Each poster presents a Shakespearean Sonnet, for a set of 6 FREE sonnets on posters. Use these posters to create themed displays and beautiful bulletin boards and for attractive classroom decor.
The creative use of font in the posters brings these printed poems into the 21st century and makes reading the poems a little easier. Striking and modern visuals also add readability and thematic interest.
Why these 6 sonnets? I read through all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets looking for poems that I thought would work especially well with teens... and these are the 6 that I chose: 17, 27, 29, 91, 138, and 147. They’re straightforward, reasonably easy to understand, and speak passionately about love and life.
Each poster is 11 x 17 and suitable for black and white printing.

★ Shakespeare's Sonnet 17: An Analysis of Meter: one of the sonnets I chose for teens; it speaks passionately about being believed when singing the praises of a beloved
★ Shakespeare's Sonnet 27: An Analysis of Meter: another sonnet I chose for teens; it's about the speaker's inability to sleep at night because he can't stop thinking of his beloved
★ Shakespeare's Sonnet 29: An Analysis of Meter: another sonnet I chose for teens; in this poem, the speaker bemoans his life as an outcast, but thoughts of his beloved make life valuable
