About the Book
The scope and subjects of Shakespeare's writing is enormously wide, he has encompassed almost every aspect of human psyche & human life in utmost depth. It seems, his Muse has touched "Higher realms", unknown to ordinary human beings, to create such a literary beauty and psychologically so rich Sonnets, touching divinity through human love.

Since long there has been a scholarly dispute as to the identity of "the dark lady" and "the sweet boy" to whom many of Shakespeare's Sonnets are addressed, but, here, in this book, it is an attempt to briefly explain the meaning, depth and unwaveringness of love expressed in his Sonnets, without much bothering as to whom it is addressed.

This book intends to briefly explain the meaning of each Sonnet, so that the reading of original Sonnets become more enjoyable, even for a reader who may not be much familiar with Shakespearian style of writing.
Some of the Reviews about the book posted on Amazon
Shakespeare's beauty is eternally relevant. Mr. Vaishnav made it simple and very easy to read without making it sound too complicated hence preserving its eternal beauty.

In this book, Shakespeare's all 154 sonnets are explained in very simple and understandable language even to a layman like me. The meaning is conveyed exactly as in original text without distorting its literary beauty. At the same time explanation has not taken the form of lengthy theory, rather it's just a simplified form of sonnets only. Moreover, the nature of this book is such that it need not necessarily be read at one go; one can get refreshed & rejuvenated at any time by reading one or few sonnets & explanations. The first thought that came to my mind after reading the explanation of sonnets given in this book was that this book can serve as tool for common people for enjoying the beauty & depth of Shakespeare's timeless poetry, and can equally serve as an important reference book for those pursuing studies in English literature & Shakespeare's works.
