Before we analyze the Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 97 , let's look a glimpse of his sonnets first. His Sonnets were not published between 1598-1609. A contemporary, Francis Meres, praised Shakespeare as a “mellifluous and honey-tongued” poet equal to the Roman Ovid, praising in particular his “sugared sonnets” that were circulating “among his private friends.” There are 154 sonnets describe the devotion of a character, often identified as the poet himself, to a young man W. H. or Fair Friend whose beauty and virtue he praises and to a mysterious and faithless Dark Lady. There is sometimes a rival character, a competitor poet of the poet. Critics debate over the design of the poetry- is it a Shakespeare's inner voice or is it a miniature drama in poetry?
