WEBCT POEMS The Passionate Shepherd to his Love - Christopher Marlowe tip to identify: look for the word shepherd, old english, flattering metaphors and description -"come live with me and be thy love" -Shepherd tries to 'woo' his love, using slick charismatic metaphors -"pleasures prove" sexual context. -Promises his lady "beds of roses" "thousand fragrant posies," "cap of flowers," "kirtle embroidered with leaves of myrtle," "gown made of the finest wool/Which from our pretty lambs we pull," "fair-linèd slippers," "buckles of the purest gold," "belt of straw and ivy buds," "coral clasps," and "amber studs" he's broke countryside man with little money. and will provide the woman with pastoral recreation activities, ie , "watching other shepherds do their thing, while they're on the rocks" The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd - Sir Walter Raleigh tips to identify: satirical statements, sophisticated reject lines items are similar to the passionate shepherd to his love but in a negative context. -"a honey tongue, a heart of gall" basically a reply to "the passionate shepherd to his love" . Critiques the ideas of Marlowe, and on the ideas of, "come back when you have more" explaining why the nymph is not down for the shepherd, -"Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of roses, Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten-- In folly ripe, in reason rotten." -all the materialistic things will disappear, anything with time will fade away, and that is exactly what the "shepherd" is giving to the nymph. To Penhurst - Ben Jonson tips to identify: old english "thy, thou, doth" "An ancient pile, built on ancient foundations" an apostrophe to the giant building, the owners of the house, and the beauty of nature. (implies the poet is close to the whole place) First half of poem concentrates on the natural beauty on the Penhurst land The second half details the owners of the house and the people that revolve around the house. at the end of the poem, Those “ambitious heaps” are built by their lords for show. Penshurst lacks that architectural pretension, but its lord “dwells”; he lives life to the fullest, in harmony with nature and humanity. Poetry - Marianne Moore How to identify: weird stanza layout, general idea about poetry itself  "I,too, dislike it. Reading it however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in it, after all, a place for the genuine." - The speaker hates poetry, but poem reveals why she likes poetry. anti epic, prose.  "we do not admire what we cannot understand" (basis of poem)  "the bat holding on upside down or in the quest of something to eat, elephants pushing, a wild horse taking a roll, a tireless wolf under a tree, the immovable critic twitching his skin like a horse that feels a flea."  nature references show the nature aspect in correlation to moores concept of how poetry isn't poetry anymore. calls poets "literalists of the imagination" The Moors – John Clare how to identify: look for farming words (sheep and cows, nature things); things about enclosure; each two lines rhyme  is about a natural man(noble savage) close to the state of nature  writes about enclosure; his land was privatized by lords to allow more profit by enclosure; he is being thrown off the land and land was taken away from him, he must either work for the lords and he does not own the land anymore, animals were free to go farm/graze on these lands before, now their freedom is gone  “horizon’s edge surrounds” not really a fixed boundary, we compare from a sense of where we are versus limits created by human constraints  Ending – the laws are unjust which have stripped him of his land, people should contest the new boundaries which have been set up, we can dream of being rich, but in reality after we have been stripped of our land since it was privatized it is merely just a dream 754 – Emily Dickinson How to identify: it will be 4 lines, most nouns are capitalized, about being a gun, to protect the master, being a foe, hunting and “Him”  An owner carries her away, she is a loaded gun and meant to be used by her master  About power versus lack of power, she is the tool for her master, she has the power  The desire of the gun is for the owner to live longer, the gun is just a tool for killing, it cannot destroy itself The Snowman – Wallace Stevens How to identify: 3 lines if 1 stanza, speaks of winter, ice, listener in the snow  You have to think / have a mind of winter to see nature in its true form  Winter leaves you with bareness, in the sound of wind and a few leaves  When you listen to winter, the snow leaves you bare, the nothing in the snow leaves you with nothing that is not there (there is something cause it is bare but nature is there overall) and nothing that is (there is nothing there) The Moors – John Clare how to identify: look for farming words (sheep and cows, nature things); things about enclosure; each two lines rhyme  is about a natural man(noble savage) close to the state of nature  writes about enclosure; his land was privatized by lords to allow more profit by enclosure;

It presents how many a lot of things we do now revolve around the ways of a car. - supporting ideas : the women sends a box of rocks wrapped in Kleenex is compared to how skin burns can be found but you can never locate where the sun has hit it – both makes no sense -the women hiding under the car is using the car as shelter hence giving an example of how it revolves around the engine  Ways to identify the poem: o Talks about life is circled around the combustion of the engine –aka car (ex. road, skin burns from the sun, seatbelt, cruise, shotgun, air conditioning, sweating from siting on the car seat to long) o “The worlds population is in Semi arid climate” o Through out the poem it describes a sort of road trip
