Shakespeare's work is full of metaphors. Some have worked their way into standard usage, whilst others sound strange to us today. We consider a range of metaphors in Shakespeare's poetry and plays, looking at significant sonnets and scenes closely, but also reflecting more broadly on the effects of metaphor.
