Shakespeare's Sonnets: Critical Essays is the essential Sonnets anthology for our time. This important collection focuses exclusively on contemporary criticism of the Sonnets, reprinting three highly influential essays from the past decade and including sixteen original analyses by leading scholars in the field. The contributors' diverse approaches range from the new historicism to the new bibliography, from formalism to feminism, from reception theory to cultural materialism, and from biographical criticism to queer theory. In addition, James Schiffer's introduction offers a comprehensive survey of 400 years of criticism of these fascinating, enigmatic poems.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This very big collection of essays on the Sonnets is especially valuable for its comments on gender and sexuality and its close reading of quite a few of the poems. Schiffer's extensive bibliographic introduction helps to orient a student, fresh to the subject, to basic problems, issues and interpretations. The editor wisely steers clear of endless, fruitless discussion of autobiography."
-"The Shakespeare Newsletter, Winter 1999
