Transcript of SONNET 116
The poem is about love, not between people but the idea and the force.
The poet begins by stating he should not stand in the way of true love. Love cannot be true if it changes for any reason. Love is supposed to be constant, through any difficulties. In the sixth line, a nautical reference is made, alluding that love is much like the north star to sailors. Love should also not fade with time; instead, true love lasts forever. (not from Wikipedia)
wrote in 1960. <---legit (1690)
Shakespeare wrote many
sonnets but 116 is one of his
most well known.
Shakespeare was born in 1564
he as we all know was a playwright,
thespian and actors.
Sonnet 116 was published in 1609
And follows Shakespeare's usual
sonnet writing form
Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! It is an ever-fixèd mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
This line displas shakespeare's opinion of Courtly love 'he doesn't approve'
This line is telling the poem, what its about and his philosophy; Love.
This line is showing the poem's ideas again
"love's not time's fool" portrays love as a force
and not a sense/feeling
he believes this so much that he would wager his
The Short version:
Showing love as a force
The Poem is largely about love as a power
and how it works outside the box in a way.
if you think about love inside the box it is in
the way of a connection between people
and them being in love.
but Shakespeare reflects on this by saying
the polar opposite and claiming love is not
a mutual feeling or a connection but that it
is a universal thing that always was and
always will be, like love began with time
and so on.
