William Shakespeare: The Complete Works - William Shakespeare

Venus and Adonis

 

The first poem in my reading, Venus and Adonis, is a smooth constructed story based on the Greco-Roman myth.  Though I did get lost a few times when figuring out if the narrator, Venus, or Adonis was speaking it was an enjoyable piece.  The ABABCC stanzas were well done and I often found myself admiring the precision of rhymes than the actual content.
