Sonnets Hip-Hop and Shakespeare What do Shakespeare and rap have in the common? Form: 14 lines- 3 quartrains & a couplet
iambic pentameter (think heart beat!)
abab/cdcd/efef/gg rhyme scheme
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,

So long lives this and this gives life to thee. Sonnet 18 A A B B C C D D E E F F G G Introduces Conflict Complicates the Conflict Further Complicates & Turnaround Resolves & Summarizes Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer's lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade

Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;

Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou growest: His PALMS are SWEATy, KNEES weak, ARMS are HEAVy
There's VOmit ON his SWEATer alREADy, mom's spaGHETTi
He's NERVous, but ON the SURFace he LOOKS calm and READy
To DROP BOMBS, but HE keeps ON forGETtin
What HE wrote DOWN, the WHOLE crowd GOES so LOUD
He OPens his MOUTH, BUT the WORDS won't come OUT
He's CHOKin, how EVeryBODy's JOKin NOW
The CLOCK'S run OUT, TIME'S up OVer, BLOah! Romeo and Juliet Sonnet
Blank Verse (unrhymed iambic pentameter)
