Holy Sonnet V: I Am A Little World Made Cunningly Analysis



Author: poem of John Donne Type: poem Views: 32

I am a little world made cunningly

Of elements, and an angelic sprite;

But black sin hath betrayed to endless night

My worlds both parts, and (oh!) both parts must die.

You which beyond that heaven which was most high

Have found new spheres, and of new lands can write,

Pour new seas in mine eyes, that so I might

Drown my world with my weeping earnestly,

Or wash it if it must be drowned no more:

But oh it must be burnt! alas the fire

Of lust and envy have burnt it heretofore,

And made it fouler: Let their flames retire,

And burn me, O Lord, with a fiery zeal

Of Thee and Thy house, which doth in eating heal.

There are many different ways to interpret this poem. Several references are made which could be argued as to whether or not this is what Donne intended; (spiritual perhaps?) \"so I might drown my world with my weeping earnestly\" may refer to the worldwide flood recorded in Genesis. \"But oh! it must be burnt\" could be alluding to a purification process. Fire does cleanse better than water. Ever heard the expression \"gold thru the fire\"?
