...Love, Nature and Loss in two sonnets. The sonnet form is a small space with very strict conventions of form. In such a limited format poets often choose to explain a single idea in such a way that it remains in the reader’s mind through memorable images and turns of phrase. This paper compares two sonnets which were written some 200 years apart: William Shakespeare’s sonnet 18 “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” and William Wordsworth;s sonnet “The World is too Much with Us.” This paper argues that although the two sonnets both have the same general topic of...

...Sonnets are literary forms that usually thematically express romantic love and the sonnet sequence, Astrophel and Stella, written by Sir Philip Sidney, is also no exception to this. This sonnet sequence is a discourse on the existential and moral concerns of a man, Astrophel, who is passionately in love with a married woman, Stella (Sidney, 2004). Astrophel is seen oscillating between hope and disappointment as he pursues this woman in his dreams and in reality (Sidney, 2004). Rejection by her flairs up a self-destructive fire in him and the sonnet sequence culminates in his unfathomable misery (Sidney, 2004, p.75-76).

Introduction William Shakespeare, known simply as “The Bard,” was one of the most magnificently famous poets of his day in the early 17th century. This was because he wrote about topics which people could relate to well. For example, in his sonnets numbers 30, 55, and 116, we see continual evidences of Shakespeare’s thoughts on love, friendship, and marriage. While what he said on paper may still move us today, sometimes what one might think that he meant is not actually what the reader understood it to mean.
