Transcript of Shakespeare Poem

"Let me not to the marriage of true minds" thine
Experts: Brief Biography Kasey Powell
Erik Sissine
Jesse Shimer "Shakespeare’s poems and plays have altered the course of European and World literature."

"The exact date of William Shakespeare’s birth is not known. The date is often listed as the twenty-third of April 1564. "

"Stratford-upon-Avon is William Shakespeare’s natal city."

At eighteen years old, he married Anne Hathaway. Hathaway was eight years the senior of Shakespeare

Lord Chamberlain’s Men --- King’s Men

"The most intriguing theory is also the one that lacks the most evidence." Less Accredited Facts * Shakespearean Terminology
Vocabulary Impediments:A hindrance or obstruction in doing something (biblical reference of marriage vows.) Hark anon! Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments; love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O, no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to ever wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved. Dost thou knowist the meaning? a paraphrase Let us explain... William Shakespeare Ever-fixed mark: a sea-mark like a beacon or lighthouse that provides mariners with safe bearings.

Tempests: A violent windy storm.

Wand'ring bark: lost ship/wandering ship

the Star: presumably the North Star

bending sickle's compass: *verbal explanation*

edge of doom: brink of death/ Judgement Day If two people, of honest intentions and good hearts, wanted to marry, I have no objection.
Real love is not a love that changes when circumstances may change
Or a love that changes when one of the persons may change
O no! It is a lighthouse
That endures the most violent, and windy of storms and is never effected.
True love is like the north star to a lost ship, the saving grace to a lost life.
And like love, a ship can be measured by its height and weight, but it's true worth will never be able to be measured with such devices.
Love is not at Time's mercy even though physical beauty is within his reach
True love is not something easily effected by the passing of day and weeks, but can hold true till "your last day."
If one were to prove to me that all of this is wrong
Then I take back all that I have ever written, an no man has truly loved. Seventy-five per cent of the words are monosyllables
