The most debated aspect of Shakespeare’s life is his sexuality. Many people argue that his sonnets give us proof beyond doubt that he had homosexual tendencies. His sonnets are full of poetry that is largely romantic. Many of his sonnets are written to a man – unquestionably. Scholars call him “The Fair Youth”. Some scholars say the poetry Youth was symbolic and had different meaning. Others say he had homosexual relations with the Youth or desired him but never acted upon his feelings.
