In the works of William Shakespeare one can interpret hundreds of meanings stereotypes speculations and other such ideas In his sonnets specifically Sonnets XVIII XXIX XXX LXV and LXXIII Shakespeare talks of love and time He expresses ideas of the powers of beauty time and love and how each interacts with the other He examines the relationship between love and time In several references he leads the reader to believe that when written and recorded love can be remembered throughout time This single idea is one prevalent in each of these sonnets Shakespeare believes that time can destroy anything if it is not written down Once one puts his or her feelings into writing it can be read by anyone for all of eternity Shakespeare believes that written language can preserve love through any duration of time while the physical world around it may be drastically affected by changing times Time is a force that nothing can stop No matter what is going on in the world time will not stand still With time often comes change but more importantly death which reminds us of our mortality There are changes in weather climate seasons and more personally changes in emotions and ideas which come with time Time is a force to be reckoned with Because time brings an end to most things Shakespeare says in Sonnet LXV in black ink my love may still shine bright He believes that so long as he has written down his feelings of love or otherwise none of these irrevocable forces will be able to destroy his feelings In this same sonnet Shakespeare often used signs of strength and compared them to tests of time This was to show the reader that the power of love in words is stronger than any tangible object Since brass nor stone nor earth nor boundless sea But sad mortality oer-sways their power How with this rage shall beauty hold
