The theme of both poems is love. This is easily seen in Sonnet 18. Sonnet 18 says, “Thou art more lovely and more temperate,” through this Shakespeare is saying that his love is more beautiful than any summer day (line 2). In this poem, Shakespeare compares his lover to marvelous things. On the other hand, love is not as easily recognized in Sonnet 130.
This dialog leads to the speaker answer: your mortal body will die, but our love will live forever and even renew. He is making it clear, that this is a spiritual matter: however their love will live, it is not earthly love. Because of his fame, the poem being read again and again, is keeping love alive. The metaphors in "Sonnet 18" support the theme of internal love. To illustrate the speaker uses Personification, when speaking about summer: it has a golden complexion, which can be destroyed by clouds.
Love is an emotion that can withstand difficult obstacles if their is a passion for each other and it is meant to be. When two people meet and have an affection towards each other, nothing can take away the beauty and chemistry shared between them. . In the three poems Sonnet 18 written by William Shakespeare, The Prologue to Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, and “Annabel Lee” written by Edgar Allan Poe, all introduce that love can be shown from different perspectives including death. In the poem, Sonnet 18 written by William Shakespeare, the speaker expresses his deep compassion for his lover by comparing her beauty and presence to summer.
It is a selfish and saintly love justified of respect and worship. In the poem, we can see his great attachment and dedication towards his beloved-Ann Moore, though being in love with her brought up disrespect and a bad reputation for him.In the very first lines of the poem, the speaker is addressing another person who is practically present and may be does not approve of his love affair with his beloved he says: “For God’s sake, hold your tongue and let me love”. The poem is a kind of passionate dramatic monologue through which the speaker is defending his act of love. The speaker asks him to keep mum and warns him not to interfere in the matter of his love. But the poem from its very beginning becomes very aggressive as the words suggest “For God’s sake”, where it refers to an acerbic suggestion of the speaker to defend his love.
On the said poem, she talks about her perception of genuine love. She explains how she wants to be loved by her significant other. It may sound that she commands his lover on how he wants to be loved, but in reality,
Meditations of time and change and their effects on beauty as well as the power of literature to stand against time. This is seen first as reproduction as, in sonnets 1-19 as Shakespeare urges a beautiful man to marry and procreate to preserve his beauty. For example sonnet 18; “…Thy eternal summer shall not fade… when in eternal lines to time thou growest.” And later as the power of poetry to mitigate the destructive nature of time against youth and memory. To generationally ensure the survival of the “darling buds of May.” Beauty which death cannot touch and time cannot erode. The object of the speaker’s devotion has been granted eternity by virtue of the lover who beholds them and whose words seek to encapsulate and commemorate them.
This theme is basic spirit of all sonnets of him. His treatment of love has something divine quality. “His love is ideal love and surpasses the love of Dante for his Beatrice and the love of Petrarch for his Laura. Nor could Mrs. Browning, in her sonnets, written much later and addressed to her husband, equal Shakespeare’s ardor and fervor.” 5 It is classical
Maybe Shakespeare use this type of repetition to move from tune to another tune by making it a strong bound. In the repeated of “love” in “love loves” Shakespeare moving from sadness, because they was laying on each other, to happiness, because they lie with knowing that and they still love each other, so it must be having a change in the tune between sadness and happiness for this sonnets. However, he also made a strong musical bound when he ends his sonnets by cooling down his sonnets suddenly when he says “love’s fire heats water, water cools not love”, maybe Shakespeare try to make the emotional reader, (who read and feel the text), to read his writing with the tune which Shakespeare wants. Conduplicatio, which mean the repeat of a word or a phrase more than one time in one paragraph. But in the sonnets, more than one time in the same sonnet, for example in sonnet 18 the word “fair” have been repeated three times, two times in the 7th line and one time in the
Everlasting Beauty and Love Beauty is the qualities deep within a person that brings pleasure and joy and it measures beyond just looks and styles, moreover, beauty shines from the inside out. Shakespeare emphasizes the beauty within a person as it shows throughout his poetry specifically in sonnet 18 and 55. The time individuals have on earth does not last forever as aging and death slowly take over, nonetheless, beauty and memories will last forever through Shakespeare’s writings. In both of these poems, Shakespeare focus on the beauty of each human as he ingrains the memories and love he has for his loved one in his writings. In Shakespeare’s sonnets, his focus is on a person, a guy or girl, who he describes in detail in both of his sonnets.
The speaker mentions becoming selfless due to love and how love can endure through complications. Comparatively, the song and the poem Trials, by Frank Mandarano are similar due to both texts revealing how love endures hardships. Trails details love overcoming all obstacles, announcing, “inside we get though because of something special we share.” The speaker in I Will Always Love You divulges how even through impediments a couples love will endure, stating, “I’ll think of you every step of the way.” In the song, the speaker expresses the sacrifices they withstand for the person they love, declaring, “if I should stay I would only be in your way.” However, they possess no animosity and desire the best for the other person, stating, “I wish to you joy.” Through those two quotes, Whitney Houston shows us that if a person puts themself second when they love an individual and the focus is not on them, hardships become
