The eight sonnets included in your reading assignment depict different aspects of love.
The eight sonnets included in your reading assignment depict different aspects of love. One way of categorizing the kind of love expressed in each poem is to situate the poem within the following schematic:
|Sprititual Love||Idealistic Love|
Notice that these types are arranged dichotomously, as diagonally opposing pairs (sprititual as the opposite of physical, etc.).
I would like you to choose four sonnets (of the eight assigned) to discuss in your analytical response (400 words minimum). Each poem you chooose should represent one type of love. In other words, you should choose one poem that you think expresses Spritual Love, one that expresses Realistic Love, another that expresses Idealistic Love, and a fourth that represents Realistic Love. Some poems may express a combination of types, but one type will emerge as the most dominant. In your response, explain how each poem represents a different type or expression of love. Refer directly to the words/images in the poems to support your reasoning.
