Sonnet 138 Analysis
Imagery
Pic Collage
Intelligence- use of the word "lie" as a pun

Emotion- Eros love
Visual Imagery:
"Therefore I lie with her and she with me"
Sonnet 138
When my love swears that she is made of truth
I do believe her, though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutor'd youth,
Unlearned in the world's false subtleties.
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although she knows my days are past the best,
Simply I credit her false speaking tongue:
On both sides thus is simple truth suppress'd.
But wherefore says she not she is unjust?
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O, love's best habit is in seeming trust,
And age in love loves not to have years told:
Therefore I lie with her and she with me,
And in our faults by lies we flatter'd be.
Speaker and Setting
Speaker:
An old man that's in a relationship with a young woman
Situation
The old man wonders why his
mistress wont come out and
say shes lying to him, but in
the end he doesn't care
"But wherefore says she not she is unjust?"

"O love’s best habit is in seeming trust"
Setting:
the old man's mind and thoughts
"But wherefore says she not she is unjust?"
Further Analysis
-The love is temporary, he uses it as a reassurance that he is still worthy of love at his old age
- The guy is so emotionally detached to the relationship , that he does not care/ignores his mistress's lying and deceit

"I do believe her, though I know she lies"
-The guy is insecure about his age

"Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young"
"Therefore I lie with her and she with me"
