When I Consider How My Light is Spent

Legacies in Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley and When I Consider How My Light Is Spent by John Milto

- ... It is first important to mention that the author of this poem, John Milton, suffered from glaucoma and eventually went blind. Due to this information, it can be implied that Milton’s gradual loss of sight was a source of inspiration for this sonnet and that Milton is the speaker of the poem. Therefore the word “light” (Milton, 1) can metaphorically take on multiple meanings such as his talent (as it is the light that he brings to the world) or his vision (as one goes blind the world becomes increasingly darker and the ability to see light decreases)....   [tags: poems, after death, god]
