Sonnet No longer mourn for me when I am dead. By William Shakespeare. No longer mourn for me when I am dead. Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell.
James Scott Bell

Sonnet LXXIV

William Shakespeare baptized April 26, — died April 23, is arguably the greatest writer in any language. His poetry is not only one of the most exalted examples of what an immortal sense of creative identity can accomplish, but it is in a sense a kind of symbol for the immortality of the artist and the idea of timelessness itself. Too often Shakespeare readings are weighed down by an overly romanticized or sentimental reading, focusing on the sonnets as solely isolated pieces dedicated to the infatuation with some literal subject. What happens is one fails to see what Shakespeare is actually trying to accomplish. We are of the opinion that no such top 10 list could be compiled, which does not take into account or recognize the higher order of meaning, which governs the totality of the series — just as the star, which governs the orbits of all its planets and moons.

But be contented when that fell arrest Without all bail shall carry me away, My life hath in this line some interest, Which for memorial still with thee shall stay. When thou reviewest this, thou dost review The very part was consecrate to thee: The earth can have but earth, which is his due; My spirit is thine, the better part of me: So then thou hast but lost the dregs of life, The prey of worms, my body being dead; The coward conquest of a wretch's knife, Too base of thee to be remembered. This is the last of the quartet of sonnets which deals with old age and death. Finally the possibility of survival assumes a spiritual dimension. The fact that Time with his crooked knife can take all away is somehow alleviated by the persistence of the 'better part of me' which triumphs over the body's death. The poem links to many others in the series, especially those which deal with the unity of lovers, for here the poet's spirit is also the beloved's, and his spirit manifests itself in his verse, which will be a monument and a memorial for all time. Thus the miracle is achieved, that the dull substance of his flesh, no more worthy than the coward conquest of a wretch's knife, becomes transformed into the magic of eternal verse which conquers death and allows love to flourish where it seemed to be destroyed by death.

Word on the street and the English wing of your high school campus is that William Shakespeare wrote sonnets. Among other things about which I was a little skeptical in literature classes, this number is one of them.

These most famous sonnets are quoted regularly by people at all levels of modern western life — sometimes without even realising that they are quoting a line from a Shakespeare sonnet. The most famous sonnets approach the great universal themes of love and death, or the slow ageing that precedes death. So, what are these most famous sonnets? Perhaps the most famous of all the sonnets is Sonnet 18, where Shakespeare addresses a young man to whom he is very close. An interesting take on ageing and love. The narrator describes the things that people agonise over as they descend into old age — all the regrets and the pain of reliving the mistakes he has made.

SONNET 71 No longer mourn for me when I am dead Then you shall hear the surly sullen bell Give warning to the world that I am fled From this vile world, with vilest worms to dwell: Nay, if you read this line, remember not The hand that writ it; for I love you so That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot If thinking on me then should make you woe. O, if, I say, you look upon this verse When I perhaps compounded am with clay, Do not so much as my poor name rehearse. Are all the Sonnets addressed to two Persons? Who was The Rival Poet? In Renaissance England the hoot of an owl flying over one's house was an evil omen, and meant impending death for someone inside.
