Venus and Adonis - The Complete Shakespeare - HD Restored Edition



Cast: Irene Worth, George Rylands, Ian Lang.

'O, learn to love, the lesson is but plain,
And once made perfect, never lost again.'

Shakespeare’s great erotic poem tells the story of Venus' obsession with the handsome Adonis.

In Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the boy hunter Adonis is the willing lover of Venus, the goddess of love, and dies accidentally. Shakespeare has Adonis reject Venus. Venus endlessly argues for making love, with Adonis uttering petulant protests.
