The Sonnets: Self Test

The sonnets to be read in this module are in three groups:
  1. "Love and the Young Man," further divided into three groups dealing with similar subjects:
  2. "Love, Lust, and the Dark Woman," divided into two groups:
  3. "That Time of Year"; a group of sonnets meditating on the passage of time:
Since, however, the sonnets to not have a formal plot to follow and understand, there is no self-test for this module; as you read the commentary that follows, look carefully at the footnotes to your edition to be sure that you understand the images and the language of each sonnet under discussion.
