I’ve asked on Twitter, I’ve asked on Facebook (* so if you’ve answered there no need to answer again :)) so now I’m asking here for people that only read the blog:
What’s your favorite sonnet? The catch : you can’t answer 18, 29, 116 or 130.
Everybody and their mother has been inundated with those particular sonnets over the years. What I’m looking for is the next group, the ones that the Shakespeare geeks love that, with a little more exposure, we can get the rest of the world to acknowledge.
So, hit me. Other than those famous four, what’s your favorite sonnet, and why? To make the results the most objective, try to come up with your answer before you look at the comments, otherwise you’ll never be able to tell if your vote was swayed.
