Tonight, please write your response to the sonnets we looked at in class. We’re going to talk more about these two sonnets tomorrow, and you will choose one of them to memorize over break, but meanwhile, what are your thoughts so far? One idea for your response could be compare and contrast. How are they similar and how are they different?
Some more questions you may want 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.
