Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare Sonnet Analysis Prewriting

Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare Sonnet Analysis Prewriting Part I: Before Reading Sonnet 90 by Petrarch (trans. By Morris Bishop) She used to let her golden hair fly free. For the wind to toy and tangle and molest; Her eyes were brighter than the radiant west. (Seldom they shine so now.) I used to see

Pity look out of those deep eyes on me. ("It was false pity," you would now protest.) I had love's tinder heaped within my breast; What wonder that the flame burnt furiously? She did not walk in any mortal way, But with angelic progress; when she spoke, Unearthly voices sang in unison. She seemed divine among the dreary folk Of earth. You say she is not so today? Well, though the bow's unbent, the wound bleeds on. Part I: Before Reading

A. Poet William Shakespeare (1564-1616) Wrote 154 sonnets Together, the sonnets tell a story main characters: a young nobleman, a lady, a poet, and a rival poet Part I: Before Reading B. Structure Shakespearean Sonnet Rhyme scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GG

Rhyming Couplet Lines 13 and 14 Presents a reversal in thought Part I: Before Reading C. Literary Elements simile: comparison using like or as metaphor: comparison without using like or as parody: a work created to mock, comment on,

or make fun of another work, author, or style Part II: During Reading http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3G Swrb9_NQ Part II: During Reading B. Second Reading: Paraphrase each line. 1 My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; My mistress' eyes are not like the sun; 2 Coral is far more red than her lips' red; Coral is much more red than her lips;

3 If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If snow is white, then her breasts are a brownish gray; 4 If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. If hairs are like wires, hers are black and not golden. Part II: During Reading 5 I have seen roses damask'd, red and white, I have seen damask roses, red and white, 6 But no such roses see I in her cheeks; But I do not see those colors in her cheeks; 7 And in some perfumes is there more delight And some perfumes give more delight

8 Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. Than the horrid breath of my mistress. Part II: During Reading 9 I love to hear her speak, yet well I know I love to hear her speak, but I know 10 That music hath a far more pleasing sound; That music has a more pleasing sound; 11 I grant I never saw a goddess go; I've never seen a goddess walk; 12 My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground: But I know that my mistress walks only on the ground:

Part II: During Reading 13And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare And yet I think my love is as rare 14 As any she belied with false compare. As any woman who has been misrepresented by ridiculous comparisons. Part II: During Reading

Lines 1-12 Description of what his love doesnt look like Lines 13-14 He still loves her as much as women whose beauty has been misrepresented by ridiculous comparisons are loved Part II: During Reading

B. Third Reading: Find examples of literary elements. Provide the line number(s) for the examples. Explain the purpose of the literary elements within the poem. Simile 1-3 1: eyes (nothing) like the sun 2: lips (not) as red as coral 3: breasts as white as snow (if the poem was not a parody) Purpose: to show the reader what his mistress

looks like (or doesnt look like) in order to show that she looks like a normal person with imperfections Part II: During Reading B. Third Reading: Find examples of literary elements. Provide the line number(s) for the examples. Explain the purpose of the literary elements within the poem. Metaphor

4, 7-8, 9-10 4: her hairs are black wire 7-8: breath is not perfume 9-10: voice is music (if the poem was not a parody) Purpose: to show the reader what his mistress looks like (or doesnt look like) in order to show that she looks like a normal person with imperfections Part II: During Reading

B. Third Reading: Find examples of literary elements. Provide the line number(s) for the examples. Explain the purpose of the literary elements within the poem. Parody 1-12 Purpose:

to mock poets that make ridiculous comparisons about the women they love to show that he is still in love even though his woman is a normal person with imperfections Part III: After Reading C. Body Paragraphs Elaboration A. The first literary element I selected to convey meaning is simile. 1. Example: My mistress eyes are nothing like the sun: the purpose is to show that her eyes are not as bright as the sun

they are normal (line:1) 2. Example: Coral is far more red than her lips red: the purpose is to show that her lips are not as red as coral (line: 2) Group Work In groups (that I will choose) analyze one of Shakespeares sonnets. I will assign each group one of four sonnets

on the handout. Follow the same steps we did together for Sonnet 130. Then we will come together as a class, and each group will share their groups analysis.
