    I got to the Sonnet game late and have only read – 1 through 67 thus far. You’re doing a great job!

  3. Andreas says:

    Father Z.; Your reference to Shakespeare being married made me wonder if the ‘dark lady’ might have in reality been Shakespeare’s way of surreptitiously responding to issues he might have been having with his wife, Anne Hathaway. Whilst certain contemporary portraits have her as fair and light haired, others depict her visage as well as hair color as being decidedly dark.

  4. Andreas: That’s an interesting idea. There was a suggestion in a previous sonnet about fair being dark and dark fair.
