Shakespeare was clearly deep, fanatical and a cultured man; he was passionate with how he feels and was capable to express it in a method that was precise and easy to understand. In Sonnet 130, he refers to his mistress, her burdens and his approach on her and her faults. The length of the piece is used up focusing the faults of this woman, moreover, how he thinks that any other man would basically be revolted by this woman. My perception is that the arrangement of this Sonnet in terms of substance and
Shakespeare's outlook served two principles. In opening, Shakespeare wanted to express the representation that his mistress wasn’t as reasonable as one would expect. They gave the impression to share some kind of connection that no other could contribute to with him, specially his wife. It didn’t matter to Shakespeare that she was not as good-looking, however, only that she shares the same views as he. Additionally, I think that Shakespeare is expressing the fact that he essentially doesn’t
want a mistress that is stunning, and that all of the traits that other men see in women are not his own but in reality disgusts him. It seems Shakespeare wanted the best of both worlds in terms of good looks and company. Preferably it would be appropriate for anyone to find a single individual that suits both types, but there are times, especially in late Shakespeare's time, that this was not as simple or possible that one would find his or her soul mate.
This piece is a favorite in so many ways. Primarily because he spoke the truth directly from the heart which one can relate to. It is so genuine that you felt both his pain and pleasure. This gentleman was truly before his time. Loved it.
