Anglistik - Literatur Shakespeare's Sonnet A case s All that changes, between these 83 sonnets, is the rhyme scheme leading up to the closing couplet.
The rhyme scheme of Sonnet 1 , as mentioned before, comes closest to the Shakespearean Sonnet, saving its epigrammatic couplet for the close of the sonnet. The whole of the sonnet feels driven toward the concluding couplet. Sonnet 2 is a sort of hybrid between Petrarchan and English Sonnets. The nested couplets in the first and second quatrain make the first octave feel more self-contained, more like a Petrarchan Sonnet.
And here is yet another Sidneyan experiment — a sonnet composed in Identical Rhyme.

He was trying to do something different — at least if judged against his contemporaries. Only Donne would come close. Lines like:. On the other hand, lines 1,4,5,8,9, 13, and 14 are firmly Iambic and Pentameter. So, while his sonnets might not have been considered Iambic Pentameter in his own day, Sidney was using Iambic Pentameter as a basic pattern from which to vary.

It does something very unique. The couplet assumes the role of a sort of epigrammatic volta, the embodiment of the Petrarchan turn, neatly hinging the subject matter. This Sidneyan form clearly demarcates the sonnet into two parts — the Octave, a hinging heroic Couplet, and a summarizing quatrain.
The form is, perhaps, the most legal-like, attorney-esque form in all of poetry — perfectly suited to the Elizabethan temperament of discourse, reason, balance, thesis and antithesis. The heroic couplet aurally reinforces the turn in disquisition — subliminally. The heroic couplet of the volta therefore feels less like a summation than a hinge between two distinct parts. Sonnet 80 stretches the notion of the conceit almost to the limit — verging on fetish by modern standards.
Swell with pride, he says. The word slide was every bit as suggestive in Elizabethan days as now.
All fairly innocent stuff. But is it? Which muses? Then he knowingly suggests his real meaning.
Anyway, Sidney, as if suspecting that he may be skirting obviousness — becomes somewhat more platonic with the Hinge Couplet :. Sweet lip, he writes, you teach my mouth with one sweet kiss. Both sonnets end with a kiss. Since saucy jacks so happy are in this, Give them thy fingers, me thy lips to kiss.
