“Sonnet 29”

I dislike this sonnet. It’s just confusing. AH! However, since I have to write about it… I thought the commentary essay that Mr MacKnight gave us was good, although I don’t think he wrote it!! It was well explained and to the point. There were no generalized statements either. This essay had lots of detail about the sounds and language, and it  also had a good explanation for it. Something I don’t do that this essay did do was that it looked at the poem as a whole. Instead of simply analyzing bits and pieces, it analyzed details and also put it into context with the rest of the poem. Well done!

    Anita, I DID write that commentary, and I have witnesses to prove it.

    Anita I was wondering how can you find this poem confusing? Was it the sort of language or was it something I totally missed? I also found it a bit confusing but this was because of the words I had no clue about. 🙂


The evidence for your argument consists of details from the text. If you do not refer to details from the text, then your argument will lack supporting evidence and will fail to persuade anyone.
