Transcript of Copy of ~ Sonnet 98 ~ William Shakespeare ~

Sonnet 98 By: William Shakespeare THEME The theme of absence continues with Shakespeare's youthful days being gone. He is heartsick that he can no longer be as happy and cheerful as the youth he sees now. What does this Sonnet really mean? Sonnet 98 is the 2nd sonnet is a group known as Fair Youth (Sonnet 97-99). He speaks of missing his youth and longing for it to return. He describes how beautiful this spring is, and that even Saturn is cheerful. Today, we view Saturn as a planet. Back in Shakespeare's time, Saturn was known as a god, or spirit, that brings about sadness and gloominess to the people. The extraordinary change of Saturn being happy, implies this spring is wonderful. Shakespeare could not admire the beautiful flowers the way they deserved, because they reminded him too much of young life. Thinking of this put him back into his own winter. Poetical and/or Literary Devices From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April dress'd in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing
That heavy Saturn laugh'd and leap'd with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odor and in hue
Could make me any summer's story tell.
Or from their proud lap pluck them while they grew;
Nor did I wonder at the lily's white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight;
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seem'd it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play. Line 1: None Line 2: Alliteration. (proud, pied. Both start with P) Line 3: Consonance. (hath, youth, thing. TH sound) Line 4: Personification. (...Saturn laugh'd and leap'd)
Connotation. (Saturn is a planet. It is used as a god or spirit here. Line 5 & 6: Imagery (lay of birds, sweet smell of
flowers) Line 7: None Line 8: Consonance. (proud, lap, pluck. P sound) Line 9 & 10: Imagery. (...Lily's white, deep vermilion in the rose. Color of the flowers) Line 11: None Line 12: Metaphor. (comparing "you" to "those's pattern") Line 13: Imagery (winter) Line 14: Flashback (shadow could refer to the dream spoken of in the previous sonnet, Sonnet 97) A Little About Shakespeare William Shakespeare was baptized on April 26, 1564, in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. From roughly 1594 onward he was an important member of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men company of theatrical players. Written records give little indication of the way in which Shakespeare’s professional life molded his artistry. All that can be deduced is that over the course of 20 years, Shakespeare wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion and conflict. TPCASTT T: Sonnet 98 P: We were apart during the spring, when everything is young and happy, even sad Saturn. But, none of the beauty I saw near me could make me sympathize with my surroundings. I couldn't admire the lily or the rose, since they reminded me of you. And so, it still seemed winter to me, since you were gone. C: Saturn is an example. Our view of Saturn is a planet, whereas Shakespeare's was that of a god or spirit. A: The attitude in this sonnet is mainly sad, wishful, envious, & jealous. S: In the beginning, the mood is a little sad. The major shift comes earlier than normal, in the 5th line. From here it becomes more sad by emphasizing his state of yearning. T: Youthful Absence T: Missing ones own youth; Longing to be young again.
