So, I'm doing an essay at the moment on Sidney's sonnet 90 & Shakespeare's sonnet 76 comparing how the poet conveys the notion of authorship in each case. And basically, I'm struggling a bit. Now, I'm more at ease with Shakespeare's sonnet - I understand what it's about etc. But I'm having difficulty understanding Sidney's sonnet. I've tried searching on the net but I'm not having alot of luck and it means I can't continue with my essay at the moment. If anyone could help me get to grips the concept of this sonnet I'd be very grateful!
Also, any comments on how the two are similiar/dissimiliar, notion of authorship etc would be greatly appreciated too!
Thanks alot in advance
