I dunno why, but the sonnets have never excited me the way the plays (even the bad ones) do. Even Titus, and Cymbeline and Coriolanus, at their most dreadful, have the power to put me in the time and place and recognize why the people there were so much like me, or I like them, in spite of the gulf of time and place and station between us.
