Notes on the Sonnets

Luke Kennard

Signed by the author

"Luke Kennard’s “anarchic” response to Shakespeare’s Sonnets takes place at an awkward house party. Through a fun ride of timely humour, wit, intellect and sensitivity, the speaker experiences identity anxiety around authenticity in a social circle of middle-class liberals. Prepare yourself for “uncomfortable elements of human interaction and the changing nature of love”." ~ Laras, Bath
