Sonnet 29 is the lamantations of one who despised himself or herself until he/she saw once again the object of their devotion. Upon seeing this person, their self-worth rises once again in the final couplet.
In line 9, sonnet 29 takes a pattern typified of sonnets and uses the volta to change the mood from that of someone mourning their lot to rejoicing in their good fortune. This is the same pattern that occurs in sonnet 18, as the poem shifts from describing the physical attributes loved one to the eternal character of the loved one.
Both sonnets are also based on love for a specific person and how that person completely changes the speakers' lives.
