2 Sonnet 141 Sonnet 141 In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes, For they in thee a thousand errors note; But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise, Who in despite of view is pleased to dote; Nor are mine ears with thy tongue's tune delighted, Nor tender feeling, to base touches prone, Nor taste, nor smell, desire to be invited To any sensual feast with thee alone: But my five wits nor my five senses can Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee, Who leaves unsway'd the likeness of a man, Thy proud heart's slave and vassal wretch to be: Only my plague thus far I count my gain, That she that makes me sin awards me pain

3 10 Things I Hate About You Sonnet 141 (Derivative Version) I hate the way you talk to me, And the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, And the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick. (It even makes me rhyme.) I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh— Even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you— not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all. Sonnet 141 In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes, For they in thee a thousand errors note; But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise, Who in despite of view is pleased to dote; Nor are mine ears with thy tongue's tune delighted, Nor tender feeling, to base touches prone, Nor taste, nor smell, desire to be invited To any sensual feast with thee alone: But my five wits nor my five senses can Dissuade one foolish heart from serving thee, Who leaves unsway'd the likeness of a man, Thy proud heart's slave and vassal wretch to be: Only my plague thus far I count my gain, That she that makes me sin awards me pain about-you.html

4 What is a sonnet? Review Sonnet: 14 line poem that rhymes in a certain pattern A sonnet is a poem made up of three quatrains (in iambic pentameter) followed by a concluding couplet. It has a total of 14 lines with a rhyme scheme of abab, cdcd, efef, gg.

5 Shakespeare’s Sonnets Shakespeare wrote 154 sonnets. His sonnets are numbered, not titled. All are in iambic pentameter.

6 Shakespeare’s Sonnets Most of Shakespeare’s sonnets are speaking to a handsome young lord. Shakespeare advises and praises him. The other sonnets are speaking to or about Shakespeare’s mistress. She also became the young lord’s mistress. She is also referred to as a “dark lady,” meaning that her features (hair, eyes) are dark.

7 What goes in a sonnet? Review Quatrain: 4 lines grouped together by a certain rhyme pattern Couplet: 2 lines that rhyme Quatrain A quatrain is four lines of verse with this rhyme scheme: A-B-A-B, meaning that the first and third, and second and fourth lines rhyme. The QUATRAINS of the English sonnet present an idea, problem, or story.

16 Sonnet 29 When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries And look upon myself and curse my fate, Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd, Desiring this man's art and that man's scope, With what I most enjoy contented least; Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising, Haply I think on thee, and then my state, Like to the lark at break of day arising From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate; For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

17 Sonnet 29 - Modern When I’m in disgrace with everyone and my luck has deserted me, I sit all alone and cry about the fact that I’m an outcast, and bother God with useless cries, which fall on deaf ears, and look at myself and curse my fate, wishing that I had more to hope for, wishing I had this man’s good looks and that man’s friends, this man’s skills and that man’s opportunities, and totally dissatisfied with the things I usually enjoy the most. Yet, as I’m thinking these thoughts and almost hating myself, I happen to think about you, and then my condition improves—like a lark at daybreak rising up and leaving the earth far behind to sing hymns to God. For when I remember your sweet love, I feel so wealthy that I’d refuse to change places even with kings.
