Transcript of Sonnet 57

Shakespearean Sonnet 57 Sonnet 57 Being your slave what should I do but tend,
Upon the hours, and times of your desire?
I have no precious time at all to spend;
Nor services to do, till you require.
Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour,
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour,
When you have bid your servant once adieu;
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But, like a sad slave, stay and think of nought
Save, where you are, how happy you make those.
So true a fool is love, that in your will,
Though you do anything, he thinks no ill. Theme The author would wait a century for his friend to return for him. He would do anything for him just as a slave would do for his master. Love with unequal power is expressed in this poem as the hopeless slave and the superior friend who has no time for him. Literal Meaning The struggling of the author is not just that he longs for his friend, but in that he must pretend to not care. He pretends this both to his friend, whom he is talking about in this sonnet, as well as to himself while he waits. The speaker wants his attention and clearly feels jealous, but the fair lord is out mingling somewhere else with others. The fair lord’s actions are distasteful. By Genessa Bagain and Gracen Booker Symbolic Meaning Sonnet 57 reflects two attitudes; the helpless poet and the powerful prevailing lover. The poem in itself is an extended metaphor. Irony has also be used in the poem where the lover says that he has no time to himself and yet questions later his jealous thoughts of where the lover has been.
