Shall I compare thee?
Tonight, please explain how memorizing your sonnet changed your understanding of it. In other words, you already wrote a blog explaining what you understood about both sonnets, but tonight you should explain how the experience of memorization and recital changed that understanding. What new insights have you had? What do you now understand? In addition, however, you must respond to at least one comment on the sonnet that you did memorize.
Some questions to consider for your analysis:
- What literary elements, such as simile, metaphor, alliteration, word choice, 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.
