Shakespeare's Sonnet XVI
2003-12-19
Added by: Idoneous
Line 8 reads as follows:
"Such heavenly touches ne'er touched earthly faces."
In the process of reviewing this poem, I've just come to realize that there's an extra foot in this line.
Certainly, an explanation (or rationalization?) for this apparent anomaly must exist -- I'm not aware of it, however. So, anyone out there with info to enlighten me?
