Shakespeare's Sonnets

Shakespeare's Sonnets | English | Scoop.it

"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..."

Marli Roos's insight:

Shakespearean sonnets are a very structured form of poetry. It is interesting to explore how Shakespeare’s use of metaphor and other poetic devices adds to the quality of the poetry and helps create mood.

 

Questions to complete:

 

Q1. Locate any personification within Shakespeare’s ‘Sonnet 18’ and reflect upon how these enhance the poem.

 

Q2. Create a list of five of your own metaphors or examples of personification.
