In today's episode, we are continuing our series on Shakespeare's Language Framework by looking at his sonnets!

In addition to his plays, Shakespeare also wrote 154 sonnets. What are they and can they tell us anything about the man behind the plays?

You can listen to our previous Language Framework episode here. 

Shakespeare Anyone? is created and produced by Korey Leigh Smith and Elyse Sharp.

Music is "Neverending Minute" by Sounds Like Sander.
