Shakespeare. 'Shall I Compare Thee' is about love and what two lovers feel for each other and how it is not affected by age. The way that Shakespeare is describing the woman is that she will never grow old and that her beauty will live on forever just like the poem will.

poetry of William Wordsworth, I strongly agree with the statement above.

I agree that William Golding paints a very bleak picture of human nature. Golding’s view on human nature is that “man produces evil like bees produce honey” (p. 252), he feels that evil in man is a natural phenomenon.
