LESSON PROPERThe teacher will introduce the sonnet:Sonnet #18Shall 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 dimmed,And every fair from fair sometime declines,By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st,Nor shall death brag thou wand’rest 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.Now that you have read the poem for the first time what do you think it is about?Sonnet 18 begins with a question which the rest of the sonnet answer Shakespeare compares his loved one to a summer’s day but finds the lover to be “more lovely and more temperate.
”The poet believes that love and beauty are more permanent than a summer’s day. Summer can be spoiled by bad weather and it always comes to an end. In contrast, the speaker’s love is eternal.The poet says that love transcends nature. In the line, “thy eternal summer shall not fade,” the beloved appears perfect, more beautiful than the summer’s day to which they are compared.The poet’s love is so powerful that he believes that even death could not limit it
