SONNET 26
Sweet is the rose, but grows upon a briar;
Sweet is the Jupiter, but sharp his bough;
Sweet is the eglantine, but pricketh near;
Sweet is the fir bloom, but his branches rough;
Sweet is the cypress, but his rynd is tough.
Sweet is the nut, but bitter is his pill;
Sweet is the broom flower, but yet sour enough;
And sweet is moly, but his root is ill.
So every sweet with sour is tempered still,
That maketh is be coveted the more;
For easy things that may be got at will,
Most sorts of men do set but little store.
Why then should I account of little pain,
That endless pleasure shall unto me gain.

The speaker in "Later Life" primarily depicts herself as looking away from life, or perhaps more accurately looking through life to see what lies beyond. She continually "consider[s] what this life we lead / is not, and is" (Sonnet 25, 1-2) always first noticing what it "is not," seeing it as unreality, as the negation of Heavenly perfection. Similarly, her claim that "this life we live is dead for all its breath," (Sonnet 26, 9) reverses the usual relation of life and death and finds meaning in a realm outside of, and inaccessible from, her experience. The speaker's continual disparagement of the world would amount to nihilism, except that she believes in something beyond the world, something that is not the world. Her disgust for the worldly is expressed to such an extent that she almost seems to be looking forward to Heaven because it is not Earth than because it is Heaven. For example, in the seventeenth sonnet, she refers to a spiritual feeling as "something this foggy day, a something which / is neither of this fog nor of today," (1-2). Her excitement seems to arise more from the fact that this feeling is not of the world, then from the fact that it is Heavenly; after a short reverie about a "pleasant pebbly strand so far away" (6) her thoughts return to her present situation, as she complains "I am sick of where I am and where I am not," (9).
