Neologizing Sonnets By Shakespeare
Shakespeare‟s sonnets are a true reflection of his literary genius. His sonnets neologized the sonnets definition.
The sonnets became popular just because of him in Elizabethan England. His sonnets bear his potency as well as outstanding
originality as a sonneteer. Masculine friendship becomes the subject matter of the majority of his sonnets. Within the sonnets
themselves, the narrator gives us cause to believe that the fair youth is his patron. The narrator alternatively expresses
confidence in the constancy of the young man's emotional (and financial) support and complains about the efforts of a rival
to woo the fair youth's sponsorship. In the early 1590s, Shakespeare himself faced a similar quandary. My paper will attempt
to analyze the homoerotic elements in sonnets (up to sonnet xvii), his standard of homoeroticism found in his sonnets and the
way it presents his sexual aspect.
