Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 5, No. 0019. Monday, 10 January 1994.

Subject: Recommendations on how to read the Sonnets
I would appreciate comments from people with more experience than I
about reading the Sonnets. The Washington Shakespeare Reading Group
meets approximately once a fortnight and reads in an evening one of the
plays of the Bard (with each member reading a different character). I
thought it might be interesting instead of reading a play to read some
or all of the Sonnets. Is this a good idea? Do you have a preferred
order, or ones you omit when teaching? Any recommendations on how to
proceed would be welcome.
By the way if any SHAKSPEReans in the Washington, DC, area would like
to join us, our upcoming readings are:
Sat 22 Jan Troilus and Cressida
Fri 4 Feb Measure for Measure
Sat 26 Feb Othello
Our meetings begin promptly at 7:30 pm in the basement of the
Palisades Community Church, 5200 Cathedral Avenue, NW.
Secretary, Washington Shakespeare Reading Group
