Sonnet 146

Sonnet 146

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(5) Base Camp

We're not going to lie to you. This seems like one of the tougher sonnets in Shakespeare's cycle and not just because it can be such a bummer to read about death. Sonnet 146 is chock full of biblical shout-outs that can be hard to catch. Does that mean you're up a creek if you haven't been to Sunday school? Not at all. We break it all down in our "Summary" and in "Themes: Religion."
