    Sonnet 106

    Sonnet 106

    When in the chronicle of wasted time
    I see descriptions of the fairest wights,
    And beauty making beautiful old rhyme
    In praise of ladies dead and lovely knights,

    Sonnet 105

    Sonnet 105

    Let not my love be call'd idolatry,
    Nor my beloved as an idol show,
    Since all alike my songs and praises be
    To one, of one, still such, and ever so.

    Sonnet 104

    Sonnet 104

    To me, fair friend, you never can be old,
    For as you were when first your eye I ey'd,
    Such seems your beauty still. Three winters cold
    Have from the forests shook three summers' pride,

    Sonnet 103

    Sonnet 103

    Alack, what poverty my Muse brings forth,
    That having such a scope to show her pride,
    The argument all bare is of more worth
    Than when it hath my added praise beside.

    Sonnet 102

    Sonnet 102

    My love is strength'ned, though more weak in seeming,
    I love not less, though less the show appear;
    That love is merchandiz'd whose rich esteeming
    The owner's tongue doth publish every where.

    Sonnet 101

    O truant Muse, what shall be thy amends
    For thy neglect of truth in beauty dy'd?
    Both truth and beauty on my love depends;
    So dost thou too, and therein dignified.

It’s a 15 minute classroom that will make you smarter

Fifteen to 20 minutes in length you get a weekly “lecture” of a single Shakespeare sonnet. It’s best to listen to them in order as many times one sonnet builds onto the next one. Clearly described and concisely argued each episode is great!!

A helpful delight!

I’ve been working my way through the Complete Works of William Shakespeare in a year with a group on Facebook. And I’ve been doing OK with keeping up on the reading schedule but I fell off entirely when it came time to the sonnets.
Enter the Shakespeare Sundays podcast! Listening to the initial reading, the complete breakdown and analysis, the context with the other sonnets and the reading with all that interpretation applied has made the sonnets come alive in unexpected ways. Ehren is delightful to listen to while I cross stitch or take a walk. Thank you for the incredible work!
