Abstract or Introduction
The Sonnet 143 is one of Shakespeare's most inventful ones. Simultaneously it is as one of the dark lady sonnets fixed in a way. Without the knowledge of this classification it could also be the `farm-sonnet`. The poet feels attracted to the dark lady, who feels in turn attracted to 1another `person`. A chase takes it course. It is a horizontal chase, which has to end up, if there is no interruption, after a long while at the same place, if the reader can trust the idea of a circle of desire. This image Shakespeare sets in the heads of them. But in contrast to other chasings, this is not about fear, it is about love and the longing for touching. There is also no one, who runs away from the mouth smell of the dark lady. In this sonnet, the dark lady is presented as a 'housewife'. So she would know a lot about caring. Besides the poet describes her as careful, which means that she is able to provide herself, but this said nothing about if the poet likes that. Deftly in pressing on the glands, Shakespeare displays himself in the lonely offside. Instead of compassion, it is necessary to ask the question, how much the poet manipulates his own figure. Moreover the question, if Shakespeare is a misogynous poet has to be answered. This term paper will try to give an answer.
