shall i compare thee to a summers day sonnet 18 william shakespeare
Shall I compare thee to a summers day Sonnet 18 William Shakespeare
  • By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed.
  • But thy eternal summer shall not fade
  • Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
  • Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
  • When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
  • So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
  • So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
shall i compare thee to a summers day sonnet 18 william shakespeare1
Shall I compare thee to a summers day Sonnet 18 William Shakespeare
  • Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
  • Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
  • Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
  • And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
  • Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
  • And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
  • And every fair from fair sometime declines,
hamlet a play within a play
Hamlet- A play within a play
  • But, woe is me, you are so sick of late,
  • So far from cheer and from your former state,
  • That I distrust you. Yet, though I distrust,
  • Discomfort you, my lord, it nothing must.
feminine ending
Feminine ending
  • In Hamlets famous speech ‘to be or not to be that is the question’. Shakespeare uses ‘Feminine Ending’. This is the mixing up of the rhythm.
  • He did this by adding an extra unstressed beat at the end of a line to emphasize a character’s sense of contemplation.
  • Shakespeare also reverses the order of the stresses in some iambi to help emphasize certain words or ideas. This is called Inversion.
to be or not to be
To Be Or not to be?
  • To be, or not to be: that is the question:
  • Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
  • The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
  • Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
  • And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
  • No more; and by a sleep to say we end
