Storyboard Text

  • The speaker's love is nonstop and constant even though someone else is telling him to stop his feelings of love. He wanted to believe his instinct but he was really wrong about the purity of their relationship and love.
  • Shakespeare uses the dark night to show that the "physician" was actually right about the speaker's love not being as "bright" as he said it was.
  • Shakespeare incorporated phrases such as "past cure" and "truth vainly express'd" to set a tone being deceitful.
  • In lines 1-7, the narrator describes how he feels towards this person and illistrates his love as if it were a disease, and also describes how he begins to lose his reason but after 8-12, he describes how he has lost all reason and there is no turning back and also realizes that the mistress(his love) was not the person he had believe her to be.
  • Could the physician be right?
  • His passion for his mistress is constantly desiring like a fever that is constant and you have a thought of doing something that isn't good for you
  • We thought he was gonna metaphorically explain that his love is difficult and hard to treat like a fever.
  • The speaker believes desire is death meaning wanting someone can lead to fatal endings. When stops being addicted to love, He starts losing his mind trying to tell himself that she is faithful. But he realized he was wrong and has had enough and expressed the truth. so he is saying that underlying love can have fatal ending if both partners aren't loyal and happy.
