11. When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes
This I always associate with "When to the sessions of sweet silent thought." They have the same argument. When I am feeling blue, I think of you. Yet the emotional tone is completely different. In one, the poet is wallowing in self-reflective grief, revisiting grievances from the past that should have been put to rest already. In the other, he is besieged by current self-doubt.
