Sonnet 18 Sonnet 18 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 dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. Love, Time, and the Natural World Sonnet 18 has many underlying themes hidden inside of it
Love: what seems to be like a natural love poem to a friend at first, turns into boasting for the poetry and himself
Time: Shakespeare displays how poetry is a time machine itself. Even though everything dies, the writing that is passed from generation to generation will last forever
Man and the Natural World: the poem itself is concerned with the inescapable event that is death and the many changing seasons of the world By: Michael Dang and Adi Miller Who is Shakespeare? Literal Meanings The beginning of the poem talks about the changing of the seasons
Also, Shakespeare touches on the point of what may be beautiful now, won't always be beautiful in the end.
As long as written words are read, they will be remembered and cherished; Shakespeare alludes this to "living for eternity." Symbolism in the Sonnet Shakespeare takes his friend's physical beauty and then compares it to a summer's day, which doesn't happen very often.
Since the poet's friend is immortal, death will never get his bragging grasp. Literary Devices Shakespeare's Style Shakespeare had his own way of writing his sonnets which made him unique.

"Every fair from fair sometimes declines"- all beauty diminishes Attitude:The attitude is very honest because all the points Shakespeare makes can happen Shift:In the first three line and last six lines, Shakespeare is very happy and confident with his words. In lines three to eight the poets attitude is very sad Theme:People will crumble as will time, but as long as someone is willing to remember the past and keep it in his heart, than time is infinite.
