Despite the negative connotations of his mistress, Shakespeare speaks a true woman and true love. The sonnet is a "how-to" guide to love. This poem speaks of a love that is truer than denoting a woman's physical perfection or her "angelic voice." As those traits are all ones that will fade with time, Shakespeare exclaims his true love by revealing her personality traits that caused his love. Shakespeare suggests that the eyes of the woman he loves are not twinkling like the sun: "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun" (1).
He moves away from the playful & sexually teasing tone to a more affectionate and loving tone. I believe this is to show a sense of admiration for the woman (For, lady, you deserve this state Nor would I love at lower rate) The language used in the second stanza, together with some strong imagery changes the tone dramatically. The tone is now chilled dark at in a way aggressive ('my echoing song; then worms shall try That long preserved virginity and your quaint honour turned to dust.'). This brings the woman who he is speaking to back from the fantasy world which he talks of in the first stanza, and back to reality. He reminds the woman that life does not last forever and they must make the most of their lives.
. . (1097-1101). His statement of love is so profound that Palamon is not even sure if Emelye is a woman or a goddess, but is sure of her "fairness" and beauty. Arcite also loves Emelye and ridicules Palamon's thoughts about Emelye being a goddess, he states, "Though woost nat yet now / Wheiter she be a womman or goddesse"(1156-1157).
The hearing community, mostly views Deaf people with a half-empty perspective. Most hearing people feel bad for the Deaf because their incapability to hear.

Shakespeare is saying that he loves to hear her speak even though music has more of a pleasant tone than she. One can interpret that despite the woman is not having a stunning or melodic voice he would still prefer her voice over music. His perception of her beauty surpasses what others consider beautiful. This is shown again in his ending couplet of the sonnet. “And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare / As any she belied with false compare”
Although many people find flaws in others, there always comes a time where one seems to let go of these imperfections and replace the defects with love Sonnet 130 is a unique love poem in which William Shakespeare describes the women he claims to love, in many critical ways. Although the first twelve lines describe the women to be distasteful and vile, the last two lines create a shift in which Shakespeare explains that despite her unsavory ways, he still loves her. Shakespeare illustrates that there is not a perfect person in the world, but that one day everyone will be able to find someone who will look past their faults and love them the way they are. Shakespeare’s poem “Sonnet 130” describes that love is looking past the flaws of someone in which
For the first three grueling months, I thought it would never be over because I hated speaking in front of people. It would be days where I would bust out in sweats and then there are days where the only time I was opening my mouth was to vomit, then it will be days where I could get through a whole speech she gave me to recite but I would always look down at my feet. I felt that I would never be able to face my fear but Mrs. Johnson believe in me and kept working with me because she not only wanted to see me graduate but she knew that I was going to college and in college, you will have to do those heart wrenching oral presentation pretty much every year and she wanted me to
I remember one time I was able to abstain from profanity for about a week. However, once I started using profanity again, I realized that trying to stop was a lost cause. I have put a lot of thought into this assignment and I have frequently thought about what will be difficult about it; however, have not been able to identify anyth... ... middle of paper ... ...e accountable for when I do use profanity. This experiment will be difficult for me because I feel like I have already previously spoken about adding my boyfriend to the assignment as an additional support. This will be beneficial because he will be able to congratulate me when I have a “profanity free day” and encourage me when I mess up (because I’m sure I will).
He says her eyes are nothing like the sun; her lips are coral, not red; her hair is like black wires; her breath reeks and though he “love to hear her speak, yet I know/ that music hath a far more pleasing sound” (greenbalt.550.9-10). He thinks his love is rare and “as any she belied with false compare” (greenbalt.550.15). The question “why he is still with her? If he sees so many faults in her beauty “ raises in every reader’s mind and the answer is quite simple. The speaker knows his mistress doesn’t have those prized features and that she is not perfect but he still loves her more than anyone else.
It becomes clear that, for a Victorian woman, the use of art as a form of self-exploration and self-articulation constitutes a rebellion. Correspondingly, Mademoiselle Reisz’s use of music situates her as a nonconformist and a sympathetic confidante for Edna’s awakening. The difference Edna detects between the piano-playing of Mademoiselle Reisz and Adèle Ratignolle seems also to testify to Edna’s emotional growth. She reaches a point in her awakening in which she is able to hear what a piece of music says to her, rather than idly inventing random pictures to accompany the sounds. Thus, music, or Edna’s changing reactions to it, also serves to help the reader locate Edna in her development.
