An active approach to Shakespeare in the classroom. This edition of The Sonnets is part of the Cambridge School Shakespeare series. Like the plays in the series, it has been specially prepared to help all students in schools and colleges. Each sonnet is presented with accompanying material which aims to enrich your own experience of the poem, whilst leaving you to make your own mind up about the sonnet rather than having someone else\'s interpretation and judgement handed down to you. You will find help with unfamiliar words, with imagery, and with other \'poetic\' features, as well as suggestions for practical work. There are also notes to increase your understanding of the language and themes of the sonnets, and of the historical and literary climate in which they were written.
