Today in class we wrote a commentary about ‘Sonnet 29′. In my commentary I talked about how Millay’s repetition of natural endings and general portrayal of love made it a sad poem. When I read Mr. MacKnight’s commentary I noticed that he made some of the same points but he went into much more detail. In almost every sentence he discussed what Millay had done or the implications of what she had done – there was very dense analysis. From these commentaries I have learned the importance of getting straight to the point. Often in my commentaries I am slow to start making useful commentary and can hopefully improve on this in the future.
