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?

  1. 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.

  2. In Sir Thomas's Sonnet, the speaker was an old hunter who has grown tired of hunting and finds it useless. He gives details on a deer he knows of and knows where to find it. He also explains how he also find it useless to hunt the deer because it is useless.
    In Edmund's Sonnet, the speaker was a man who describes himself as fire and great heat. He is in love with a woman whom he describe as ice and coldness. Normally, ice is melted and effected by fire, but in the sonnet, Edmund describes the way his fire and her ice does not effect.
