Transcript of Shakespearean Sonnets

Sonnet structure - Sonnets are written in the form called iambic pentameter
- Each line consists of 10 syllables
- The ten syllables are divided into five pairs called iambs or iambic feet
- Iambs are made of one unstressed syllable and the second one stressed
- An example of a iamb is you ARE (ARE is capitalized to show it is stressed)
- Shakespeare's sonnets had fourteen lines
- Sonnets had three quatrains and one couplet
- Rhyme scheme is abab, cdcd, efef, gg
- First twelve lines explained the conflict
- last two lines were the resolutions Sonnets of Shakespeare Shakespeare's sonnets -Sonnet #12 (example):
"When I do count the clock that tells the time,
And see the brave day sunk in hideous night;
When I behold the violet past prime,
And sable curls all silver'd o'er with white;
When lofty trees I see barren of leaves
Which erst from heat did canopy the herd,
And summer's green all girded up in sheaves
Borne on the bier with white and bristly beard,
Then of thy beauty do I question make,
That thou among the wastes of time must go,
Since sweets and beauties do themselves forsake
And die as fast as they see others grow;
And nothing 'gainst Time's scythe can make defence
Save breed, to brave him when he takes thee hence." Differences in sonnets by Sam Khateri, Ryan Martinez,

- Sonnet 126 had twelve lines
- Sonnet 145 was written in iambic tetrameter( not pentameter)
- Iambic tetrameter means there are four iambic feet
- Another meter of poetry was called trochaic tetrameter
- This is the opposite of iambic pentameter
- In this form, one stressed syllable was followed by one unstressed syllable
- Also, the form of iambic pentameter that is not rhymed is called blank verse R.M.M. Our own sonnet Sonnets are hard to make because they are,
Written in a confusing way to speak.
Sometimes you are left with a mental scar.
They are hard because the rhymes are unique.
They can be tricky, but at any rate,
Even so, sonnets are fun to create. N.J.K. R.M.M. Rhyme Scheme: ABABCC N.J.K J.A.K. R.M.M. S.W.K The bard. Music choice by Sam Khateri - He was the first to use sonets - they were not as deep as his plays -he made 154 sonets -151 were in correct format - though they were bouncy
