Melissa sonnet 130

  1. 1. Sonnet CXXX<br />Melissa Lopez<br />Jonathan Ledon<br />
  2. 2. Quatrain 1<br />Interpretation<br />My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; coral is far more red than her lips’ red; if snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; if hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. <br /> She has dark eyes, her lips are not red. Her breasts are not as white as snow and she has black hair.<br />
  3. 3. Interpretation<br />Quatrain 2<br /> I have seen roses damask’d, red and white, but no such roses see I in her cheeks; and in some perfumes is there more delight than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.<br />She has pale cheeks, he is also saying that her breath doesn’t smell as good as some perfumes.<br />
  4. 4. Quatrain 3<br />Interpretation<br /> I love to hear her speak, yet well I know that music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; my mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground.<br />He loves to hear her speak, but he knows that music has a more pleasing sound than her voice; He’s never seen a goddess walk, but he knows that she walks only on the ground.<br />
  5. 5. Couplet 1<br />Interpretation<br /> And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare. As any she belied with false compare<br />Even though she is not special, his love for her is still unique <br />
  6. 6. Shakespeare’s View on Love<br /> Shakespeare considers his love to be unique. He focuses on all his mistresses’ flaws, but he still loves her. He expresses her qualities in a negative way, yet he still loves everything about her. In this sonnet Shakespeare is mocking his mistress.<br />
  7. 7. My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun<br />
  8. 8. Coral is far more red than her lips’ red<br />
  9. 9. If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun<br />
  10. 10. If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head<br />
  11. 11. I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,<br /> but not such roses see I in her cheeks.<br />
  12. 12. And in some perfumes is there more delight<br />Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks<br />
  13. 13. I love to hear her speak, yet I will know<br />That music hath a far more pleasing sound<br />
  14. 14. I grant I never saw a goddess go;<br />My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground<br />
  15. 15. And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare<br />As any she belied with false compare<br />
