Hi. :)

What do the speakers of Sir Thomas Wyatt's "Whoso List to Hunt" and Edmund Spenser's "Sonnet 30" have in common? How are they different?

  • English -

    1. Think about these things for each poem:

    Who is speaking?
    To whom is he/she speaking?
    About whom is he/she speaking?

    -----------------------

    2. Both of these are sonnets, and sonnets almost always have a shift in content, mood, tone, or something that separates the first 8 lines from the last 6. Identify the change that happens in each of these sonnets.

    ----------------------

    Once you have those things figured out, let us know what YOU THINK. I'll be back in about 30 minutes to check.
