can someone please explain to his coymistress to me?
thankyou so much!
i don't know if anyones replied but its basically a syllogistic, three part argument in which the speaker is trying to persuade his lover to have sex with him. in the first stanza he uses flattery based on hyperbole. then in the second stanza he uses imagery associated with death ("marble vault" etc). And then in the final stanza he uses imagery associated with health and vitality to convey the importance of making the most of their time together.

Hope that helps- really hoping this will come up! good luck

I wanted it to be manhunt so badly! Can someone send me some starting points on how to analyse Sonnet 116? Because i find it really hard to do anything with
I know manhunt, nettles, quickdraw and ghazal...
just to let you guys know, Hour, Harmonium and Sonnet 116 - if they appear - will only appear in the higher tier...so there's a high likelihood that one of them will come up.
how did everyone find the lit paper today? anyone do TKAM and/or the Crucible, the questions were horrible!
SONNET 116 IS A GREAT ONE TO COMPARE WITH TO HIS COY
- one oviously talks about true lvoe, the other one lust/hypothetical love
- in sonnet 116, love seems autonomous, 'looks on tempests and is never shaken' tempest being a metaphor for trouble, it shows love is unaffected, very powerful. whereas in to his coy, love seem weak, succumbs to external factors 'beauty shall no more be found' simile of youthful hue like morning dew.
-lastly a point about time and love, in 116, love 'bears it out to the edge of doom' implying it is everlasting, outdoes time. but in to his coy, time defeats love, as 'none' 'embrace' in the 'grave' the grave being synonymous with death and end of time.

REMEBER TO ANALYSE TECHNIQUES OF LANGUAGE AND STRUCTURE TO BACK THESE POINTS UP

Does anybody have any revision techniques or ways or revising they find fairly pain-free and easy? I have this exam on Thursday too, and don't know how to revise poetry!?
