Sonnet 116: Let me not to the marriage of true minds Analysis



Author: poem of William Shakespeare Type: poem Views: 78

Sponsored Links


Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixèd mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me proved,
    I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

this poem is about love isn\'t in the starting and how it cannot be adjusted against time. it seems to be that someone has come between the love and is trying to take his love away. during towards the end he says if love doesnt exist then i am wrong.

HE wants to explain how important love is and the value of it which no can eva measure. True love can never be defeated by obstacles or any other misunderstanding and if that ever happens then it wasnt true love at all.Love is not waste of time, its a feeling which is better then any feeling in the world. true love never ends one day everything might end but love it is impossible for man kind to stop loving its part of nature our lives there is love or no love there is no middle to it and if there is it was not love but a thought which must have misguided by ur brain.shakespeare says that wateva he is saying if its incorrect then he is a lier and has never writtn the truth and no men in this world has ever loved...true meaning of love is jux love nothing between jux 2 humans end of all the feelings one feeling which can never end LOVE1

Shakespeare is describing the type of love that the Greeks would define as eros. It is the deepest connection any two humans can possibly have. It is a stronghold covenant that never wavers and only gets stronger with time and tribulation. It is 'an ever-fixed mark.' That doesn't sound like the words of an man that is unsure. This is a man that is in love.
There are many types of love amongst man. There is the type that we share with people in the community, in the workplace, at school. There is the type of love we share with friends and family. Then there is this deeper love that only Shakespeare can communicate so eloquently.

This is an amazing representation of the actual grasp that Shapespear had of love. He really knew what wa sgoing on, he cound mould words as a potter moulds pots. The poem expresses the duration of love and that it is an undying, everlasting thing.

He is explaining true marraige of the minds, that there are flaws in love and love is not one that alters to find that bending in the relationship will remove oneself from love. Also true love is never a fixed love. Also love is never perfect to the point that it is never shaken, sometimes love is shaken. it is the star, meaning the bliss to every bark meaning the calm before the storm sort of speak. Noone knows how valuable it is, but a man's true dignity "height" definately counts. Love does not alter time, the time will end for certain loving being done. though his rosy cheecks meaning though it may be bliss to cuddle in the flesh of someone's say arms or so on, the time must come where it will end. Love does not change from he hours of the world and stays strong even when things may be at stake. But if william shakespeare is wrong, hes never written the truth and no man has ever loved.

william wants to tell that love is an ever lasting emotion that anyone can feel and felt it is unconditional so any obstacles can be beaten by the two lovers who are really in love with one another.he also said in the latter part that if he's wrong then no man ever loved anyone and someone.(",)

shakespeare basically defines wat true love is.the essence of true love cannot be seen but infact felt around two lovers.true love never changes-no matter wat the reason maybe.physical beauty or a person's attitude shall not affect the love of a person. love is a strong force that stays forever...either u end or the world ends...love stays there as a giude to lost ships like a north star...no matter wat the situations may be and how many difficulties there may be love stays .we can never really noe the value of true love.it can never be measured...its infinite...no one can describe it in words....and shakespeare believes tht if he is not right abt love then no man has either never loved or he has never known wat true love is.

This poem is about how love is eternal. He is saying that when two people truly love each other they will not allow obstacles to get in their way or leave the relationship. If they do it wasn't true love. He also uses various nautical refrences to say that love is a guiding force for lost souls that does not bend when a strom or difficulty arises. Love is like the North Star that guides wandering ships. He also writes that love cannot be lost to time and can only be destroyed in death. Love does not seem to be physical in this sonnet. He says love cannot be destroyed with the loss of baeuty and that it is a marriage of minds. He ends this by saying that if he is wrong than love does not really exist.

It is commonly interpreted as the view that true love is unchanging, despite changing circumstances, such as the loss of beauty with old age--or even the loss of the other's affection. In this sense, the sonnet can be seen to be a commentary not only on romantic love, but on unconditional love, which does not depend upon reciprocation for its continuation. It may even be taken to suggest that true love survives betrayal and infidelity, or any other action on the part of the beloved which might tend to "remove" the love. If so, then it implies the long-suffering and forgiving nature of genuine love. These implications elevate the sonnet from the realm of merely romantic literature into the expression of a moral ideal. This is so whether or not the sentiments or ideals expressed in the sonnet are actually those of the author.

i think shakespeare is trying to show that love can only happen once and that when it does it shouldn't be altered , yet it does and when one interferes in anothers love then that person shouldn't remove love. It should be true. Shakespeare basically states the theme of the poem at the beginning by saying what love isn't.

I think shakespeare is trying to express alot in this poem. He tries to express how man can only love once. Furthermore, shakespeare continues to mention the fact that love is hard and worthy.
