Synopsis[ edit ] Sonnet 66 is a world-weary, desperate list of grievances of the state of the poet's society. The speaker criticizes three things: Lines 2 and 3 illustrate the economic unfairness caused by one's station or nobility: As, to behold desert a beggar born, And needy nothing trimm'd in jollity, Lines 8, 10, and 12, as in lines 2 and 3, characterize reversals of what one deserves, and what one actually receives in life.
As opposed to most of his sonnetswhich have a "turn" in mood or thought at line 9, the beginning of the third quatrain See: Sonnets 2918 the mood of Sonnet 66 does not change until the last line, when the speaker declares that the only thing keeping him alive is his lover.
This stresses the fact that his lover is helping him merely survive, whereas sonnets 29 and 30 are much more positive and have 6 lines in which they affirm that the lover is the fulfillment of the poet's life. Structure[ edit ] Sonnet 66 is an English or Shakespearean sonnet.
The English sonnet has three quatrainsfollowed by a final rhyming couplet. The tenth line exemplifies a regular iambic pentameter: This line and its rhyme-mate, line 12, happen to have a fully stressed syllable for each ictus; all the other regular lines have one unstressed syllable taking the ictus for example the final syllables of line four's "unhappily" and line eight's four-syllable "disabled".
These highly-patterned lines are bookended by four lines — two at the beginning and two at the end — with an initial reversal, as in line one: Because Pasternak's translation is also in iambic pentameter, the piece can be, and sometimes is, performed with Shakespeare's original words instead for example, by Gerald Finley on his album of Shostakovich songs for Ondine.
The critic Ian MacDonald suggested that Shostakovich may have used this sonnet, with its reference to "art made tongue-tied by authority," as an oblique commentary on his own oppression by the Soviet state;  however, the scholar Elizabeth Wilson pointed out that Pasternak's translation "somewhat watered down" the original's meaning, with his version of that line translating as "And remember that thoughts will close up the mouth.
