Vilia miretur vulgus; mihi flavus Apollo Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua. Your honour's in all duty, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.

Vilia miretur vulgus; mihi flavus Apollo Pocula Castalia plena ministret aqua. To the right honorable henry wriothesly, earl of southampton, and baron of tichfield. EVEN as the sun with purple-colour'd face Had ta'en his last leave of the weeping morn, Rose-cheek'd Adonis hied him to the chase; Hunting he loved, but love he laugh'd to scorn; Sick-thoughted Venus makes amain unto him, And like a bold-faced suitor 'gins to woo him.

Venus and Adonis is a narrative poem by William Shakespeare published in 1593. It is probably Shakespeare's first publication. The poem tells the story of Venus, the goddess of Love; of her unrequited love; and of her attempted seduction of Adonis, an extremely handsome young man, who would rather go hunting. The poem is pastoral, and at times erotic, comic, and tragic. It contains discourses on the nature of love, and observations of nature.

Venus and Adonis book. Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis, published in 1593, is a long narrative poem of about 1,200 lines, based on Ovid and possibly other sources. As he leaves out the Atalanta digression, there is even less story in it than the Ovid. There are many echoes, certainly, of the early sonnets, for example the idea that beauty should mate, so as to preserve a copy of itself in the resultant offspring.

Venus and Adonis is Shakespeare's narrative poem about the love of the goddess Venus for the mortal youth Adonis, dedicated partly to his patron, the Earl of Southampton (thought by some to be the beautiful youth to which many of the Sonnets are addressed). The poem recounts Venus' attempts to woo Adonis, their passionate coupling, and Adonis' rejection of the goddess, to which she responds with jealousy, with tragic results.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) is the most influential writer in English history. Shakespeare has been called The Barb of Avon and England's national poet. There are 2 narrative poems, 154 sonnets and 38 plays in his collected works. He began work as an actor and writer in London first writing comedies and historic plays. He later wrote tragedies. Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Othello are some of his more famous plays. Venus and Adonis was written in 1593. In 1593 a plague closed all the playhouses in London which gave Shakespeare the time to write this poem based on a story from mythology. Venus is in love with Adonis but nothing she does interests him. Adonis says he will go boar hunting. Venus finds Adonis fatally gored by a boar and at that point puts a curse on love.
This isn't my favorite reading, but I have been getting the kindle versions of Shakespeare for a class, and I am loving these free kindle books. They have been great, and there has been nothing wrong with any of the prints.
Repalace a favorite vinyl record. Great selection.
One of the most romantic tragedy i've read..... A little confusing at first being esl but I still loved it
I always liked Shakespeare and this is just another work that has made me enjoy his work even more than when I was required to read it in high school.
Buyer beware,

The text in this book is difficult to read. The script is printed in old English, and its font is rather tricky to become accustomed to. Also, there are words that simply aren't printed properly, so that's only beneficial if you like to GUESS what Shakespeare was writing.

It's worth owning for collecting sake, but not very practical.
The sum total of the "annotations" included in this edition is some sub-Wikipedia level general preface material about Shakespeare, his life and work. Nothing specific to the content of the poem. Not worth the dollar.
greek gods , venus is the statue made in rememberence of somebody special . Adonis is someone I dont' wish to know well in the text.
somehow the two greekgods are nobody I want in my modern work of words
The whole book is translated into binary language - the language of the computers with '0's and '1's. A good read, if you are a robot. If you are a human, stay away from this book.

The disclaimer for this book says: "The ultimate translation, classic Shakesearean in binary. Why? Because it's cool". - Cool for who, I wonder!
