The Poems

by William Shakespeare

The PoemsShakespeare's greatest achievement in nondramatic verse was his collection of 154 magnificent sonnets that portray a tumultuous world of love, rivalry, and conflict among a poet, an aristocratic young man, a rival poet, and a mysterious "dark lady." More profound than other Elizabethan sonnet sequences and never surpassed as archetypes of the form, these poems explore almost every imaginable emotional complexity related to love and friendship. Some poems are dark, bitter, and self-hating, others express idealism with unmatchable eloquence-and all are of quintessential beauty, part of the world's great literary heritage.In addition to his sonnets, Shakespeare published two long poems early in his career: Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. Immediately popular in Shakespeare's time, they display a richness that can also reward us with insights into the powerful imagery of his plays.Rounding out this volume are two minor poems, "A Lover's Complaint" and "The Phoenix and Turtle," thought to be part of Shakespeare's early writings.From the Paperback edition.

El rey Lear

by William Shakespeare

La tragedia del Rey Lear fue escrita probablemente entre 1605 y 1606. Su protagonista es un anciano monarca que, antes de dividir el reino entre sus tres hijas, les pide que halaguen su vanidad. Mientras Regan y Goneril lo complacen, la tercera, Cordelia, rechaza obrar con hipocresía. Tal actitud desata la hybris del rey y lo lleva a destruir la felicidad de su familia, de sus súbditos y la suya propia. La historia secundaria, la del Duque de Gloucester y sus hijos Edmundo y Edgardo, pone en escena un conflicto similar al principal, Tanto Lear como Gloucester llegarán a la verdad sólo al término de una serie de padecimientos. Con un lenguaje coherente, poético y vital, los personajes de las obras de Shakespeare nos hablan desde lo más hondo de su situación existencial: ciegos de amor, consumiéndose de celos, agitados por la duda, devorados por la ambición y el remordimiento, debatiéndose entre el bien y el mal, ebrios de fanfarronería, y, lo que resulta más inquietante, sin ninguna finalidad moral.
