Are all the Sonnets addressed to two Persons? Who was The Rival Poet? The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust allowed South African research scientists from the Transvaal Museum in Pretoria to analyze twenty-four pipe fragments found on the grounds of William Shakespeare's home.
The findings, published in the South African Journal of Science, show that eight of the pipes tested contain traces of cannabis and two of the pipes contain traces of cocaine. The poem's reference to the writings of others anticipates the "Rival Poet" sequence sonnets 78 to 86 , which more explicitly considers other poets.
The poem answers its own questions by pointing out that his best work is inspired by fidelity to the subject of the poems. The sonnet seems to be sincerely self-denigrating about the poet's lack of variety, and lack of incorporating the latest fashions, but at the same time there is a sense that the self-effacing pose doesn't ring true. There is instead a self-asserting quality being implied: that when the poet compares himself with others in the first quatrain they appear to be mere followers of fashion, and in the second quatrain that his way of writing is a way for a writer to achieve a style that is distinct.
There is also the assertion implied in the sestet that the poet requires fidelity to his subject in order to arrive at a proper style, as opposed to the fickle valuing of constantly changing fashions. The poet's values, including fidelity to his subject, become dominant by the end of the sonnet, which is suggested metaphorically by the evolution of the meaning of the word love.
It is first used line 9 to refer to the young man "sweet love" , then in the next line the meaning is changed, and love is something that parallels the young man "you and love". Then in the last line the change is complete so that love identifies the poet "So is my love still telling what is told". The image of the rising and setting sun line 13 invites the initial assumption that it will refer to the young man as the sun, but that assumption is derailed when the last line indicates that the sun is a metaphor for the poet's love as expressed in verse.
Sonnet 76 is an English or Shakespearean sonnet. The English sonnet has three quatrains , followed by a final rhyming couplet. The 7th line is an example of a regular iambic pentameter:. The 2nd line repeats the minor ionic at the same point in the line:. In the reference of line 4 to "new-found methods" found in the works of others, Shakespeare may be referring to Michael Drayton's sonnets that were republished with many variations beginning in , and were advertised to have a "readiness to experiment".
The word weed in line 6 is an expression common in Shakespeare's works used to mean garments or dress. The Norton Shakespeare annotates "and keep invention in a noted weed" thus: And keep literary creativity in such familiar clothing. The Oxford English Dictionary 's definition of weed is "an article of apparel; a garment", and is consistent with the theme of mending, re-using, etc. The "noted weed" of line 6 and the images of lines 7 and 8 seems to be echoed in a poem by Ben Jonson , published in the first pages of the First Folio that notes the distinctiveness and authenticity of Shakespeare's lines:.
Bury your dead in the choicest of our burial places; none of us will withhold from you any burial ground for burying your dead. For the full price let him give it to me in your presence as a possession for a burying place.
I will give the price of the field; accept it from me, so that I may bury my dead there. Bury your dead. By this I shall know that you have shown steadfast love to my master. She went down to the spring, filled her jar, and came up. Is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night? As for me, the LORD has led me on the way to the house of my master's kin. Why do you stand outside when I have prepared the house and a place for the camels?
You shall get a wife for my son from my kindred, from my father's house. I said to her, 'Please let me drink. When they rose in the morning, he said, "Send me back to my master. He took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother's death. The sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim. All these were the children of Keturah. There Abraham was buried, with his wife Sarah.
And Isaac settled at Beer-lahai-roi. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them. Thus Esau despised his birthright. Why then did you say, 'She is my sister'? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us. The LORD blessed him,  and the man became rich; he prospered more and more until he became very wealthy.
And there Isaac's servants dug a well. You are now the blessed of the LORD. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it,  Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "I heard your father say to your brother Esau,  'Bring me game, and prepare for me savory food to eat, that I may bless you before the LORD before I die. I have done as you told me; now sit up and eat of my game, so that you may bless me. Be lord over your brothers, and may your mother's sons bow down to you.
Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be everyone who blesses you! And he said to his father, "Let my father sit up and eat of his son's game, so that you may bless me. For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright; and look, now he has taken away my blessing. What then can I do for you, my son? Bless me, me also, father! Why should I lose both of you in one day? If Jacob marries one of the Hittite women such as these, one of the women of the land, what good will my life be to me?
Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down in that place. This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. The stone on the well's mouth was large,  and when all the flocks were gathered there, the shepherds would roll the stone from the mouth of the well, and water the sheep, and put the stone back in its place on the mouth of the well.
Water the sheep, and go, pasture them. Jacob told Laban all these things,  and Laban said to him, "Surely you are my bone and my flesh! Tell me, what shall your wages be?
And Jacob said to Laban, "What is this you have done to me? Did I not serve with you for Rachel? Why then have you deceived me? He served Laban for another seven years. For the women will call me happy"; so she named him Asher. Then Rachel said to Leah, "Please give me some of your son's mandrakes.
Would you take away my son's mandrakes also? But now when shall I provide for my own household also? Every one that is not speckled and spotted among the goats and black among the lambs, if found with me, shall be counted stolen.
Let it be as you have said. And since they bred when they came to drink,  the flocks bred in front of the rods, and so the flocks produced young that were striped, speckled, and spotted. But the God of my father has been with me.
Now leave this land at once and return to the land of your birth. For he has sold us, and he has been using up the money given for us. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in the hill country, and Laban with his kinsfolk camped in the hill country of Gilead. You have deceived me, and carried away my daughters like captives of the sword.
I would have sent you away with mirth and songs, with tambourine and lyre. Test your knowledge of the Bible with over challenging questions and answers.
