Round the cape of a sudden came the sea,
And the sun looked over the mountain's rim:
And straight was a path of gold for him,
And the need of a world of men for me.

We know this poetry is the next lines of "Meeting At Night" and related to that.The speaker passed a long and hard journey just for meeting his lover secretly.(True loves is always secretly.)And after passing night with his lover it's morning and he should come back to his society till have money and can get back again for his lover so this is pleasant for him(a path of gold for him), but the speaker is so sad of leaving his love and he needs a world of man to understand his sadness cause just a man understand the sadness of parting of his love.

This poem was originally the ending of the now two stanza, 6 line verse of Brownings entitled 'Meeting at Midnight'- which was written in the year preceeding his elopement and marriage to Mrs Browning, so this was probably sadness on their parting after their secret meeting at midnight.. to get to that meeting place Browning arrived in a boat, left same at beech and trudged over three fields to the farmhouse where Eliz was waiting for him. Therefore, in keeping with the Meeting at Midnight, the first two lines are depicting the turn of the tide and the dawn of day.Her father didnt approve of their liaison so mayb he was thinking he had to hotfoot it outta there before he wast caught but had to leave his lover behind, thus he was entering a world full of men, without her.

it feels as if the male figure in the poem is trying to take advantage of the weaker vessel. It seems as if the girl who is in love with the man, is betrayed in the poem, which leads to both of them parting in the morning. the man, now completely satisfied of taking good advantage of the woman, doesn't leave any sign of returning to her for love. If he returns, it'll be for physical pleasure.
A strange thing about the poet is that, Browning throughout his life never faced such circumstances or any of such abnormal situation, yet it is a mystery as what lead him to write such strange unhappy poems about relationships.

I believe this little poem is meant to describe the immediate switch of mental state that comes with orgasm.
Robert browning illustrates the way your mind comes out of sex by comparing it to the sun coming up. Suddenly after you cum the overwhelming satisfaction allows your mind to return to its regular state. Just think about when your having sex your mind is completely focused on the sex but orgasm brings you right out of it, remarkably suddenly (for men anyway).
Round the cape of a sudden came the sea (orgasm)
And the sun looked over the mountain\'s rim (the dawning of the sun represents the dawning of the regular state of mind)
The guy in the poem\'s ordinary state of mind is in the world of men and that\'s what his mind returns to after sex.
By \"the world of men\" the poem means everyday business which is as seperate from the world of sex as night is from day, as implied by dawning image.

the suddenness of love, and the suddenness of love lost. he, with the path of gold, got my girl. and i, left in my despair and loneliness, can only find solace in a world without women. a world of men. of events, of intellect, adventure. but no women (and no hurt) for now.

What if the point of view of the poem is from the woman. The path of gold could symbolize that its actually the woman who got what she wanted and she is done with the man. The path of gold is a sign for his exit that he most go. And one man can never satisfy her becuase she has a never ending lust for men, \"the need of a world of men for me\"

Well i believe that Parting At Morning is an astonishingly beautiful piece of art that is focused upon the acts undertaken by a man after an intimate evening with an unknown woman. The man has recieved the pleasure which he had travelled so far to obtain and is now making his way back to the normal everday society where he can conitnue to work to make a name for himself. A path of gold represents the path to fame and fortune which all men seek to have a successful life and \"the need of a world of men\" is the standard society for businessmen who are all seeking success and that is exactly what this unknown man also wishes for himself.

I think it means how the man has to leave his lover and entually return to the reality world.

This poem is about how a man thought he was in love with a woman (Meeting at Night), but in the morning, after he finally gets what he wanted, he realizes that he just wants to get back to the "world of men". He leaves the woman who is probably still in love with him and goes back to his original life like nothing ever happened. The sea that comes around the cape represents the man's realization that he really isn't in love with this woman. It came "suddenly" because he didn't expect it, yet his bubble of love was instantly popped and there wasn't one affectionate feeling left for his temporary lover. The author tries to redeem the man with the middle two lines of the poem by defending his decision to leave the woman but in the end, he inconsiderately goes back to his own life without even thinking about how that would make his partner feel.

Its about death. Common for folks to pass at morning after a long nights vigil. The journey to the vast open ocean, a release, and then golden path to the sun (god) of the soul leaving the body for the beyond. The writer is telling of the parting at death for his friend and the need for a world of men for him is to stay behind in the physical world of mankind.

In this sequel, he is finally able to marry Elizabeth. He is also able to fulfill his hearts desires, as well as his sexual desires.

.: Sexual meaning :.

As a critic reader and writer, I think this poem is all about sexual activity. "And the sun looked over the mountain's rim" (line2) means that it is night already, night can symbolizes to romance and intimacy. "And straight was a path of gold for him, And the need of a world of men for me" (line 3,4), a gold straight path cannot in anyway i believe convey to something negative..it's like the speaker now at this dark silent time has something to do..and it's joyful as i can see and sense it.
And why do you think the narrator illustrates the need of a world of me for him????
What can a world of men imply to???
Maybe x about it guys!
