Transcript of sonnet 130

Sonnet 130 by William Shakespeare Background Stanza 1 Stanza 2 My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red then her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
But I no such roses I see in her cheeks,
And in some perfumes is there more delight
than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. Stanza 3 I love to hear her speak , yet well I know
that music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground. Stanza 4 (Couplet) And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare. Rhyme Scheme abab cdcd efef gg According to Shakespere Online, in this sonnet Shakespeare mocked Elizabethan
love poetry. He thought love was exaggerated and that was not how it was in reality. The person you had feelings for was perceived as flawless. The person does not have to be perfect in order for love to blossom or be real This poem is written
to the Dark Lady. The
problem is how his mistress
is normal, nothing unique about her. Also, how being normal is better than having eyes like the sun, hair like silk and rosy cheeks. 10 syllables = 5 feet
