Suggests that the lost frame of reference for the Sonnets is to be found in France. The Dark Lady, it appears, was French and the sonnet story took place not in Shakespeare's England but at the Court of Navarre. Moreover, the lady was not Shakespeare's mistress, for he was not the original sonnet poet but an adapter, who turned French sonnets into English.

«Я, размышляя, на холме лежалИ вдруг услышал горьких жалоб звуки.Покатый склон, удвоив, отражалВ лазурный купол этот голос муки.То бурно плача, то ломая руки,Шла девушка по берегу рекиИ все рвала какие-то листки...»

The Drama in Shakespeare's Sonnets: "A Satire to Decay" is a work of detective scholarship. Unable to believe that England's great dramatist would publish a sequence of sonnets without a plot, Mark Jay Mirsky-novelist, playwright, and professor of English, proposes a solution to a riddle that has frustrated scholars and poets alike. Arguing that the Sonnets are not just a "higgledy piggledy" collection of poems but were put in order by Shakespeare himself, and drawing on the insights of several of the Sonnets' foremost contemporary scholars, Mirsky examines the Sonnets poem by poem to ask what is the story of the whole. Mirsky takes Shakespeare at his own word in Sonnet 100, where the poet, tongue in cheek, advises his lover to regard"time's spoils"-in this case, "any wrinkle graven" in his cheek-as but "a satire to decay." The comfort is obviously double-edged, but it can also be read as a mirror of Shakespeare's "satire" on himself, as if to praise his own wrinkles, and reflects thepoet's intention in assembling the Sonnets to satirize the playwright's own "decay" as a man and a lover. In a parody of sonnet sequences written by his fellow poets Spenser and Daniel, Shakespeare's mordant wit conceals a bitter laugh at his ownromantic life. The Drama in Shakespeare's Sonnets demonstrates the playwright's wish to capture the drama of the sexual betrayal as he experienced it in a triangle of friendship and eroticism with a man and a woman. It is a plot, however, that theplaywright does not want to advertise too widely and conceals in the 1609 Quarto from all but a very few. Despite Shakespeare's moments of despair at his male friend's betrayal and the poet's cursing at the sexual promiscuity of the so-called Dark Lady, The Drama in Shakespeare's Sonnets sees the whole as a "satire" by Shakespeare and, particularly when read with the poem that accompanied it in the 1609 printing, "A Lover's Complaint," as a laughing meditation on the irrepressible joy of sexual life.

In this lively, fascinating account of the publication of Shakespeare's Sonnets, noted biographer Clinton Heylin brings their convoluted history to light, beginning with the first complete appearance of the Sonnets in print in May, 1609. He introduces us to the “unholy alliance” involved in this precarious enterprise: Thomas Thorpe, the publisher, a self-described “well wishing adventurer;” George Eld, the printer, heavily embroiled in large-scale pirating; William Aspley, the prestigious bookseller, who mysteriously ended his association with Thorpe soon after. Leaving the calamitous world of Elizabethan publishing, Heylin goes on to chart the many editions of the Sonnets through the years and the editorial decisions that led to their present configuration. Passionate, astute, and brilliantly entertaining, the result is a concise and vivid history of perhaps the greatest poetry ever written.

Поэма «Венера и Адонис» принесла славу Шекспиру среди образованной публики, говорят, лондонские прелестницы держали книгу под подушкой, а оксфордские студенты заучивали наизусть целые пассажи и распевали их на улицах. «Лукреция» также имела немалый успех у читателя, в основу поэмы положен сюжет из древнеримской истории, описанный Титом Ливием и Овидием, пересказанный Дж. Чосером в «Легендах о добрых женах».Дискуссии вокруг сонетов Уильяма Шекспира до сих пор не утихают: действительно ли сонеты автобиографичны? Существовал ли любовный треугольник, о котором говорится в сонетах 133, 134 и 144? Кто был прототипом Друга и Смуглой дамы? Знаменитые сонеты Шекспира издаются в классическом переводе Самуила Маршака.В дополнение вошли четыре эссе переводчика Г. М. Кружкова, посвященные интригующим и не до конца проясненным вопросам, касающимся поэм Шекспира и его сонетов.

Поэма «Потерянный рай», созданная величайшим британским поэтом и публицистом Джоном Мильтоном — одно из самых замечательных явлений в английской литературе 17 века. В творении, посвященном христианской теме грехопадения, пуританину Мильтону удивительно удалось совместить чувства, стиль и дух античности и Возрождения, нотки прометеевского свободолюбия и гуманистического опыта возвеличивания человека. Однако автор напоминает, что источник всех зол — та нездоровая жажда свободы, в основе которой лежит гордость и самопревозношение. Книга представлена в прекрасном и мелодичном прозаическом переводе, осуществленном А.Шульговской в конце 19 века.
