Shakespear 18. Sonnet

Analyzing Shakespear's 18. Sonnet

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade,

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;

Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,

 So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

In this poem, even though throughout stanza seems as if it includes a love poem, I think it is not. it begins with Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? That indicates there is someone who might be more beautiful than summer’s day and the poem goes on this mystery person. The third and four stanzas show us that this summer’s day is described as having limited time to stay. In 5 and 6 stanza Show that even summer day’s light and hotness can fade away by a cloud that covers the sun or snow can replace its way, however, the beauty or love that author compares is different from summer’s day because we can assume that summer’s day should be more praised than the beauty he mentioned, but Praise author praises the beauty of someone or maybe himself while saying that No lose possession of that fair(which is I think beauty) and nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade, so they are meant to be sent to this beauty as a compliment because as I said summer’s day is limited and lose itself whereas his beauty cannot be died and will be faded away or will lose its possession of being beautiful. Immortalize In 12, 13, 14 stanza show what is beauty or love presented in poem. It is the eternal lines of the author’s poems that will not fade away even though he’s died, as long as people breathe or see the lines of him, those lines will give life to him because dying is nothing for the author because of his lines living that will remind the real person
