Both of these poems deal with the subject of love but each poem deals with its subject matter in a slightly different way. Each also has a different purpose and audience. In the case of 'Shall I compare thee ' the audience is meant to be the person Shakespeare is writing the sonnet about.

Nick Carraway, a young man from Minnesota who lives in New York City to learn the bond business, is typically an honest and tolerant man.
