  16. Sonnet XIII — William Shakespeare [The EServer Poetry Collection] The website I had been using for years for reading through Shakespeare’s sonnets seems to now be roadkill on the Internet freeway. For the past several days, I’ve carried the links I’d collected during previous trips, hoping the site’s hiatus to be temporary. But now even if the site returns, I ought seek a more stable reference. So as not to disrupt the few trackbacks I’ve laid, I won’t modify links given previous posts, but will be modifying all links in my fledgling main index to the new center I’ll now be using for this thread.
