Are you still part of humanity?

Do you still feel like your part of humanity? Is being part of humanity something we can still say we are proud of? Tell us what you think! Here are some words from Suzanne Collins, the writer behind the Hunger Games.

Shakespeare’s sonnetsĀ are a collection of 154Ā sonnets that dealĀ with themes such as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality.Ā The quarto ends with “A Lover’s Complaint”, a narrative poem of 47 seven-line stanzas written inĀ rhyme royal.

The first 17 poems which are traditionally called theĀ procreation sonnets, are addressed to a young man urging him to marry and have children in order to immortalise his beauty by passing it to the next generation.Ā Other sonnets express the speaker’s love for a young man, brood upon loneliness, death, and the transience of life seem to criticise the young man for preferring a rival poet, express ambiguous feelings for the speaker’sĀ mistress,Ā and pun on the poet’s name. The final two sonnets areĀ allegoricalĀ treatments of GreekĀ epigramsĀ referring to the “little love-god”Ā Cupid.

Pandorica has made several trademark images that involve some of these sonnets. Have a read!
