Poem

Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?

– William Shakespeare


Q:- Significance of title./Substance./Main theme./How does the poet compare the beauty of summer to that of his friend in his sonnet No.18?/Describe the beauty of poet's friend.

Ans:- Title is too much important for any literary piece. Though the world famous poet William Shakespeare left all his sonnets unnamed. They are only numbered. The present poem is the 18th sonnet of his sonnet group, contains 154 sonnets. He did it because he put down 154 sonnets to make up a group. So the poet didn't bother about the title of a sonnet.

     But every poem should be titled when it is treated separately. Here the first line "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?" is chosen as it's title. So now we have to judge the significance of the chosen title. The poem stars with an interrogative line and the rest part of the sonnet answers. The poem is poets tribute to his best friend. He depicts the matchless beauty of his best friend and compares it with the Summer's day. Finally finds him to be "more lovely and more temperate. "His friend's superiority is celebrated through the present sonnet. Though nature can be changed, but his friend's beauty is immortal and eternal. With the time, his beauty will be grown. It is clearly implied that, his friend's beauty is simply incomparable. As long as the readers will read it, his friend gets life.

     As the central theme of comparison is clearly expressed in itself, the title is a nice choice as well as appropriate.
