The Magic of Shakespeare's Sonnets

The full text article is not available.

Occult philosophy or magic provides a context within which Shakespeare's sonnets need to be read, for it adds a new dimension of meaning to familiar passages and enhances our awareness of their richness and complexity. The sequence can be seen to explore two vital areas of magic: erotic magic and the art of memory. Magic dominates the three central characters – the poet, the young man, and the dark lady – and conditions their relationships.
