Essay of Love III with Violeta Julia

ESSAY QUESTION: Explore how the voice of the poem Love III shows a change as the poem develops

 

The poem Love III is filled with emotions, the voice develops different views about himself as the poem elapses. In the following essay I am going to be exploring how the voice of the poem changes.

 

The speaker refers to God as love and it implies that it is not good enough for him because he has committed sins, therefore he rejects his forgiveness. As soon as the poem starts we clearly see how the voice feels about itself.

«Love bade me welcome: yet my soul drew back, guilty of dust and sin»

In this quotation personification is present when it says that love welcomed the voice. The speaker is in conflict because God is welcoming is to his home and he feels unworthy.

«But quick-eyed love; observing me grow slack, From my first entrance»  We can see that the voice is embarrassed of being lazy, as laziness is a sin.

 

In the second stanza the voice said it was unworthy of God and it couldn’t look at him in the eye.

“Love took my hand and smiling did reply,

                                 Who made the eyes but I?”

We can see that love is kind and patient. We can also understand that Love is God because ours catholics believe that God created everything so, he created the speaker’s eyes. Love is trying to convince us that he is worthy and that God forgives all sins.

 

By the end of the poem the speaker realizes that he deserves the love of God.

“You must sit down, says Love, and taste my meat:

             so I did sit and eat”

Love orders him to receive his forgiveness and the voice finally enters God’s house and understands that he was worthy of eating “his meat” (It took the communion).

 

All in all, the voice of the poem felt unworthy of God because it had sinned, God was willing to forgive whatever wrong he had done and invite him to his kingdom. By the end of the poem the voice realizes he deserved whatever God thought right for him. In a way this is a representation of the catholic religion and the communion.

Answers

1- The voice of the poem is a woman that describes the men in her time and give warnings.

2- Stanza 1: In the first stanza the author that is compearing men and child and if they behaved around woman.

Stanza 2: This stanza we can see how is explaning that men can not be trusted because they are liars.In the stanza 1 the author wanted to show how men and child behave around woman.

Stanza 3: In this stanza the voice is talking about when you are in love and you can’t trust men because love abandone and he will leave you alone.

Stanza 4: In this stanza is focusing in men and what he do for example, starting fights. Also is saying that thay would never be allow to please woman.

Stanza 5: In this stanza is compering men with animals and also that they can change and not be so evil

3- I could find two themes from this poem that are love and men actions and also I could find two tones that are warning, confident and advising.

4- First of all, Personification: shows how love can be ungrateful for example in the first stanza, «LOVE, a child», the second Metaphor: because in the first stanza of the poem is saying «LOVE, a child, is ever crying» . The third and last one is Simile: «Not seek him so given to fly” here the speaker is saying how you leave love alone as you would live a child alone.

6- I do not personally agree with the speaker with a lot of things because I think that he has to explain more the poem in general because it have a lot to explain and express too. Also he could talk about felling.
