This paper discusses "Sonnet 35" by William Shakespeare and examines the poem's meaning as well as the poetic techniques and devices that were used to communicate and enrich that meaning. The paper maintains that "Sonnet 35" is very personal and in it the narrator feels guilt and appears to take some the blame for the things done against him.

From the Paper:

"The next line is about why the poet thinks he is at fault just as much as the youth. "For thy sensual fault I bring in sense" (9). Here the narrator is saying that he is taking the sins of the youth, which were just physical, and which stem from physical urges, and putting his mind to work on them. In other words, the youth has sinned from passion, not thinking, but following his urges or lust. The sin of the poet on the other hand is much more severe because his sin is that of the mind; it is well though out in advance, premeditated and intellectual." "
