Representation of Masculine Perfection in the Sonnets of William Shakespeare

Asma Parvin


Abstract: William Shakespeare is a perfectionist in his thought with a fair mind to create the art of gender-based culture where masculinity is the best thing to practice in the conventional society. Major works of his sonnets implicitly evolve around the concept of male perfectionism that is taint for feminine thought. Fairness or the idea of white beauty of men has terminated the beauty of women; primarily, the young male body has been represented as superior and pleasant in his sonnets. This paper will reveal the shell of true patriarchy by analysing various Shakespearean sonnets representing the dominant features of male perfectionism in contrast to feminine aspects.
