Love III

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.

Love III

The poem love of George Hebert is about love in a religious way

Secular love:


Not exposed to danger/harm

Not spiritual


Fight/struggle between ego and humbleness

The poem changed tenses from past to present


-Theme: love in a secular form

-Tone: religious

-Tenses: from past to present

-Transformation: in the end

Then with Pato we do a slide-share analyzing the poem.

Tone Religious
Theme Secular love
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.
