Sonnets Introduction

Shakespeare's Sonnets are regarded as some of the finest poetry in the English language. Unfortunately, neither of us are huge fans, so this is a rather irreverent summary of the poems.

Oscar Wilde's story about the person known as WH is available HERE.

Witness the most obscure document in Shakesparean research!

Note in particular the way that every word is followed by a period, making even the sentence's basic conjugation tricky at best.

As we say in the episode, TT is Thomas Thorpe, and WH is a mystery, probably to never be solved.

EDIT: The podcast initially came out doubled. It should be fixed now.
