Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare Analysis

Shakespeare often presents as language that is too confusing to even start trying to understand, but this doesn't always have to be the case. Whether you are studying for your school or university exams, or just picking up Shakespeare's sonnet out of interest, in this course I take you through a simple process to understand what Shakespeare is saying. ——In this course we cover: —— • The context of the time • About Shakespeare and his life • Basics of sonnets and their construction • Technical vocabulary (definitions, how to use and more!) • Line-by-line-analysis of the sonnet • Live whiteboard so you can see poem analysis in real time ——Who is this course for?—— • Students studying Shakespeare and Sonnet 116 • Anyone interested in learning more about Sonnet 116 To test your knowledge your task is to write an A4 sheet (approx. 500 words typed) answering the question: "What kind of love does Shakespeare present in Sonnet 116?" Think about: • How love is characterised (and personified) • The use of imagery and language • Influence of the context on the poem • Would the type of love change depending on whether the sonnet was addressed to a man or a women? • What is Shakespeare trying to say about love
