    Default Is this one sentence fine?

    Hi,
    Shakespeare notices that his friend is in love with himself being devoted with all his attention to himself.
    Thank you.

    No, it's not fine.

    I'm not even sure what you are trying to say.

    Sonnet Analysis
    It is from this website.

    But you, who are in love with yourself, seem to devote all of your attention to yourself.
    I wanted to rewrite it in third person.

    Right.

    It would have been helpful if you had given that context in post #1.

    'Shakespeare says that his friend is in love with himself and seems to devote all his attention to himself.'
