The Complete Sonnets and Poems - Colin Burrow, William Shakespeare This review should sum it up:

http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/77941316

As for the rest (excluding the sonnets), they are fine, but so long. On the over all, I am more or less unable to appreciate Shakespeare's poetry, just as I was more or less unable to appreciate the bulk of his plays. The poetry is very pretty, but it just doesn't do anything more than 'pretty' for me.

I won't deny that this is a pleasant read - I will probably never delete the ebook from my kindle, since it would make excellent 5 minute reads whenever I don't feel like thinking.
