To The Sad Moon Analysis

Author: poem of Sir Philip Sidney Type: poem Views: 18

Sponsored Links

With how sad steps, O Moon, thou climb'st the skies!
How silently, and with how wan a face!
What! May it be that even in heavenly place
That busy archer his sharp arrows tries?
Sure, if that long-with-love-acquainted eyes
Can judge of love, thou feel'st a lover's case:
I read it in thy looks; thy languished grace
To me, that feel the like, thy state descries.
Then, even of fellowship, O Moon, tell me,
Is constant love deemed there but want of wit?
Are beauties there as proud as here they be?
Do they above love to be loved, and yet
Those lovers scorn whom that love doth possess?
Do they call 'virtue' there— ungratefulness?

.: :.

the poet complaints about his love relationship and his experience of love. he talks with the moon in order to be convinced that all lovers are the same. this is a good example of apostrophe.

.: :.

the cause of moon's sadness is ascribed to that busy archer. do you recognise a traditional allusion? to whom?

.: Analysis :.

the questions in the poem show the lover's confusion. He is not expecting answers but he is expecting participation from the audience. The reader -if a rejected lover as the poet's state- could feel that the poet is adressing him.
The whole poem is a personification that reflects the confusion of a rejected lover, he is asking the moon if she is a rejected lover like him.
