The Definition Of Love Analysis

Author: Poetry of Andrew Marvell Type: Poetry Views: 1289

My Love is of a birth as rare

As 'tis for object strange and high:

It was begotten by despair

Upon Impossibility.

Magnanimous Despair alone.

Could show me so divine a thing,

Where feeble Hope could ne'r have flown

But vainly flapt its Tinsel Wing.

And yet I quickly might arrive

Where my extended Soul is fixt,

But Fate does Iron wedges drive,

And alwaies crouds it self betwixt.

For Fate with jealous Eye does see.

Two perfect Loves; nor lets them close:

Their union would her ruine be,

And her Tyrannick pow'r depose.

And therefore her Decrees of Steel

Us as the distant Poles have plac'd,

(Though Loves whole World on us doth wheel)

Not by themselves to be embrac'd.

Unless the giddy Heaven fall,

And Earth some new Convulsion tear;

And, us to joyn, the World should all

Be cramp'd into a Planisphere.

As Lines so Loves Oblique may well

Themselves in every Angle greet:

But ours so truly Paralel,

Though infinite can never meet.

Therefore the Love which us doth bind,

But Fate so enviously debarrs,

Is the Conjunction of the Mind,

And Opposition of the Stars.

The convulsion tear is an earthquake yes, but it's a an image of two great planes being torn apart, divided, just like the distance that seperated them! =-]

.: earthquakes and claustrop :.

And Earth some enw Convulsion tear is an earthquake, which certainly would have been traumatizing to the people of Britain. It is a conceit for just how difficult it would have been for the lovers to live peacefully if they world would need to be "cramp'd into a Planisphere."

As being a metaphysical poem, there are lots of metaphors relating the feeling of "Magnanimous Despair" to the scientific and natural world. Fate, of course, plays the "iron wedge" separating the two lovers, and the element steel is the kind of decree seperating them to the distant poles. On the same note, the Earth can be considered the deceit, which is comparing the lovers' separation to the immenseness of our world.

Capitalization plays a vital role in this poem as well, placing emphasis on the contrasting ideals of real love and the hopelessness of their case.
