Description:

This paper analyzes Shakespeare's comparison of a woman to nature in Shakespeare's "Sonnet 18" and looks at the various poetic techniques he uses to illustrate his point.

From the Paper:

"Shakespeare made a clever decision when he chose to compare a woman to a summer day. Both concepts instill pleasant images in the mind, and the poem draws parallels between humans and nature in a unique way. One usually thinks of nature as all-powerful, and a dominant force in the universe. However, this work demonstrates the flaws in this force, and how a woman can be superior. By lacing the poem with striking metaphors, and strong images, and leveraging rhyme, meter, and balance, Shakespeare illustrates his point well."
