Not Sonnet 18: a parody of Shakespeare's sonnet
Product Description
For a fun, original way to look at Shakespeare's sonnets or English sonnets in general, read this original sonnet with your students. It serves as both a tribute to and a parody of the ideas of Sonnet 18 without using the original as a crutch. The opening lines read as follows:
"Shall I compare you to Shakespeare today?
You are of as wordy a temperament."

and continue later on with
"But Shakespeare’s far-reaching fame shall not fade
nor students cease to wander through his page..."

Read on to enjoy the final conclusion!
