I have long been fascinated by Shakespeare’s work one of my favorite sonnet from him is called sonnet 18. This poem has several meanings and as poet and writer myself i am quite intrigued by Shakespeare and how brilliant his work is. Sonnet 18 is my favorite sonnet because it has many metaphors and images through out the poem.
In his poem he describes a man comparing summer to his mistress. He uses description of nature and how they all relate to his affection for this one particular lady. The meaning if the poem is that though the seasons will change and the beauty of summer will be gone it wont fade away completely, but the beauty of the mistress will be seen and remembered just as summer will be remembered.
Shakespeare means that the mistress will not be forgotten as long as there are people who see the beauty of her. Shakespeare is writing about someone who is very much in love and how his mistress is as lovely or even more lovely than a summer’s day. This poem touches me deeply because the words are very strong and they speak for it’s self.
