The Question and Answer section for Sonnet 43 (How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.) is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
The speaker opens with a rhetorical question in line one, an aporia: "How do I love thee?"
The poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning is presumed to be the speaker, as the sonnet is dedicated to her husband. The sonnet is written in the first person from the perspective of the speaker.
