'Shakespeare's Sonnets, Retold'—now available for pre-order

Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Retold will be published by Penguin Random House in November and is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

Shakespeare’s Sonnets, Retold is a contemporary, line-by-line, iambic-pentameter re-write of all 154 of the Bard’s classic love poems. It aims to help reveal the complex emotions expressed through Shakespeare’s exquisite—but often baffling—language, and thereby open up the sonnets for a modern reader to enjoy.

Two versions of the book are available.  The UK version, published by the Ebury division of Penguin Random House, will be available from November 8th in the UK and across the Commonwealth. The North American version, published by Crown in Americanized English, will be available from November 13th.
