The paper asserts that Shakespeare is just as unrivaled in his sonnets rhyme, rhythm, melody and sound as he is with plays. The paper examines Shakespeare's sonnets 30 and 62 and highlights the theme of individuals looking back on their lives to see how they have succeeded or failed. The paper maintains that people continue to struggle with the same questions and self-doubts and it is Shakespeare's uncanny knack of placing that humanness in words that everyone can appreciate.

From the Paper:

"Although William Shakespeare is well known for his plays, his sonnets have also been greatly appreciated and enjoyed for hundreds of years. Traditional sonnets are fourteen-line lyric poems, written in iambic pentameter or lines ten syllables long, with accents falling on every second syllable. They originated in Italy and were first introduced into England during the Tudor period by Sir Thomas Wyatt and Henry Howard. The collection of Shakespeare's Sonnets consists of 154 short poems. These were published, together with a poem called "A Lover's Complaint," in 1609."
