The metaphysical poets were men of learning, and, to show their learning was their whole endeavour; but, unluckily resolving to show it in rhyme, instead of writing poetry, they only wrote verses, and, very often, such verses as stood the trial of the finger better than of the ear; for the modulation was so imperfect, that they were only found to be verses by counting the syllables… The most heterogeneous ideas are yoked by violence together; nature and art are ransacked for illustrations, comparisons, and allusions; their learning instructs, and their subtilty surprises; but the reader commonly thinks his improvement dearly bought, and, though he sometimes admires, is seldom pleased.
Olive and Betty remained happily together, raising their children and pursuing their careers until Olive died in Lascivious grace, in whom all ill well shows, Kill me with spites; yet we must not be foes. Kind is my love to-day, to-morrow kind, Still constant in a wondrous excellence; Therefore my verse to constancy confined, One thing expressing, leaves out difference.
Love Sonnet O, never say that I was false of heart, Though absence seemed my flame to qualify. And so began a happy on-off threesome. In the second stanza, the speaker shifts to images of swiftly passing time to impress upon his love that they in fact do not have the leisure to love at this slow rate.
In fact, he believed women were superior to men and that one day they would rule the world. Once life is over, the speaker contends, the opportunity to enjoy one another is gone, as no one embraces in death.
However, in the third stanza, the mood brightens again; the poet has a solution. Thy beauty shall no more be found, Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound My echoing song: Andrew Marvell- Had we but world enough, and time, This coyness, Lady, were no crime.
Ian Watson notes the debt of this story to Marvell, "whose complex and allusive poems are of a later form of pastoral to that which I shall refer, and, like Marvell, Le Guin's nature references are, as I want to argue, "pastoral" in a much more fundamental and interesting way than this simplistic use of the term.
I would Love you ten years before the Flood, And you should, if you please, refuse Till the conversion of the Jews.
Had we but world enough and time, This coyness, lady, were no crime. The line "A fine and private place, but none, I think, do there embrace" appears in Stephen King's novel Pet Sematary. Methinks this time becometh lovers best: Now therefore, while the youthful hue Sits on thy skin like morning dew, And while thy willing soul transpires At every pore with instant fires, Now let us sport us while we may, And now, like amorous birds of prey, Rather at once our time devour Than languish in his slow-chapt power.
Many authors have borrowed the phrase "World enough and time" from the poem's opening line to use in their book titles. Her eyes and mouth are taped shut.
My vegetable love should grow Vaster than empires and more slow; An hundred years should go to praise Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze; Two hundred to adore each breast, But thirty thousand to the rest; An age at least to every part, And the last age should show your heart.
Thy beauty shall no more be found, Nor, in thy marble vault, shall sound My echoing song: The love that he describes seems rough and violent: I would Love you ten years before the flood, And you should, if you please, refuse Till the conversion of the Jews.
Another tenet of metaphysical poetry was the rumination on topics far greater and grander than easy definitions; love was popular, and so was religion, and faith, and belief, and a variety of other topics along those lines.
With variations, it has also been used for books on the philosophy of physics World Enough and Space-Time: No matter then although my foot did stand Upon the farthest earth removed from thee.
Marston proved himself a devoted, inspiring and affectionate father but his career was still shambolic, with Betty bringing in the money. I will resolve you: He wanted her to become the fourth member of their sexual quartet and a permanent member of the unorthodox family, compared to the more on-off arrangement with Marjorie.
Love in To His Coy Mistress and The Flea Both 'To His Coy Mistress', by Andrew Marvell () and 'The Flea', by John Donne () present different attitudes to love.
Both are also structured very differently and occasionally use contrasting imagery. Often dismissed for his lewdness, Marvell didn't become very popular until T. S. Eliot wrote an essay praising him for his abililty to shift between high seriousness and humor. This particular poem was first published after Marvell's death, by his housekeeper.
Above all, To His Coy Mistress does not denigrate or mock the lady’s appearance (such as in Shakespeare’s ‘My Mistress’ Eyes are Nothing Like the Sun’) as this was not the use of metaphysical poetry.
The use of what is known as an erotic blazon – taken directly from Petrarchan love poetry – deifies the lady of the speaker’s affection; this is the truest form of love that the man feels as though.
