Review: Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
The first poem in my reading, Venus and Adonis, is a smooth constructed story based on the Greco-Roman myth. Though I did get lost a few times when figuring out if the narrator, Venus, or Adonis was speaking it was an enjoyable piece. The ABABCC stanzas were well done and I often found myself admiring the precision of rhymes than the actual content.
