Shall I compare thee to my mistress eyes?
Tonight, please write your response to the sonnet you did NOT memorize! In addition, however, you must respond to at least one comment on the sonnet that you did memorize.
So, if you memorized “Shall I Compare Thee,” you will comment on (analyze, etc.) to “My Mistress’ Eyes,” and respond to at least one classmate’s comment on “Shall I Compare Thee.” But, if you memorized “My Mistress’ Eyes,” you will comment on (analyze, etc.) to “Shall I Compare Thee,” and respond to at least one classmate’s comment on “My Mistress’ Eyes.”
Some questions to consider for your analysis:
- What patterns such as rhythm, rhyme, word choice or imagery, do you notice about your sonnet?
- What literary elements, such as simile, metaphor, alliteration, etc., do you notice and what effect do they have on the overall sonnet?
- What is the most important underlying message of your sonnet?
As always, you MUST provide specific evidence from your text, proofread your writing for spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Please also respond to at least one other comment in this thread.
