Gives any idea of the tortured relationship between the speaker and the dark lady. Neither poem makes any explicit reference to the lady, her darkness, or her sexual treachery. What of the fair young man? He, too, is absent. Although 18 sonnets from the group 1–126 are included in The Golden Treasury, not a single one refers explicitly to the young man. The context in which the reader is expected to view the sonnets is created by the first six poems in Book One. ” The poems that follow, Marlowe’s “Come live with me and be my love” and the anonymous song lyric “Fain would I change that note / To which fond love has charmed me,” maintain the amorous cast of the episode but keep it utterly non-specific.
