Antithesis, Chiasmus, and Symmetry in Shakespeare’s Sonnet 105. Part 1 of 3.

In this article, I explore the possibility of applying a ‘centred form’ analysis to Shakespeare’s sonnet 105. That is, I attempt a ‘reconstruction’ of the sonnet from the chiasmus that is its line 8.

In the next part of this post, I discuss the implications of my findings for meaning in the sonnet.
