From the Paper:

"The sonnets of Shakespeare, commonly mistaken as odes of love to a young woman, can be divided into three main sections, all of which contain the contextual message of love, praise, and advice to a beautiful young man and his journey into his older years. The introduction (1-17) speaks of the beauty of the young man; he is so good looking, so worthy, that he must procreate to sustain such a superior lineage. It can be said that this fair young lad "grows up" in sonnets 18 to 125, wherein the author boasts that the man will live eternally in these words. Though not actually considered a story in the linear fashion, the Sonnets weave an intricate pattern of repetition and contradiction that suggests the beauty of life and the pratfalls than invariably must be met."
