Sonnet 18

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,

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.

Commentary

Sonnet 18 is one of Shakespeare's most famous. It's very straightforward in meaning. The tone of this piece is passionate, admiring, and romantic from just reading "Thou art more lovely and temperate". The theme is love is forever, the speaker is saying that the lover will eternally be their heart, regardless of any kind of choices. The sonnet is describing a special someone and how radiant they are like the sun is in the middle of summer. The speaker must love have a strong love for the person who it's about, because the words are deep and perpetual. It somewhat relates to my location because the speaker has a theater where his famous plays were acted out so it kind of relates to the location. This piece is effective because it is about undying love for someone, and everybody deserves a chance at love.
