Sonnet 73

Sonnet 73

Sonnet 73, one of William Shakespeare's most famous sonnets, focuses upon the theme of old age, with each of the three quatrains encompassing a metaphor. The sonnet is pensive in tone, and although it is written to a young friend, it is wholly introspective until the final couplet, which finally turns to the person who is addressed (the "thou" in line one).
