Description
Information
Shakespeare was already established as a major dramatist when he wrote 'Venus and Adonis' and 'The Rape of Lucrece'. At one level both are 'display' poems designed to entertain a sophisticated courtly circle, but they also reveal Shakespear's preoccupation with the nature of love and lust and the ensuing conflict between reason and passion. In 'The Phoenix and Turtle', Shakespeare's most ambiguous and controversial poem, the theme of eternal love and fidelity is expressed in some of his most versatile and dazzling language.
