This website is for lovers of Shakespeare’s Sonnets.

Hall, George Henry, 1825-1913; An Ideal Portrait of William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

I have long been disappointed by the way these sonnets are interpreted by the scholars of the English language.  The subject matter of the Sonnets are not all about love for a young man or fear about contracting venereal disease from a dark-skinned prostitute.  The true message comes from a Passionate Pilgrim making a spiritual journey; an inner transformation towards enlightenment.

Please start by reading the Introduction, then an alternative interpretation of the Sonnets.
