Last friday in literature, Pato posted a task in the blog for us to answer. We had to see a video, analize the poem Song by Lady Mary Wroth, and answer some questions.
Here is the video we have to see:
And this are my answers of the questions that Pato posted in her blog:
1-How is the voice?
Throughout this poem i can identify that the voice is the woman
2- Write a summary of each stanza
In the first stanza we can see that the writer, Lady Mary Wroth, makes a comparison between children and men. In the poem is also present imageries, auditory and visual. Moreover, we can see in the first line a metaphor: “love a child is ever crying”
In this stanza we can see how Lady Mary Wroth, explains that men are liars and cheaters that can not be trusted.
In this third stanza, the writter, in a sarcastic tone, shows that if you let them gain you you, as a woman, will fail.
In stanza four, the author is saying that man always succeed, they put you up a fight, and thay always have to win. This is how they are and they will never please woman. They love you and buy you gifts but when you ask them a favour they don’t do it.
In this last stanza, Wroth, uses metaphors that compare men with animals, and show that their ways are difficult to change but not impossible.
3- What is the theme? And the tone?
The themes in the story are: Love between men and woman. Men actions
The tone in the story is advising, warning and confident.
4- Find at least 3 literary devices and explain them.
- Personification: In the poem “Song” in the first stanza we can see personification through this first line: “Love a child is ever crying” This line shows us that in the poem Love will be personified as a child.
- Simile: In the poem we can see a simile in the last stanza through the last line that says: “ Nor seek him so given to flying”. This simile says that you have to leave love alone just as you would leave an argument child alone.
- Visual image: In the poem we can also find a visual image in the last stanza in the word “flying”. This word gives you a visual image that you have to let love go away and fly, that you have to let love go and continue.
5- In your opinion which is the most powerful line?
In my opinion the most power line is the one that says “What he promise, he breaks it” because this line says that love breaks every promise but in my opinion that is a particular case because they are Many types of love and not all Love break promises so i think that’s why for me is the most powerful, because in my opinion is not true in all the cases.
6- Do you agree with the speaker? Give reasons
I do not agree at all because i think that not all men are like that, they are Mens like that but not all. They are a lot if Honest and good men. I think her was a particular case.
