Is this poem a touching paean to inner beauty opposed to superficiality or is it misogynist trash? Anyway, before we proceed to our analysis of this divisive poem, here is Sonnet I have seen roses damasked, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound: I grant I never saw My Mistress Eyes Are Nothing Like The Sun (130) - Various - When Love Speaks goddess go, My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground: And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare, As any she belied with false compare.
Perfumes smell sweeter than the breath that comes out of her mouth. And yet, I think she is as rare a woman as any woman who has been falsely compared to these paragons of beauty. How we respond to these questions will probably come as much from our own convictions on these issues as it will from the poem itself.
Do we think that by merely rejecting such hyperbole, Shakespeare is doing down his mistress? If you found this analysis of Sonnet useful, you can discover more about the Sonnets here.

I found this an interesting insight on this sonnet! My opinion is we will never be able to really know what went through any writers head.
I used to feel conflicted having to do that in my literary classes: But with that said, I tend to go how it makes me feel and I feel like its a more of a statement Marco Corona - Gayenello (File) how narrow the idea of beauty was over a declaration of love which came in a distant second.
You have missed the important point of this sonnetit is not about the early blooming of love in youthful passion but the lasting love and friendship that endears us to our chosen one. Love then ceases to be intent on appearances and focuses on character. Remember familiarity often breeds lovewe love our old furniturethe nondescript Hva Har Vel Du - Finn Eriksens Orkester - Vi Vil Leve in our gardenour faithful old dog etc.
I have loved this sonnet for many years at least in part because of Sting! Sting says that the best way to deal with drunks is to quote Shakespeare at them and in this case he quoted the first line of this sonnet. I have always wanted to try this out for myself…. Was this sonnet, in fact, the first complaint against the fashion industry of poetry creating unrealistic images of women which simply could not be met by most women?
I think so, and so I like the sonnet :. Thanks for reminding me of the wonderful Sting album! A fine poem, and well crafted :. Yes, Sting is Family Man - Various - Black Music Classics wonderfully intelligent artist as well as highly talented as a musician.
