Breaking the Conventions: Shakespeare, the Fair Young Man and the Dark Lady
Dalarna University, School of Languages and Media Studies, English.
2006 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to show how Shakespeare’s sonnets violated and reversed the conventional ideas in terms of beauty and idealisation. Furthermore, I will examine the way Shakespeare presented his beloved woman as an absolute opposite of the one created by Petrarch, and how he shifted all the divine metaphors from a woman to a fair young man, creating a new object of praise and admiration.
