Being Emo Shakespeare Style

| | Comments (0)

I'm talking about Shakespeare's sonnet #30. Now that I have a little more experience with his sonnets, I can do a better close reading.

"But if the while I think on thee (dear friend)
All losses are restored, and sorrows end" (lines 13-14)

The beginning of the poem involves the narrator being very depressed and remembering all the terrible things about his life. For that reason, I can't help but picture a gray and rainy day. The two lines above end the sonnet on a happy note and so the rain has stopped and things are looking better.
