officially flagged the Kindle book for missing content and typos.

I see there's also a "Print Replica" Kindle Edition which won't have those issues, but that can only be used on tablet and PC apps, not eInk Kindles.

Yes, the Arden Shakespeare is, to my mind, the best Shakespeare edition (I have the complete set of the paperbacks of the individual plays). They are gradually releasing the plays as ebooks (and very nicely done, too) but unfortunately they've done yet done an ebook "Complete Works". I wish they would!

hmm, I'm a native portuguese speaker, but can read original Shakespeare just fine. Now, Chaucer is a bit more work, but still doable at a slower pace. Beowulf is plain german to me.


many thanks for the links. It's been a long time I've resorted back to either desktops or laptops, so caliber is out. But there are many converters for smartphone, I'll try my luck.

that said, I did download some of the individual plays from Feedbooks, nice formating but authors such as these are better suited for an omnibus edition.

I have a copy of it. Back in 1989 after the 6 week season (Boy Scout Camp) ended I used some of my earnings to buy it. It was around $45.00 at the time I think. Not the most portable version but I had always wanted a copy of Shakepeare's works for my own bookcase.
