Shakespeare'S Sonnets and the Bible : A Spiritual Interpretation with Christian Sources Paperback
by Ira Zinman
2009 marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of William Shakespeare's Sonnets.
For centuries there has been a raging debate about whether or not Shakespeare was a spiritual person and the extent to which he used the Bible as a source and inspiration in his work.
While Shakespeare's plays have garnered much of the attention, discussions have seldom presented a complete exploration of his Sonnets.
This book gives a detailed examination of Shakespeare's Sonnets, identifying their underlying themes at the religious and scriptural levels of interpretation.
Christian readers and admirers of Shakespeare will be fascinated to learn the extent to which the most widely read author in the English-speaking world relied upon the Bible as an inspiration for his work.
