William Shakespeare could possibly be the greatest literary artist ever His poetry however stands out from any other form of literature We remember Shakespeare as the pillar of our literary education and we approach his works with a sense of public-spirited devotionCharney Viii This is a very strong statement for Charney to make but there are many other people who have the same thoughts about Shakespeare When William Shakespeare wrote his Sonnet 45 he had the love of his life on his mind He explains the temptations he feels when she is present but he still knows what is right and wrong He feels that when she is not with him his life is more like death and he feels melancholy He will not be happy again until she returns to him However when she does come back he just sends her away again knowing that she will be happier with someone else This being told he will be eternally sad William Shakespeares Sonnet 45 is no different than any other Shakespearean sonnet It follows the traditional 4-4-4-2 structure as does every other Shakespearean sonnet The three quatrains all have the same idea to them the fact that there is a person that completes his life Then Shakespeare speaks with a scent of reality in the final couplet The first quatrain is about the love of his life and the thoughts and feelings he has towards this woman The second and third quatrains explain his feelings in different situations Finally in the last couplet of Sonnet 45 Shakespeare expresses the reality of his feelings This sonnet follows the traditional 4-4-4-2 structure of a Shakespearean sonnet because the first 12 lines of the poem are connected by three four-lined stanzas all touching on the same topic Then in the final couplet there is somewhat of a conclusion or answer to the problems of William Shakespeare William Shakespeare uses very intelligent imagery in his Sonnet 45
