-14 lines
-Iambic Pentameter
-Static Rhythm
-3 Quatrains & 1 Couplet Example:
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? A
Thou art more lovely and more temperate: B
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, A
And summer's lease hath all too short a date: B
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, C
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; D
And every fair from fair sometime declines, C
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimm'd; D
But thy eternal summer shall not fade, E
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st; F
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, E
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st: F
So long as man can breath, or eyes can see, G
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. G Couplet (g,g) Static Rhythm (a-b-a-b...) Iambic Pentameter
e.g. Shall|I|com|pare|thee|to|a|sum|mer's|day

Example of an Insult "A Knave, a rascal, an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking, whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue, ;one—trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in a way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pander, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch."
This is a quote from King Leer.Even though King Leer is not a comedy, this is a good example of Shakespeare's insults. Quotations "Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!" Last 2 sonnets are based on Greek God Eros (Cupid)
126-152 are about a 'Dark' Lady That says 101... not LOL "much ado about nothing" Much ado about nothing is a great example a comedy. The conflict is one character makes another believe that his wife is cheating on him. And the husband and another character believe this lie. The conflict overall may be that marriage is a trap in which husband’s are bound to be controlled and deceived. But even though the characters tricking the husband believe this is the reality but all they really want is to be married themselves. In this story there is a large amount of the factor of mistaken identities, such as when a group of characters make Claudio(man that falls in love) believe that the women he is going to marry ,hero, is a whore. He believes this and leaves her at the alter. But ultimately, when Claudio marries this masked one he finds it to be hero the woman he wanted all long.
