  1. John was born in London, England on January 22, 1572.
  2. John spent most of his life in London and spent about a few weeks in prison.
  3. Johns education or training he had was that he was a lawyer, priest and a satirist but while he was in collage he started to write poems.

  3. dont know
  4. what is signifacate about this poem is that is complex like it's writer
  5. I find this piece very interesting because the reader expect the storm that the poet is talking about to calm down but the storm doesn't ever calm down. I like that because it is a poem that is serendipitous which is very interesting and not boring to read.
  6. This poem repersents skeptisim because people expect the poem to end well be it doesn't so it makes people question why it didn'nt end well.
