What is the central idea of the second quatrain?
Read Shakespeare’s “Sonnet 130
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun,
Coral is far more red, than her lips red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see l in her cheeks,
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go, –
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.
O The speaker gives his mistress roses and perfume.
O The speaker’s mistress is like a rose-beautiful and
fragrant
O His mistress’s cheeks are not pink, and her breath is
not sweet
O Roses do not look and smell as sweet as the
speaker’s mistress
