Question: what is william shakespeare is actually saying about his mistress...
What is William Shakespeare is actually saying
about his “mistress” (at the time—a term of endearment and not one of
someone having an adulterous affair). Why does he use these words to
describe her? What is he really trying to say as is pointed out in the final,
ending couplet (final two lines). How do these two lines change the
meaning of the poem?
