Sample text

Clearly the poet is no longer concerned that the young man have a child to ensure the immortality of his beauty. Now, the poet’s own sonnets are the only security the youth needs to gain eternal worth. SONNET 61 The youth continues to present a variety of phantom images to the poet. Trying to settle on one authentic image, the poet cannot sleep because of the emotional turmoil caused by his obsession with the youth. Shapes and visions of the youth are the disembodied “shadows like to thee”—shadows that frustrate the poet and prevent him from concluding anything about the youth.

53 The antithesis in lines 9 through 12 is between the aging poet and the youth’s good looks. ” In other words, the young man currently is beautiful, but “parallels”—wrinkles—will eventually appear, as they have on the poet. ” Unlike the poet’s promise in Sonnet 19, this assurance does not include giving the young man eternal beauty. ” Clearly the poet is no longer concerned that the young man have a child to ensure the immortality of his beauty. Now, the poet’s own sonnets are the only security the youth needs to gain eternal worth.

The use of the word “love” may be confusing to readers, for “love” in this sonnet means at least three different things. ” Here, “my loves” refers to the poet’s possessions, both physical—the sonnets themselves—and emotional.
