Content notes: no language issues, save that some words may be un-intelligable to the non-Shakespearian reader and to avid Shakespeare readers, but by now we know to look them up or figure from context.
Sensuality issues are rampant. Venus attempts to rape Adonis, Lucrece is raped under duress and all the other poems hint at sexual relations before marriage. On top of that is the usual Shakespearian double speak where words can be taken at face value or as bawdy undertones. Violence-wise, Adonis dies by a wild boar and Lucrece commits suicide to escape from her shame.
Neither of these is graphic in the normal sense, but Shakespeare does love having blood "speak" so it is very prevelant. Other notes, female readers may have issues with imagery of women being the eviler sex as some of the later poems hint, but keep in mind the speaker is supposed to be a dissatisfied lover and is rather annoyed with his lady.
On a personal note, having completed these poems, I have now read all Shakespeare atributed materials that can be found by the general public! Yes, I do feel rather accomplished! Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….

In , plague and possibly political machinations using plague as a convenient excuse to subdue free speech led to the closure of London's theatres for almost two years.
At the time, this was terrible news for Shakespeare who, with his Henry VI trilogy and Richard III had just had a series of great successes and must have been itching to get on with whatever was next planned, but all this was replaced with either expulsion to the provinces or enforced leisure. So - it's clear that Shakespeare was not only famous, he was ruffling many authors' feathers who didn't consider him U enough to enter their esteemed society a snobbishness that continues to this day among those who insist that Shakespeare didn't exist, but was actually a nobleman's some even bizarrely believe it was Queen Elizabeth herself pseudonym.
When he returned to plays his obsession with seneca-style revenge tragedy had gone and he blossomed into the full-flowering of his middle-period, and thanks for this can largely be put towards the time, thought and energy put into these poems. So, on to the poems themselves. I must say that before I read these I'd never read any of Shakespeare's poetry beyond a selection of the Sonnets which will come later in this project. In and these two poems were published, dedicated to the Earl of Southampton who appears to have patronised the writer and they were an enormous success.
Venus and Adonis was the first work to appear on bookstands with William Shakespeare's name emblazoned on the title-page and it went through 7 editions in the next fews years - an enormous popularity when you take into account the low-level of literacy, lack of leisure time to dedicate to reading outside the upper and merchant classes and high expense of buying a printed book compared with going to the theatre.
