SHAKESPEARE'S SONNETS is the title of a collection of 154 sonnets by William Shakespeare, which covers themes such as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality. The first 126 sonnets are addressed to a young man; the last 28 to a woman. The sonnets were first published in a 1609 quarto with the full stylized title: “SHAKE-SPEARES SONNETS. Never before Imprinted.” (although sonnets 138 and 144 had previously been published in the 1599 miscellany The Passionate Pilgrim). The quarto ends with “A Lover's Complaint”, a narrative poem of 47 seven-line stanzas written in rhyme royal—though some scholars have argued convincingly against Shakespeare’s authorship of the poem. The sonnets to the young man express overwhelming, obsessional love. The main issue of debate has always been whether it remained platonic or became physical. The first 17 poems, traditionally called the procreation sonnets, are addressed to the young man urging him to marry and have children in order to immortalize his beauty by passing it to the next generation. Other sonnets express the speaker's love for the young man; brood upon loneliness, death, and the transience of life; seem to criticize the young man for preferring a rival poet; express ambiguous feelings for the speaker's mistress; and pun on the poet's name. The final two sonnets are allegorical treatments of Greek epigrams referring to the “little love-god” Cupid.

Произведение «Поэтика» создал древнегреческий ученый-энциклопедист, известный как основатель классической логики, Аристотель (384-322 г.г. до н. э.)*** Литературное исследование автора является одним из первых в истории произведением, в котором обобщены эстетические знания античного мира. Автор произвел целый ряд теоретико-литературных категорий, объяснив разделение литературы на три вида: эпос, драму и лирику. К научно-творческому наследию Аристотеля относят следующие произведения: собрание произведений по логике «Органон», «Метафизика», «Физика», «Политика», «Этика», «Поэтика», «О душе», «Афинская полития». Аристотель – величайший из философов античного мира, авторитет которого был непоколебим и в эпоху средневековья, когда церковь отвергала все наследие древней Греции, как языческое. В его философской концепции имелось уже много элементов материализма.

Aristotle's Poetics (Greek: Περὶ ποιητικῆς; Latin: De Poetica) is the earliest surviving work of dramatic theory and first extant philosophical treatise to focus on literary theory. In it, Aristotle offers an account of what he calls «poetry» (a term that derives from a classical Greek term, ποιητής, that means «poet; author; maker» and in this context includes verse drama – comedy, tragedy, and the satyr play – as well as lyric poetry and epic poetry). They are similar in the fact that they are all imitations but different in the three ways that Aristotle describes: Differences in music rhythm, harmony, meter and melody. Difference of goodness in the characters. Difference in how the narrative is presented: telling a story or acting it out. In examining its «first principles», Aristotle finds two: 1) imitation and 2) genres and other concepts by which that of truth is applied/revealed in the poesis. His analysis of tragedy constitutes the core of the discussion. Although Aristotle's Poetics is universally acknowledged in the Western critical tradition, «almost every detail about his seminal work has aroused divergent opinions». The work was lost to the Western world for a long time. It was available in the Middle Ages and early Renaissance only through a Latin translation of an Arabic version written by Averroes. Aristotle's work on aesthetics consists of the Poetics, Politics and Rhetoric. The Poetics is specifically concerned with drama. At some point, Aristotle's original work was divided in two, each «book» written on a separate roll of papyrus.
