Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Sonnet 18 by Shakespeare, What assumptions does the poet take to describe beauty. It needs to be at least 1500 words.
Assumptions of Beauty in Sonnet 18. The sonnet 18 of William Shakespeare justifies the procreations sonnets, which were explaining about love towards the youth that has been influencing the poet’s lifestyle largely. The theme of sonnet 18 was majorly focused on the diction of an eternal beauty that would live for a long time and would never die. To explain the unending beauty of the youth, the poet uses certain metaphors to explain the beauty of the youth. The poet starts the Sonnet with the use of an assumption that the youth can be compared with the attractiveness of a day in the summer season. “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.” (Shakespeare, 130)The poet in the above lines explains that the youth is more beautiful than the summer day and even has the perfectness better than the summer temperature. The poet noted that the days during summer season are not as beautiful as the youth for unpleasant temperature as well as windiness. The poet even proclaims that the summer’s beauty can change and become fragile, but the beauty of the youth is unchangeable and would last forever (Saylor Foundation, 1).The poet claims that the beauty of the nature even fades away and keeps on changing day by day. These changes happens either in a cyclical manner as a part of the nature or accidentally. On the other hand, the poet explained that eternal beauty of the youth possesses best characteristics of the beauty of the summer’s day and will never change or fade.
