  BBL 3217 POETRY AND DRAMA IN ENGLISHBA ENGLISH (EXEC) TRI-SEM 8/2010 Question 2 : From the selection of poems covered in class, which one do you enjoy/dislike?Explain the reasons for your choice. Your answer should reflect your understanding of theselected poem and creativity of your reasons. This essay explains the poem by William Shakespeare’s that I like the most. The sonnetthat I like the most is sonnet 97. What a great beginning to a great sonnet. This sonnet,understood quite well in the first quatrain, showed a few difficulties throughout the second andthird quatrains. This is obviously dedicated to a loved one, more specifically a woman whoWilliam Shakespeare loved at that period of time. This sonnet explains the difficulties that a person might encounter emotionally when he/she separated with his/her loved one or in case of the absence of the loved one. The sonnet suggests that when someone is apart from the belovedone, they would feel so unpleasant, disturbing. Whatever they get them self into doesn’t seemright at the moment. All the works that they have been doing ended up miserably for them. Theytend not to have the urge/drive to do anything with the absence of the beloved one.In the first quatrain, the speaker portrayed that all that he is seeing is all dark. It suggestthat they beloved one being the light of his life and her absence darken his world. The speaker exclaims that “if you’re not with me, it’s like winter to me, feeling cool and freeze”. Thisexaggerates how much a man/woman misses one another when they endure a separation fromone another. The image of winter, symbolizing both physical and emotional freezings, unitesthe sonnet, which begins and ends with the poet being alone. Prepared by:Sudheep Ramasamy (B10127)  BBL 3217 POETRY AND DRAMA IN ENGLISHBA ENGLISH (EXEC) TRI-SEM 8/2010 The second quatrain however, the poet says that even though in reality the seasonautumn, he sees that as summer. Autumn is where the flowers bloom and the trees bear morefruits and it is a warm season. A season that all nourished but for the separated soul, it feels likesummer throughout the year. For example, autumn is characterized as teeming where it means bountiful with richness of the harvest. But teeming also means pregnant, so that althoughtrees are bearing fruit, nevertheless the poet feels barren because he and the youth are separated.The anticipation of the speaker to be father become uncertainty of his partner is away.In the last couplet, the speaker says that birds may sing when the beloved is gone, but it iswith “so dull a cheer: that the leaves listening become fearful that winter is upon them. The birdseems to be mute for the period of the beloved absence.The uses of seasons as the metaphor of time for the passage are functioned as a kind of delusional indication of how deeply the speaker misses the company of the beloved. The uses of winter season also showed that he doesn’t feel happy and winter season doesn’t evoke thecheerful moods for the absence of sunshine. Winters are associated with sadness where it is dark,gloomy and cold all the time.This could be the best poem to describe the feeling of a person who has been separatedwith his loved one and that is the reason I find this sonnet very impressive to me.
