Earth's Answer Analysis



Author: poem of William Blake Type: poem Views: 113

Sponsored Links


Earth raised up her head.
From the darkness dread & drear,
Her light fled:
Stony dread!
And her locks cover'd with grey despair.

Prison'd on watery shore
Starry Jealousy does keep my den
Cold and hoar
Weeping o'er
I hear the father of the ancient men

Selfish father of men
Cruel jealous selfish fear
Can delight
Chain'd in night
The virgins of youth and morning bear.

Does spring hide its joy
When buds and blossoms grow?
Does the sower?
Sow by night?
Or the ploughman in darkness plough?

Break this heavy chain.
That does freeze my bones around
Selfish! vain!
Eternal bane!
That free Love with bondage bound.

.: :.

In this poem Blake responds to his previous poem from the collection songs of innocence \"introduction\". Unlike in the \"introduction\" the tone of this poem is sad, dark and cold as Earth and symbolically men have been trapped in a materialistic world that sees things such as sex and love as negative things, almost sins. The narrator condemns this as he reckons that these are joyful things and should be happening in daylight just like the other beautiful things that happen during daylight described in the 4th stanza

I think Blake was trying to say that Love and Sex should be more open. Referring to fathers as being selfish for being overly protective of their daughters. \"Does spring hide its joy\" \"When buds and blossoms grow\" referring to nature and mother earth as being open and joyful in its fruitfulness.
