Alliteration and euphony.

Soft sounding

Sonnet 30

Silent may seem sweet but it can lead to sorrow Iambic pentameter- the usual meter for a sonnet Waste is a strong word for misuse Dactylic trimeter- the meter is almost drowsy like the tone of sadness and sorrow Personification- death cannot own a night This shows the poet is a strong man who does not cry often so these memories are powerful enough to make a tough man cry

A When to the sessions of sweet silent thought

Problem Very dramatic imagery

B I summon up remembrance of things past, A I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought, B And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:


C Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow, D For precious friends hid in death's dateless night, C And weep afresh love's long since cancelled woe, D And moan the expense of many a vanished sight: E Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,

His loved friends that were close to him Trochic pentameter-the emphasis starts at the beginning to express want.

Personificationyour memories are not physically heavy Solution (Heroic Couplet)

F And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er E The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan, F Which I new pay as if not paid before. G But if the while I think on thee, dear friend, G All losses are restor'd and sorrows end.

He has already grieved, yet he is grieving again.

Spondaic pentameter- sharp sounds demonstrates the power behind the heroic couplet.

The problem is resolved.
