Sonnets From An Ungrafted Tree Analysis

Author: poem of Edna St. Vincent Millay Type: poem Views: 2

I, being born a woman and distressed

By all the needs and notions of my kind,

Am urged by your propinquity to find

Your person fair, and feel a certain zest

To bear you body's weight upon my breast:

So subtly is the fume of life designed,

To clairfy the pulse and cloud the mind,

And leave me once again undone, possessed.

Think not for this, however, the poor treason

Of my stout blood against my staggering brain,

I shall remember you with love, or season

My scorn with pity,—let me make it plain:

I find ths frenzy insufficient reason

For conversation when we meet again.

.: :.

I don't think it's unusual that it's a woman. Only unusual that it is expressed. Women are expected to want more while men are allowed to have emotionless flings. Millay's reversal of this role reveals that some women feel (and some women have always felt) the same kind of emotional detachment at different times.
Sex isn't an emotional venture every time. That's not knew news.

.: :.

She is thinking of a lover of hers. He is near her and attractive so her body responds to him. She wants to have sex physically but is not interested in him emotionally. She does end up having sex but does not want him to think it means anything. She finds their tryst not enough reason to see or talk to him again. She doesn't think badly of him, she just isn't interested in a relationship. This poem is a sonnet from a woman's perspective which is somewhat unusual.
