Thank you very much Writeacher! I added a few more things. I'd like you to check them, please


1)At the end of sonnet 12: The image of time as death, bearing a scythe (typical in medieval and Renaissance iconology) is left impotent by the presence of the fair youth’s progeny. 2) The image of death is also present in line 8 (“Born on the bier”) and in lines 11-12 (“Since sweet beauties…./ And die as fast as they see others grow”):

The Marriage of True Minds

1) Time is personified through the use of a capital letter in line 9, through the use of verbs referring to human action (line 10: bending, come) and finally through the use of the possessive adjective “his” in line 11. 2) Love is not at the mercy of Time, though rosy lips and cheeks, that is physical beauty, is doomed to fall under Time’s sickle. True love bears time out even to the doomsday.
3) It must be eternal and last to the end of time. The sickle stands for the inevitable passing of the time, whereas the adjective ‘brief’ points out the transience of beauty and time.

    Mostly punctuation corrections:

    At the end of sonnet 12, the image of time as death, bearing a scythe (typical in medieval and Renaissance iconology), is left impotent by the presence of the fair youth’s progeny.

    2) The image of death is also present in line 8 (“Born on the bier”) and in lines 11-12 (“Since sweet beauties…./ And die as fast as they see others grow”).

    The Marriage of True Minds

    1) OK (Didn't I already read this one?)

    2) Love is not at the mercy of Time, though rosy lips and cheeks -- that is, physical beauty -- is doomed to fall under Time’s sickle. True love outlasts Time, even to doomsday.
    Use of the dash (as opposed to the hyphen): " target="_blank">http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/marks/dash.htm

    3) OK
