Mortality, rivalry and frustration stand out as some of the themes emerging from this collection of ten sonnets. The prospect of death and how it affects a relationship, the emergence of some other love interest, and the challenge of constantly renewing ones craft are all fodder for exploration. The readings on the PowerPoint provide a first port of call when it comes to analyzing these works but it is in the practical activities which foster group work and learning by engagement that students can start to see how Shakespeare produced such gems. Teachers and tutors can select material at random from the workbook to supplement and complement approaches taken in class. There are also new tasks to accentuate visual and oral engagement.
