Throughout William Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 130,” the reader is constantly tricked into thinking he will compare his mistress to something beautiful and romantic, but instead the speaker lists beautiful things and declares that she is not like them. His language is unpredictable and humor is used for a majority of the poem. This captivating sonnet uses elements such as tone, parody, images, senses, form, and rhyme scheme to illustrate the contradicting comparisons of his mistress and the overarching theme of true love.

Even though Martin Luther was a member of the Catholic Church, he began to question the beliefs and the customs that the church preached. The belief that the individual could not communicate with God was one of his main contentions. The Catholic Church looked to the Pope to find a relationship with God.
