What is the Tone in Sonnet 1?
If you mean Shakespeare's Sonnet #1 (From fairest creatures we desire increase ...) the tone is witty banter (a bit like nagging, but more lighthearted and jokey). Sonnet #1 has the basic message: 'Yes, you are good-looking; but what is the point of looking good unless you have children who will one day be as handsome as you are?' The sonnet is one of the Fair Youth sonnets, where Shakespeare talks to a young man he knows, and tries to persuade his friend to marry and have children.
Asked in Definitions
What is the definition of the word sonnet?
A Sonnet is a 14-line poem, in iambic pentameter, with a particular rhyme scheme. There are a number of traditional rhyme schemes associated with sonnets, named after the poet who used them (Petrarch, Spenser, Shakespeare). A sonnet generally has a "turn" or change of tone or perspective, usually after line eight, but in some of Shakespeare's after line twelve.
