Comparing the Sonnets of Petrarchan and Shakespearean in Style, Structure and Subject Approach

- Shakespeare and Petrarch, two poets popular for their contributions on the issue of love, both tackle the subject of their work through sonnet, yet there are key contrasts in their style, structure, and in the way, each approaches their subjects. Moreover, it is clear that in "Sonnet 130," Shakespeare in fact parodies Petrarch's style and thoughts as his storyteller describes his mistress, whose "eyes are in no way as the sun" (Shakespeare 1918). Shakespeare seems, by all accounts, to mock the exaggerated descriptions expanded throughout Petrarch’s piece by giving an English poem portraying the speaker’s love in terms that are characteristic of a flawed woman not a goddess....   [tags: classic, sonnetes]

Forces act upon things making them subject to others such as society, law, institutions, religion, self-expectations, etc. Those able to inflict those forces on others successfully without retaliation hold all the power. However, power does corrupt, there are rare occasions where power remains completely absolute, in fact it’s almost impossible.

Goer says children “are initiated in their early years to love (the concept of sex); But they no longer see their grandfather and express astonishment, they are told that he is resting in a beautiful garden among the flowers” (Walter, p.92-3, 1991)....   [tags: tabooed subject]
