This paper examines and analyzes William Shakespeare's "Sonnet 73." It discusses the author's use of imagery and language, including rhyme and pausing, to provide a powerful emotional movement in the poem. The paper discusses the youth that is addressed in the poem and discusses who the youth could be referring to. The paper provides examples from the text.

From the Paper:

"Youth, like life, must be appreciated because it will end. But as we pass through life, we as human beings have the advantage of carrying with us the memories of the moments that moved us, so that we in a sense carry our youth with us always, and in saying goodbye to youth we also find out what we have after. The author is not saying there is nothing left, he is saying love is what you have left, and in facing the end of youth you also learn to love deeper or better, and have the experience that is uniquely human, to grow and mature, and keep passing through these metamorphoses that define our existence and give us the sense of being fully human."
