I'm reading through Shakespeare's sonnets. I'd like to read some enlightening commentary, written by a thoughtful, interesting person. The ideal book would be something like Susan Howe's My Emily Dickinson, but about these sonnets. I'm not really looking to have their meanings decoded for me, and I don't particularly care for facts, like who the "real" Dark Lady was. Whatever your recommendation, please also let me know why you're recommending it (what you like about it or about the author). Thank you.
