Lego House by Ed Sheeran vs. Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare
Transcript of Lego House by Ed Sheeran vs. Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare
Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare
By Stephanie Marcum
Comparison in Speaker
both are male voices
so similarities and differences are based on gender roles
in the song, he wants to provide for her, which is usually a male instinct, as comparing it to a female, like a "damsel in distress", where she is the one who's in trouble and needs to be saved or rescued
also, similarities of the song and poem is pursuit/courtship
in the song, he wants to keep trying to make things better for them and provide for her
in the poem, he wants her last forever, but the difference is in the poem he's more in power because he's the writer and makes her immortal, as long as people keep reading the poem, she will last forever
Comparison in Tone and Mood
Tone of the song is hopeful
"If things go wrong we can knock it down"
"If things go right we can frame it and put you on a wall"
Tone of the poem is admiring, affectionate, and romantic
"Thou art more lovely and more temperate"
The mood of the song is optimistic
''If you're broken I will mend you and I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on now"
"I'm going to pick up the pieces and build a Lego house"
The mood is dreamy, awestruck, and confident
"So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, so long lives this and this gives life to thee"
Comparison in Theme/Main Idea
The theme of the song is promises of love, devotion, and commitment, forgiveness and promising to do better, and protecting each other.
The theme of the poem is love never dies
Some similarities are the theme both include love and always loving that person no matter what happens or what each other goes through, and devotion
Some differences of both is in the poem it doesn't mention him protecting her or saying that he'll do better like in the song, and in the song it doesn't mention making her live forever, like in the poem.
Comparison in Rhyme
the song has repetitive rhyme
"If you're broken I will mend you and I'll keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on
" and "And out of all these things I've done I think I love you better now,
The poem has end rhyme and internal rhyme
Lines 1 and 3, "Shall I compare thee to a summers
?//Rough winds do shake the darling buds of
line 2, "Thou art
Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare
playwright and poet
became famous in the 19th century
born at Stratford-upon-Avon, England
remains the only writer whose every line has been studied and interpreted by historians, scholars, and students
comparing his beloved to a summers day, meaning his beloved is more lovely and even-tempered, but also isn't that great because it's too short, hot, and windy, shaking the buds of May, meaning that their relationship is shaken by "rough winds" or going through problems and everything beautiful eventually fades away
then towards the end, his beloved and the beloved's beauty will not fade away and will last forever, as long as people keep reading the poem
Lego House by Ed Sheeran
started to become famous in 2010, and at the end of 2010 he was noticed as one of the best unsigned artists in the country
born in Halifax, West Yorkshire and grew up in Framlingham, Suffolk
debuted on November 11, 2011
it's about to keep trying, promises of love and devotion, and that the person will do better
Comparison in Tone and Mood (Continued)
Similarities is they're both positive
Differences is the mood, the song is more optimistic than the poems, because in the song, it's talking about making it better and keep trying, and in the poem it doesn't mention that. Also, the song has a more hopeful theme than the poem, because in the song if things go wrong then they can try to fix it or start over, and in the poem it's more confident when it mentions at the end that she will last forever as long as people read the poem.
