Sonnet 73 by William Shakespeare

Lesson Plans by Kristy Littlehale

“Sonnet 73” is a poignant sonnet for anyone who has sensed time passing too quickly, and the need to hang on to youth and experiences. It uses winter, night, and a dying fire as metaphors for the inevitable approach of Death. This sonnet is excellent to use for literary elements, TP-CASTT analysis, and for a student to connect their own experience of time passing by too quickly.
