Threading Shakespeare's Sonnets

What's that, you say? Sorry, what? I'm having trouble hearing you over the deafening roar of my own semester's-starting-but-I'm-on-sabbitical self-satisfaction. Come again? Oh! Okay. So you say you wish there were an excellent poem-by-poem commentary on Shakespeare's sonnets that treats them not only as individual poems, but as parts of a coherent sequence? And you want it when? Now, as in right this minute now? And online, for free, in all of its glory? Well, thanks to Ken Bennett, you need wail in the wilderness no more. His Threading Shakespeare's Sonnets is now up at the Lake Forest College website. Rejoice!
