Love Incarnate Analysis

                        (Dante, Vita Nuova)





To all those driven berserk or humanized by love

this is offered, for I need help

deciphering my dream.

When we love our lord is LOVE.



When I recall that at the fourth hour

of the night, watched by shining stars,

LOVE at last became incarnate,

the memory is horror.



In his hands smiling LOVE held my burning

heart, and in his arms, the body whose greeting

pierces my soul, now wrapped in bloodred, sleeping.



He made him wake. He ordered him to eat

my heart. He ate my burning heart. He ate it

submissively, as if afraid as LOVE wept.

.: :.

The poem begins impersonally, but, nevertheless, a direct address--a suggestion that the entire poem is one of contradictions, ambiguities. The speaker "needs help." If you trust him, this is a confessional piece. The "fourth hour" may be midnight, deep sleep, or both. Love manifests in a dream as a true, concrete possessor. Love is described in participle, rather than adjective, more mobile than perhaps we expect. The body itself transforms into a third-person form, an other self. The body is culprit, the physical for organ. Love is merely a suggestion like that evil service woman in REBECCA, Mrs. Danvers.
