Paul Edmondson and Sir Stanley Wells
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
What happens when we place Shakespeare’s Sonnets into a possible chronological order of their composition? What happens if we then include the sonnets embedded within Shakespeare’s plays among them (for example from Romeo and Juliet)? These ground-breaking questions are answered by Professor Sir Stanley Wells and Dr Paul Edmondson in their new edition All the Sonnets of Shakespeare (Cambridge University Press). This seminar looks at several individual sonnets in light of this fresh approach and includes audio readings from All the Sonnets of Shakespeare by Sir Kenneth Branagh and Lolita Chakrabarti.
