While William Shakespeare’s reputation is based primarily on his plays, he
became famous first as a poet. With the partial exception of the Sonnets
(1609), quarried since the early 19th century for autobiographical
secrets allegedly encoded in them, the nondramatic writings have
traditionally been pushed to the margins of the Shakespeare industry. Yet
the study of his nondramatic poetry can illuminate Shakespeare’s activities
as a poet emphatically of his own age, especially in the period of
extraordinary literary ferment in the last ten or twelve years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth.
