Sonnet 1 : From Fairest Creatures -- A Sonnet by William Shakespeare. About the sonnet - Sonnet 1 is the first in a series 154 sonnets written by William Shakespeare that were published in 1609. They were published without the authorization of Shakespeare himself, but the order remained the same and the sonnets continue to be read with this sonnet as the 1st in the sequence. Analyzing the sonnets in this order allows for an underlying story of a love triangle to emerge. Sonnet 1 is part of the "Fair Youth" sonnets, in which an unnamed young man (the beloved) is being addressed by the speaker (the lover) and later sonnets also refer to a "dark lady" (thus they are called the "Dark Lady" sonnets).

Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon--Avon.
