  • "It is likely that Shakespeare wrote most of his sonnets before 1600. They are dedicated to Mr. W.H., the "only begetter" of the poems. His identity and whether he is to be identified with the youth addressed in the sonnets is still a matter for debate. Similar and less successful attempts have been made to identify the so-called "Dark Lady" who is the troublesome and unfaithful mistress of the later sonnets, and the "Rival Poet" of such poems as sonnet 86. The poems to the youth dwell on the great Renaissance themes of friendship, love, death, change and immortality and the relationship of the poet's art to all of these."@en
