2 Quatrain 1 My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips' red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.

3 Quatrain 1 Analysis Line 1: My mistress eyes arent bright Line 2: Her lips arent red Line 3: Her breasts are not white Line 4: Her hair is stringy and mangled

4 Quatrain 2 I have seen roses damasked, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks

5 Quatrain 2 Analysis Line 5: I have seen many types of roses together Line 6: But her face does not have the beauty of any type Line 7: She does not have a nice smell Line 8: Her breath does not smell sweet

6 Quatrain 3 I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground

7 Quatrain 3 Analysis Line 9: I love to listen to her voice but I know Line 10: That its sound is not as pleasing as music Line 11: I admit I never saw a goddess walk Line 12: But my mistress does not walk with grace

8 Couplet And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare.

9 Couplet Analysis Line 13: Though, the speaker swears his love is more unique Line 14: And no other woman can compare

10 Theme Loving someone despite their flaws Inner beauty is what matters In the poem, Shakespeare emphasizes the characteristics that his mistress or love does not possess. Ultimately, he looks beyond her physical features and appreciates her inner beauty. These common themes are expressed throughout his sonnet continuously. My mistress eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips red;. This line demonstrates William Shakespeare's initial insults towards his mistress appearance. And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare. As any she belied with false compare. This couplet exemplifies that Shakespeare developed a change of heart and recognized the womans inner beauty.

11 Placement and Importance of Sonnet 130s Couplet The couplet plays an important role in the sonnet, giving the reader a final lasting impression. In sonnet 130, the couplet establishes an overall loving tone as opposed to the beginning lines which appear to be very critical.
