  22. 22. Quatrain One: ABAB<br />When to the season of sweet silent thought A<br />I summon up remembrance of things past B<br />I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought A<br />And with old woes’ new wail my dear times wasteB<br />Shakespeare is thinking to himself, and mournfully regretting that he has not been able to achieve all the things he wanted to in life. <br />
  23. 23. Quatrain Two: CDCD<br />Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow C<br />For precious friends hid in death’s dateless night D<br />And weep afresh love’s long since cancelled woeC<br />And moan the expense of many a vanished sightD<br />Shakespeare tells us that he cries….cries about memories, and specifically of the specific people and things he has lost that have been dear to him.<br />
  24. 24. Quatrain Three: EFEF<br />Then can I grieve at grievances foregone E<br />And heavily from woe to woe tell o’er F<br />The sad account of fore-bemoaned moanE<br />Which I new pay as if not paid before F<br />Shakespeare will continue to grieve over his losses, over his regrets and over his sad memories. The sadness seems to get increasingly worse.<br />
  25. 25. Concluding Couplet: GG<br />But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,G<br />All losses are restored and sorrows end. G<br />To remedy his sadness and regrets, Shakespeare chooses to think about a dear friend. The thought of this friend brings him warmness and happiness.<br />
  26. 26. Sonnet130- (My personal favorite)<br />
  27. 27. Quatrain One: ABAB<br />My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; A<br />Coral is far more red than her lips’ red. B<br />If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun.A<br />If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.B<br />Shakespeare is basically saying here that his mistress (significant other) is ugly. Her eyes do not shine, her lips are dull, she does not have fair, pretty skin, and her hair is rough and greasy rather than smooth.<br />
  28. 28. Quatrain Two: CDCD<br />I have seen roses damasked, red and white, C<br />But no such roses see I in her cheeks; D<br />And in some perfumes is there more delightC<br />Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.D<br />Shakespeare continues on, marking more grievances about his mistress. Her cheeks are plain and do not blush, as other pretty lady’s cheeks do, and worse, her breath really stinks.<br />
  29. 29. Quatrain Three: EFEF<br />I love to hear her speak, yet well I knowE<br />That music hath a far more pleasing sound. F<br />I grant I never saw a goddess go: E<br />MY mistress when she walks, treads on the ground. F<br />More complaining!! Shakespeare’s girlfriend’s voice makes his ears cringe. Her voice is not smooth and melodic!! And she isn’t graceful either. She stomps around like a guy in army boots!!<br />
  30. 30. Concluding Couplet: GG<br />And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare G<br />As any she belied with false compare. G<br />Mmmm….<br />Shakespeare certainly isn’t a shallow man!! By this short couplet alone, we see how dear his mistress is to him. Nothing can compare to her, and he loves her immensely, despite all her little “flaws” society might mark against her. This is genuine true love!!!<br />
