One cannot read Shakespeare’s Sonnets coherently without understanding the framing story, which is based on Arthur Golding’s translation of the story of Narcissus and Echo from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

"For as he drank, he happened to see the Image of his face,
Which he immediately embraced with fervent love."
"Stretched along the ground, it does him good to see
His ardent eyes which are bright and shining like two stars,"
"His beardless chin and ivory neck, and also the perfect grace
Of white and red indifferently painted on his face."
"He is the flame that sets on fire, and the thing that burns too."
"This wish is strange to hear a Lover wrapped in hurt,
Wishing away the thing that he loves as his heart."
