2 Shakespeare, Sonnet 23 As an unperfect actor on the stage Who with his fear is put besides his part, Or some fierce thing replete with too much rage, Whose strength's abundance weakens his own heart. So I, for fear of trust, forget to say [5 The perfect ceremony of love's rite, And in mine own love's strength seem to decay, O'ercharged with burden of mine own love's might. O, let my books be then the eloquence And dumb presagers of my speaking breast, [10 Who plead for love and look for recompense More than that tongue that more hath more express'd. O, learn to read what silent love hath writ: To hear with eyes belongs to love's fine wit.

3 Summary Describing himself as “unperfect” (1) in his ability to express the forms and “ceremon[ies]” (6) of love, the poet pleads with his beloved to read his love in his poetry, which more perfectly expresses what he cannot. But what about the curious pattern of images? What does the poem do that summary cannot?

9 What is the effect of this play of part and whole? Shakespeare could be suggesting that only in poetry—or creative expression—can love be perfected. “Perfection” is an illusion, something that the lovers create. Something that the poet and reader create, together?
