Poems

In the poem " The Passionate Shepherd to his Love" by Christopher Marlowe, the shepherd shows his love to what we believe is a maiden he is deeply in love with, and will be with her in a world that is always spring. This is shown throughout the poem. The lavish gifts, the bountiful foods, and the wondrous views." There will we sit upon the rocks. And see the shepherds feed their flow, by shallow rivers, to whose fall, melodious birds sing madrigals." That represents the views of spring time in a shepherds life of relaxation. There are a couple instances in the poem where Marlowe has the shepherd say he will make this, or give that. An example would be, "There will I make thee beds of roses, and a thousand fragrant posies, a cap of flowers, and a kirtle. Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle." Here the shepherd says he will make this beautiful gift to show his love and to show his maidens beauty. Also its another way to show his love for spring. To finalize " The Passionate Shepherd to his Love" by Christopher Marlowe, is about a shepherd who is deep love of not only a maiden but the time of spring. He hopes if he gives her the gifts of spring she will fall in love with him as said, "If these delights thy mind may move, then live with me and be my Love."
In the poem "The Nymphs reply to the Shepherd" by Sir Walter...
An example would be, "Time drives the flocks from field to fold. When rivers rage and rocks grow cold, and Philomel becometh dumb; the rest complains of cares to come." Another example is, "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 season rotten." Walter shows that the gifts are indeed beautiful, but time will soon make them "break" or "ruin." Throughout the poem Walter shows how time will ruin the gifts, but the Nymph loves the idea of spring all the time but knows its not realistic. To conclude Sir Walter responds to Marlowe by showing that spring cannot forever last, neither can love and that the gifts, the views will all be "destroyed" or "ruined" because of time, and she would accept the shepherd's offer if "could youth last" and "had joys no date."
In both poems, "The Passionate Shepherd to his Love" by Christopher Marlowe and "The Nymphs reply to the Shepherd" by Sir Walter, they have key similarities and go with one another. The manner the two poems interact with one another would be " call" and "response". In Marlowe's poem the shepherd expresses his love towards spring and his maiden. The shepherd promises extravagant gifts, beautiful views and bountiful foods prepared on gold platters, in hopes that his love would come his way and be with him. In Walter's poem he " responds" to Marlowe by showing that time will "ruin" the extravagant gifts. The beautiful views will also change in a manner that can be horrible. Also he shows that the nymph loves the idea of an endless spring, but she is skeptic, retaining faith in a seasons power to stop a "folly" of "spring love." To conclude the two poems correspond with one another, and ...Show more
