Shakespeare Teaches the Birds and the Bees with Sonnet 2

Schmoop LogoI was amused this morning when I read a tweet from helloSchmoop comparing Shakespeare’s Sonnet 2 to a parent giving their child “the talk.”

You can see for yourself what they mean by visiting Schmoop’s Sonnet 2 page. You’ll find a nutshell summary, the text of the poem itself, a brief analysis, an extended analysis, themes and study questions, and much more.

If you’re looking for interesting and relevant Shakespeare resources, be sure to check out Schmoop, a site “lovingly created by Ph.D. and Masters students from top universities.” I’ve just started looking into the site myself, and it looks like a must-have resource for literature and history teachers.
