154 sonnets and
William Shakespeare is the world's most acclaimed playwright, but of course a man of such capability did not only write plays. Other than thirty eight plays, Shakespeare's surviving works include one hundred and fifty four sonnets, two narrative poems and a range of other poems. Shakespeares narrative poems were published in 1593 and 1594 when theatres were closed due to the plague. They are entitled 'Venus and Adonis' and 'The Rape of Lucrece' and were dedicated to Henry Wriothesley, earl of Southampton. Shakespeare's other poems include another narrative poem: 'A Lover's Complaint' and 'The Phoenix and the Turtle'. Shakespeare wrote sonnets throughout his career for private readership only.
Sonnets, romance, poetry, and narrative poems
He wrote two long narrative poems, "Venus and Adonis" (published 1593) and "The Rape of Lucrece" (1594); both poems are dedicated to the Earl of Southampton, Henry Wriothesley. He also published a short poem called "The Phoenix and the Turtle", a reflection on the nature of perfect love, in an anthology in 1601.
More famous today are his sonnets (14-line poems.) A collection of these was published in 1609, though probably written in the 1590s; they are dedicated to a Mr "W.H.", who has never been identified. Many of the sonnets praise the beauty of an unnamed young man: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" is the best known. There has been speculation that Shakespeare was in love with this man, as well as with the equally mysterious "Dark Lady" who appears in later sonnets such as "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun." There is even a suggestion in these poems that these two betrayed him by falling in love with each other; but nobody knows what, if anything, really happened.
