In the literature class we read the poem «Love III» by George Herbert. And we took notes.
Love bade me welcome. Yet my soul drew back
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning,
If I lacked any thing
A guest, I answered, worthy to be here:
Love said, You shall be he.
I the unkind, ungrateful? Ah my dear,
I cannot look on thee.
Love took my hand, and smiling did reply,
Who made the eyes but I?
Truth Lord, but I have marred them: let my shame
Go where it doth deserve.
And know you not, says Love, who bore the blame?
My dear, then I will serve.
You must sit down, says love, and taste my meat:
so I did sit and eat.
The poem love of George Hebert is about love in a religious way
Not exposed to danger/harm
Fight/struggle between ego and humbleness
The poem changed tenses from past to present
-Theme: love in a secular form
-Tenses: from past to present
-Transformation: in the end
Then with Pato we do a slide-share analyzing the poem.
|Voice||God and the voice|
|Literary figures and effect on the reader||Allegary: a representation of abstract ideas, in this case love and god.|
The poem is about a man that thinks he not deserve gods love.but then he think it more deeper and he start to accept god.
My personal conclusion is that the poem shows even if you don’t want God, God will find a way to be part in your life.
