Regarding the sonnet, I don’t think it’s one of the best i have ever read, granting that i’ve only ever read the prescribed anthology ones for my GCSE’s. Unlike Anita, I didn’t really find it confusing, more tiresome and samey-same. As it’s like many other sonnets about the death of a loved one or just death of love it’s self. After reading Mr Macknight’s commentary essay, I feel I have a greater understanding of what is expected of me when I am writing a commentary. I liked his essay as it was clear and always to the point, which drew my attention to the fact i have a tendency to ramble, especially over small details. Over all I enjoyed reading the essay and the accompanying sonnet, even if it did bore me slightly.
