Sonnet 130

William Shakespeare

Petrarch

DOB20 July 1304

petrarch
Petrarch
  • Francesco Petrarch (1304-74) was responsible for establishing certain ideas about love-relationships. He wrote more than 300 sonnets addressed to an idealized lady named Laura, with whom he had never even had a conversation. These sonnets were enormously popular, and poets in Shakespeare's day were still using Petrarch's sonnets as models. One key Petrarchan notion is that the lover's love for a beautiful woman is not returned and he suffers as if from a bad flu (freezes and burns).

How could a guy fall in love with a person that they had only ever seen once, in a church?

Can you remember any characters of mine that may be a criticism of this kind of love?

slide5

Romeo as a "Petrarchan lover" when he talks about Rosaline - he is "sick" and "sad," and "from love's weak childish bow she lives uncharmed."

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
  • Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
  • If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
  • If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
  • I have seen roses damask'd, red and white,
  • But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
  • And in some perfumes is there more delight
  • Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
  • I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
  • That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
  • I grant I never saw a goddess go;
  • My mistress, when she walks, treads on the /ground:
  • And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
  • As any she belied with false compare.
iambic pentameter
Iambic Pentameter
  • baBOOM / baBOOM / baBOOM / baBOOM / baBOOM.
  • Here are some examples from the sonnets:
  • When I / do COUNT / the CLOCK / that TELLS / the TIME (Sonnet 12)
  • When IN / dis GRACE / with FOR / tune AND / men’s EYESI ALL / a LONE / be WEEP / my OUT/ cast STATE (Sonnet 29)
  • Shall I / com PARE/ thee TO / a SUM / mer’s DAY? Thou ART / more LOVE / ly AND / more TEM / per ATE (Sonnet 18)
  • Shakespeare’s plays are also written primarily in iambic pentameter, but the lines are unrhymed and not grouped into stanzas.
