Reading and writing about poems

This article on reading and writing about poems might be the most boring treatment of the sonnets I've ever read, but if it's the sort of thing you need to finish your homework, then here you go.

Shakespeare's Sonnet 30 uses terms from finance and law. How does the use of particular words or a pattern of diction affect tone and meaning or contribute to the "message" of the poem? Here you should also notice any unusual word choice and consider its function.
