  • Love in Shakespeare’s Works
    Love is what Ludwig Wittgenstein called a “family-resemblance” concept: that is to say, it has no single, core meaning in all of its separate uses. Instead it produces a network of meanings, each of which may in turn be related to other words – other strands in the network – cognate with it in ways that depend on context.
  • 6. Love in Shakespeare’s Works (Cont’d)
    • Many of his works are a conflict of love and hate
    • 7. Two examples are Romeo and Juliet and All’s Well That Ends Well
    • 8. All throughout Shakespeare’s Sonnets, he mentions a love between two people
  • Sonnets
    • They can be divided into two sections
    • 9. Section one 1-126
    • 10. Section two 127-154
    • 11. These sonnets have a recurring theme of young beauty destroyed over a period of time, and the ability of art and love to exceed time and even death and last forever
    • 1-17 recommended marriage
    • 12. 18-24 was young love
    • 13. 25-52 discussed travel, absence, and disgrace

  • Sonnet 18
    • Marks a change in the theme of the “sonnet story”
    • 19. The theme is love stability and power
    • 20. Many believe it to be the ultimate love poem
  • Sonnet 29
    The mood of the sonnets change
    The poet feels insecure, embarrassed, troubled, unsuccessful, and severely envious at everyone
    Something that makes this sonnet unusual is it bares only one metaphor
  • 21. Sonnet 116
    • one of Shakespeare most famous, read, and admired sonnets, nonetheless it is the least understood and least agreed upon on what he was trying to portray.
    • 22. Hilton Landry thinks that the sonnets leading up to sonnet 116 gives insight to this poem
    • 23. The sonnet speaks of love in its most abundant and glorious form. Two people come together in love based on understanding and trust.
    • 24. Throughout the poem, he speaks of everything love is, and in the final couplet, he says that if he is mistaken about the purities of true love, that he takes it back and no man has ever truly loved
  • Sonnet 126
    • It only has12 lines, instead of the normal 14 lines.
    • 25. It also has a six rhymed pentameter couplet instead of the normal three quatrains with alternating rhyme
  • Sonnet 130
    • Is written about the dark lady
    • 26. Is probably the most famous of all the sonnets
    • 27. There has been a debate on whether this sonnet should be taken seriously or as amusing
  • Question of Authorship
    • There has been much debate in if Shakespeare truly wrote all that he is given credit for.
    • 28. Many people say that the “true Shakespeare’s” are Francis Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, Edward de Vere, Sir Henry Neville
    • 29. Michael J. Cummings claims that Shakespeare used his nickname “Will” in sonnet 135 as a pun and also indirectly identifies himself as the author of the poem.
