This shows us, that Shakespeare, unlike so many renaissance writers, isn’t a complete romantic and idealist when it comes to love; he is realistic and pragmatic. However, he goes on to suggest that unlike her physical appearance, her happy disposition will not fade and she will remain beautiful to him, “but thy eternal summer shall not fade”.

Manhunt and Sonnet 116 Both poems; ‘The Manhunt’ and ‘sonnet 116’ discuss the theme of unconditional love, conveying that if the love is strong enough, nothing should ever alter it.
