Product Description

Comparing poems is fun!

This worksheet asks students to compare the themes and ideas of these two famous Shakespearean sonnets.

The sheet asks students to:

-read and annotate the poems

-define unfamiliar words

-highlight certain aspects of each poem

-determine the main idea of each poem

-explain how the poems are alike and how they are different

-write an objective summary for each poem

-identify imagery in each poem and determine its impact on the poem

-determine the author's purpose in writing these poems

-determine which poem's love is deeper than the other

Teaching Tip:

It's fun to argue examples of the type of love in poems, especially with teenagers.
Determine which love is more real: the one in 130 or the one in 18. My students love arguing about this. Is beauty equivalent to love? Is love more important than beauty?
