A new critic would be pleased by this interpretation of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 65. New critics look at things like etymology of words to discover their true meanings. In this commentary of the poem, the critic uses this method throughout to discover what Shakespeare intended to say. For example, the interpretation of the first line uses the etymology of brass, stone, earth and boundless sea. Another example, line 6: “Against the wrackful siege of battering days”. This interpretation is based on the meaning and etymology of the word wrackful. Both of these, along with the other 12 comments that this critic provided for this poem, base the true meaning through discovering the words and statements’ meanings based on etymology and historical references.

I hate to brag, but so far I feel this is all a breeze. But, in my personal case, that’s a good thing. Because I always have most fun when things come easy to me. So sitting down for a digital meet up with my classmates is as easy as it sounds. And incorporating things like the wordle into everything, is making things even easier and more enjoyable. I think it’s a useful literary tool. Although I am still skeptical of the Ngram. Mainly because I haven’t explored it and its features yet. Unfamiliar things are always subject to skepticism to me. But all these tools are always new ways of doing old things. But sometimes these new ways evolve so much that they become new entities entirely.
