Storyboard Text

  • Paraphrase
  • The speaker is talking about how they are like a slave for someone and the speaker does everything for him/her. He does get jealous because of how superior they are, yet he thinks nothing bad of them. He acts like a slave and will do anything as how a real slave would act toward his master.
  • Metaphors and imagery are used throughout the sonnet such as "Nor think the bitterness of absence sour" which shows the jealously within the person, yet he/she doesn't want to express it. An example of imagery would be "But like a sad slave stay and think of nought" since it gives us a picture of what a slave would think of in a time like this. Jealousy and love come together and contrast throughout the sonnet.
  • Connotation
  • The tones of jealousy and compassion make up this sonnet in which we see evidence. Words like "jealous," "Nor dare I," and "Nor services to do till you require" shows the jealousy, also the compassion for the person. The person is feeling two ways which gives the message/theme of the sonnet.
  • Attitude/Tone
  • The last 3-4 lines show a difference about how the speaker was indeed jealous, but they realize how happy they make others. Also, the speaker refers to "he" or love to be a fool, and love thinks nothing bad of the superior person.
  • Shifts
  • Title
  • We first thought it meant about someone struggling as a slave, and the hardships of a salve. It ended up being about someone who was waiting for their friend or lover and they feel like a slave tending for whatever the person wants until they come back.
  • Theme
  • Some people will do anything for a close friend or lover. We see that in this sonnet because it refers to a slave and his master and how a slave would do anything. even when you get jealous, you should always show some compassion.
