Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare
Students of Guardea had two last special English lessons: they had the chance of listening to a sonnet written by William Shakespeare. After having listened to it I gave each student a line to draw,
then I collected all the drawings, took pictures of them and created a video.
In this way the students could understand the sonnet better and, imagining the meaning, they could also express their feelings.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date: Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimm'd; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd; But thy eternal summer shall not fade Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest; Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade, When in eternal lines to time thou growest: So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
