‘In Sonnet 106, William Shakespeare seems to use lyric poetry to praise his muse, which was popular at the time. However, if considered that his muse was instead his male friend, the poem has a different purpose of applauding his own skill in comparison to writers of the past and the other poets of his time. He feigns modesty by contradicting his own conclusion and mocks other writers’ use of the blazon form to incapably express beauty.’

This is the first of two academic posters that I designed and wrote during study for my BA.
