Reading Shakespeare's sonnets is a joy forever and is certainly the second best way to appreciate these beautiful poems. The best way, however, is to write them yourself - with this app. Enjoy Shakespeare's sonnets by actively learning them!
Select the sonnet of your choice and rebuild it line by line. Each line is broken up into fragments and it is up to you to put them back in the correct order.
