"Sonnet 29" is a poem written by the English poet and playwright William Shakespeare. It was most likely written in the 1590s, though it was not published until 1609. Like many of Shakespeare's sonnets, "Sonnet 29" is a love poem. It is also traditionally believed to have been written for a young man. Unlike some of Shakespeare's other love poems, however, which are concerned with physical beauty and erotic desire, "Sonnet 29" is about the power of love to positively affect one's mindset, as the poem argues that love offers compensation for the injuries and setbacks one endures in life.
