Sonnet 129: Th' expense of spirit in a waste of shame Analysis



Author: poem of William Shakespeare Type: poem Views: 44

Th' expense of spirit in a waste of shame
Is lust in action; and, till action, lust
Is perjured, murderous, bloody full of blame,
Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust,
Enjoyed no sooner but despisèd straight,
Past reason hunted, and no sooner had
Past reason hated as a swallowed bait
On purpose laid to make the taker mad.
Mad in pursuit, and in possession so;
Had, having, and in quest to have, extreme;
A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe,
Before a joy proposed; behind, a dream.
    All this the world well knows, yet none knows well
    To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.

.: :.

“The Expense of Spirit in a Waste of Shame”, portrays a vivid picture of sin and lustful desires. Shakespeare describes the sinful action in a clear format, which can be seen in the very title of this piece. Placing your whole heart or expensing your spirit to a sinful action will lead you into a waste of shame, a deserted dry state that is lonely and without a friend to turn to. You will be: perjured, murderous, bloody, full of blame, savage, extreme, rude, cruel, and not to trust.
Even if at first the sin looks pleasant and even if you enjoy doing it, you will most definitely not enjoy the outcome. Sin has consequences that are terrible for us to even imagine.
Eventually you will find that you are following that sin without reason or control. You feel as if you need it otherwise you cannot survive. Soon, you will hate it as you continue on in the sin, miserable and bitter.
As often the case with sin, once you start you cannot stop. It does not matter how hard you try, it is impossible for you to stop sinning by yourself. The sin will eventually drag you down to hell where you will burn in fire for eternity.
This is the state that mankind is in at the moment. Everyone in this whole world will go to hell if they simply try to stop the sin, because they cannot. However, God is merciful, and although we deserve to perish, He sent His Son to save us. Christ died on the cross for our sins, and now His chosen, fellow Christians, will be saved from the ruins of hell.

The use of language, it seems to me, is very modern. the short bursts of words reminds me of Dylan\'s Subterranean Homesick Blues.
i particularly like the last two lines. He doesn\'t end by predictably warning us to avoid naughty impulses, but instead offers that they are part of life, for better or worse.
