Dark Lady Sonnets

Entertainment / Literature / Dark Lady Sonnets: Sonnets 127-147 of the Shakespearean collection published in 1609 are known loosely as the 'Dark Lady' sonnets because most of them have an implied audience or implied subject-matter of a mysterious sexually promiscuous woman with dark features. This contrasts with the traditional Petrarchan conceits of a fair-haired and fair-skinned lover who is coldly aloof to the male speaker's wooing. Contrast with the 'young man' sonnets earlier in the collection.
