Description

Candlestick Press offers completely unique and beautiful poetry chapbooks, which can to be given instead of a greeting card. The chapbooks are designed and printed in the UK on high quality, tactile paper and are packaged with a bookmark left blank for your message’ as well as an envelope. People need only a stamp to send these lovely gifts on their way. The chapbooks are delightful and intellectually gratifying. They are objects of beauty and offer poems that are worthwhile, profound, and exhilarating to read. Shakespeare’s Sonnets were first published in 1609. Here, we present a tribute to him and to them. A collection of one hundred and fifty four poems, the sonnets have appeared in countless editions over the centuries and been translated into every major living language. They have remained close to the hearts of readers and been pored over with endless fascination by literary critics; they have been raided by other writers and lines from them have entered our shared culture. Reading the sonnets from start to finish is to be immersed in beauty – indeed, to be immersed in one of the most extraordinary sequences of poems ever written.
