Interpretation eines englischsprachigen Gedichtes
- 4 Seiten (0,1 MB)
This sonnet is taken from the collection “Shakespeares Sonnets” (1609) which comprises 154 poems of the famous author and playwright.
Shakespeare’s sonnets are considered very modern, not only due to formal criteria (as addressing a man instead of a woman in sonnets 1-126), but also due to their topics (like jealousy, being walked out on, growing old etc.)
The lifetime of Shakespeare (1564-1616), which is known as the Elizabethan Age, is characterized by a pursuit of perfection that results from a fear of chaos. This can also be seen in the structure of the author’s work.Content: + The sonnet
