The syntax and diction of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “Sonnet VII” offers an opportunity to examine how a particular word or phrase can reveal the relationship between two people. The narrator of a short video creates a cause-and-effect chart on which she records evidence of the interactions between the two characters that reveal their values.
