This paper is an explication of "Sonnet 31" by Petrarch. The paper analyzes the rhetorical devices used in the poem.

From the Paper:

"The best way to fully grasp the meaning in a poem seems to be to look at it line by line and discern the significance of the various rhetorical devices that comprise it. Sonnets are a unique case specifically because the very structure of a sonnet tends to induce the structure of its meaning. Thus the three quatrains and se stet that comprise the sonnet can be looked at individually, as well as for what they impart to the poem as a whole."
