The Sonnets follows Will Marlowe, a Columbia University English professor, who, while teaching a class on Shakespeare, realizes that his life is beginning to parallel the Bards sonnets. Although married to a woman named Anne, Will falls for a handsome young man who inspires him, and becomes involved with a dark, mysterious, feminist graduate student. Nudging into the fray is the university poet, a rival of Wills, who tries to steal the young man away. Will is now forced to face the funny and disastrous consequences of these contending forces.
