Delight In Disorder Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Herrick Type: Poetry Views: 3373



A sweet disorder in the dress
Kindles in clothes a wantonness:
A lawn about the shoulders thrown
Into a fine distraction:
An erring lace, which here and there
Enthralls the crimson stomacher:
A cuff neglectful, and thereby
Ribbands to flow confusedly:
A winning wave (deserving note)
In the tempestuous petticoat:
A careless shoe-string, in whose tie
I see a wild civility:
Do more bewitch me, than when art
Is too precise in every part.

.: :.

In this poem Herrick implies that the beauty of a work of art or may it be a person comes forth only by trying not too hard to achieve it. The naturalness and uniqueness is gained by a sense of disorder. Herrick chooses natural over artificial in this poem. when order is created out of disorder,its much more sublime.

I found this poem to be an obvious account on how that true beauty is not seen at the perfection of a woman, but at the time that she is the most true to her herself, the most free with her being. Herrick finds that perfection is boring, and that chaos is exciting.

.: :.

Herrick is excited about the \"sweet disorder\" because it suggests a woman who might err - i.e have sex with him. The disorder is sweet, it is not slatternly; this woman is not a whore, but there is something about the way she leaves just that little untidiness in her dress which suggests to the poet that that she might take off her clothes for him. Whether she was just a little careless dressing that morning is another thing!

This poem could be discussing the morning after, because garmets are careless thrown on. Also this poem is talking about the beauty of flaws. Great wonder in history have flaws, like the Great Pyramids, they are withering everyday, but we are still amazed by the ancient Egyptian\'s works of art.

This poem is about the women getting undressed. the ribbons flow the crimson stomacher its clearly the man speaker is watching perhaps there while sher is. he has desire for the flesh and women to him are more beautiful than art

This poem is an obvious comparison to Jonson's "Still to Be Neat" where they banter perfecting the image of beauty. It all means nothing in the grand scheme of time.
It also can be related to Herrick's "Upon Julia's Clothes"
The petticoat is compared to a wave.

Good poem.
Effectively shows another side to society in that perfectionists don't always get the most "bang for their buck", meaning that there can be more value in imperfection than perfection

Perfection although perfect is not always perfection. The odd flaw can add that extra layer of perfection that perfection alone can never attain. Sometimes the greatest fault in an artist can be the making of the artist, the too long nose, the careless brush strokes, the clash of colour, the slightly flat note can bewitch and enchant.

the poet narrator finds a woman who has dressed carelessly more attractive and seductive than a woman who has dressed very proper.she has worn every article of her dress which makes her look sexy(wantonness)which causes strong feelings for other gender.that is her scarf like object over her shoulder bewitches him more and her ribbon flowing with the wind.at the conclusion, herrick captures the essence of this woman by seeing in her a "wild civility". herrick describes disorder as her neglected cuff and ribbons flowing confusedly.

.: good poem :.

This poem talks about Herricks love of imperfection in beauty, as well as imperfection in art. This poem is supposed to be arranged in sonnet form, but the rhymes, rhythm, and meter is out of synch. The oxymorons and personications that are littered throughout the poem add more chaos.
