Storyboard Text

  • P - Paraphrase
  • C - Connotation
  • I'm really upset because my wife isn't home to give me stuff to do.
  • A - Attitude/Tone
  • Hmm, I wonder where my wife is. Oh well, I guarantee she's is fine.
  • The narrator talks about how he just sits around all day until his wife gets home and tells him what to do. He would sit there for hours on end just waiting for her to get home and wouldn't even question where she was.
  • S - Shift
  • I don't think she really loves me!
  • The narrator compares himself to a "sad slave" which is a metaphor showing how he is upset his wife is gone because he apparently likes being given orders by her.
  • T - Title
  • Okay
  • The attitude/tone of Sonnet 57 is uncaring and dependent. The narrator is dependent on his wife to give him directions on what to do constantly, and never cares where she is.
  • T - Theme
  • I don't know what to do now that my wife is dead. I wasn't prepared for this.
  • The shift is in the last 2 lines of the sonnet. Before these lines, he tells us how he loved and cared for his wife, but as time went along, he realized that she doesn't really love him.
  • The title, "Being Your Slave What Should I Do But Tend," was talking about how a narrator didn't know what else to do instead of just doing whatever his wife wanted him to.
  • The theme of Sonnet 57 is not to depend on other people to tell you what to do because when they are gone you're never going to be prepared to go through life without anyone else.
