Friends and Flatterers

Book Review   by:buta     Original Author: William Shakespeare
ª
 

According to the poet a person who flatters you is not necessarily your friend as his words are like the winds which come, go and change direction very easily. He says that as long as you are affluent all will be your friend but when you need some help no one will come up to help you. Infact all will try to ignore you.

But a true friend will always be with you. If you are in sorrow he will weep with you, he will stay awake if you can’t sleep. With every grief of yours he grieves too. These are the basic differences that should be kept in mind to segregate a friend from flatterer

    review about poem

    it was't upto the top level as expected...it should be describe after every single paragraph of the poem...which was't mention on the sammary...anyways it is quite understandable.
