    i got to re wright this but it gos to be the same I picked William Shakespeare because i think he is the best writer in his time! "Sonnet 73" by William Shakespeare contains many metaphors to form a descriptive image. Shakespeare used conceits, which are "fanciful extended metaphors" (567), used in love poems of earlier centuries. Shakespeare used these beautifully in "Sonnet 73." A metaphor is a "brief, compressed comparison that talks about one thing as if it were another" (554). Shakespeare expresses three major metaphors in this sonnet. The first is about age, the second about death, and of course, love follows. These three metaphors create an enjoyable poem. The first metaphor that Shakespeare uses is that of a tree in the fall. He compares himself to the tree by saying 'That time of year thou mayst in me behold when yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang upon those boughs which shake against the cold". Shakespeare compares his aging self to the aging tree. Just as the tree is losing its' leaves, Shakespeare could be losing his hair. Just as the tree is getting brittle, Shakespeare bones are getting old and feeble. Most importantly, Shakespeare doesn't say that he is actually going through this downfall, but that his lover perceives it in him. Another metaphor in this sonnet is the comparison of death to nightfall, "In me thou sees the twilight of such day" (568). He continues, "Which by and by black night doth take away, death's second self, that seals up all rest" (568). Shakespeare perfectly describes death as the fading of a bright day to a dark black night. The third, and final, metaphor is when Shakespeare is comparing himself to the fire. Shakespeare beautifully states, "In me thou sees the glowing of such fire that on the ashes of his youth lie, as the deathbed whereon it must expire, consumed with that which it was nourished by" (568). . As the fire is dying so is Shakespeare. In conclusion, Shakespeare combines these three ideas in a two line follow-up, "This thou perceive, which makes thy love more strong, to love that well which thou must leave ere long" (568). In this he relates all three objects, aging, death, and love, to each other. He is saying that one must enjoy love when he has it because it soon grows old and must die. He is also making the point that his lover is a good person for staying with him in his old age.

    Compare Forms of Lyric Poetry Compare two different forms of lyric poetry from this unit, and show how the form of each helps to express the speaker’s thoughts and feelings. • Review the different forms of lyric poetry from this unit—sonnet, haiku, and free verse.

Provide specific examples from each poem. • Compare and contrast the structures of the two poems, explaining how the patterns of rhythm or rhyme affect the overall mood and feeling each expresses. • Finally, evaluate the two poems, explaining which poem, in your opinion, better uses its structure to convey the speaker’s ideas. Use text evidence to support your judgments.

    Well, the first sort of error that I see is that you didn't compare 2 forms of poetry, but focused on only Shakespeare's.

    Other tips for some improvement : - Make compound sentences and you will sound more advanced and sophisticated in your writing - Analysis seems to be done correctly, so nice job, just make sure to also analyze the other poem you're supposed to be comparing Sonnet 73 with - Try to avoid the hypothetical situation too much because it may seem more like you're telling a story or narrative and straying away from an anaylsis. So avoid 'might' or 'could' and make sure not to cross that line. - At the end of the body paaragraph disccusing the sonnet, don't just leave off on the last bit of commentary, but sum up your ideas before moving onto the conclusion. Hope that helps more? :)
