Sonnet 116,18 And 130 Compared To "Much Ado About Nothing"

996 words - 4 pages

Moving on to the sonnets, Sonnet 116 was a classic example of a conventional true love sonnet written by Shakespeare in the 16th century time period. It is very traditional and emphasises how love doesn't change so therefore is "ever-fixed". Hence, the tone of the poet is very serious and matter of fact. The rhyme scheme is very similar to the majority of the other sonnets with a rhyme scheme of C,D,C,D,E,F,E,F,G,G. Sonnet 116 contains 3 quatrains and a use of iambic pentameter. Throughout the sonnet there is use of imagery, for example "It is the star" emphasising that love will guide you. Through the duration of the sonnet love being permanent is exaggerated greatly. Shakespeare emphases ...view middle of the document...

In terms of the relationship of Benedick and Beatrice with Sonnet 116 is that "love is not love which alters". Benedicks reluctance of marrying: fear of being cuckolded and fear that his masculine pride could be threatened by women. This emphasises how at the beginning his love towards Beatrice wasn't very strong but throughout the play grew stronger and did not alter. Sonnet 130 is the opposite of the stereotypical love sonnet. It in fact makes fun of the typical hyperbolic love poetry. He is emphasises that regardless of the clichés concepts of beauty his "mistress" is still as beautiful. Despite the content of the sonnet being different the rhythm still follows the common rhyme scheme of ABABCDCDEFEFGG. The final couplet contains the twist of the poem where after saying negative things about her, he still thinks she is beautiful. This makes the tone of the sonnet mature as it shows he is mature enough to love her regardless of mocking her looks. There is also a satirized tone as it is essentially making fun of a traditional love sonnet. There are many metaphors in the poem in the poem, "no such roses in her cheeks", "if hair be wires,black wires grow on her. These however are not directly used to describe Shakespeares "mistress", each description undermines a metaphor. These metaphors also create imagery as the conventional desirable features e.g, red lips and musical voice, "my mistrtess,when she walks, treads on the ground". This clarifies just like everyone else she is not a goddess, she walks like everybody else. She is as beautiful as anyone who is praised with these false comparisons. *effect on reader* *sonnet 8* *adaptions* This sonnet had a moral effect on the reader as it was emphasising that someone even...

He may have tried to use individuality while creating his work, but he was stern and determined that all artists should paint from personal experience. I do not believe he was unique with his individual style. Most of his works were based on simple geometric shapes with sharp contours rendered in bright, but earthy colors. The scene itself was unique, but the colors, shapes, and motives did not stand out much. All in all, I think Wood's painting deserved the prizes it received, and the emotive messages were well shown.
