Sonnet 65

<a title=”But sad mortality o’ersways their power”>Whose action is no stronger than a flower</a>

New critics would find Sonnet 65 to be easy to interpret due to there being so many patterns that help to interpret the poem.  The patterns there have to do with mortality and there being so many examples that nothing is more certain than death and nothing can escape that certainty that all living things will eventually die.  The fact that this so is throughout the entire poem, which makes it easy to interpret.  In addition, new critics would not have to visit a dictionary much to interpret the sonnet unless they wanted to have more words that could replace the word that is in the sonnet.
