Abstract

Sonnet 12 is interesting to analyse because it talks about time in carpe diem motif which is close to life and it appears even in the first line. There is a speaker in the first line who wants to tell about time. Time which never can stop running in our life as a clock, thus time becomes something close to life. There are only 14 lines in sonnet 12 but there are a lot of things in the meaning. There are so many symbols refer to time and give dualism meanings about youth. Some of symbols that refer to time represent youth and in another way, they stand for something useless and also threatening. Youth is the time in human phase that gives a lot of chance. There are healthy body and fresh mind while young in human phase, but sonnet 12 makes the useful value in youth turn into the things that are useless. The researcher finds an odd thing in youth term that has been described in sonnet 12 through its text. The researcher uses New Criticism theory for focus on the form because the form of poetry stands as a fact. The point of view of New Criticism helps the form to work on its function. The form of poetry makes the poetry beyond the time. The sonnet 12 as poetry can relate to the present and New Criticism fits on it. The New Criticism theory focuses on metaphor or ambiguity, paradox, irony and tension of sonnet. The New Criticism emphasizes close reading as a way to engage with a text, and pays close attention to the interactions between form and meaning. The paradigm of New Criticism is formalism. The form of poetry works as a preservative. The researcher finds many symbols that are contradictory, such as: brave day and hideous night, grow and die, also summer‟s green and Time‟s scythe. The phrases brave day, summer‟s green and also violet past prime refer to youth and the contradictory phrases refer to something that has been missed in vain. The youth as a crucial phase in lifetime is portrayed in detail through sonnet 12. A whole text gives an irony meaning, there is a naive role that wastes time while young in a limited time.
