This paper discusses Shakespeare, who usually known for his plays, also wrote over one hundred and fifty sonnets. The paper takes a look at how, in some of these sonnets, like the beautiful and ethereal Sonnet 18, "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?" we find Shakespeare following the Petrarchan model of regarding the beloved as the Donna Angelicata. However, in Sonnet 130, "My Mistress' Eyes are Nothing Like the Sun," Shakespeare clearly moves away from the earlier model and presents a lover that is both more realistic, and human.
