A Lover's Complaint
Phoenix & the Turtle
The Rape of Lucrece
Venus and Adonis




Though William Shakespeare is known primarily today as a playwright, he wrote several short and long poems throughout his writing career.  The most famous of these poems are his Sonnets of which only a handful are readily known such as "Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day" and "Let us not to marriage of true minds, admit impediments.  While these have been known as some of the most famous love poems in all of English literature, he also wrote several other works that were more popular in his own day than most of his plays.  His two long narrative poems Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were repeatedly published throughout his life and established him as a household name among London's literary elite.  Click on the side links or the links below to view his various poems
