Sonnet 2

Sonnet 2

  

by William Shakespeare

Analysis: Tough-O-Meter

(4) Base Camp

A few of the lines in Sonnet 2 are tricky, and the extended metaphors can take a bit of piecing together. On the whole though, the main idea of this poem is pretty simple and clearly stated, so this climb shouldn't give you too much trouble.
