  2. Juan Ignacio Lopez Vargas says:

    Renaissance is the period of ”rapid transition”. In that time (15-16th century), there was a passage from feudal economy to an economy based on traid, rural agriculture to trade in the city: Little by little from monarchy to republic. Also there was a change in religion, from catholism to protestant. That is why terms like ”carpe diem”, ”memento mori”, ”tempus fugit” are presented and expressed in poems ”when I was fair and young”, ”poem 3” and ”epitaph”. This terms showed how time passed by very quickly, maybe without realising and not enjoying the most.
    ”Dust” in ”Epitaph” by Sir Walter Raleigh represents death. Also silence, lack of words. The persona insists on language and it’s relation to death when he says that it shuts up the story of the poems. Stories belong to the field of literature, therefore, time and death are not only attacking the persona’s youth, is attacking literature. The persona is sure that time will kill it but he’s also sure that it will be liberated by God.
    The three poems reflect the tension between the lyrical ‘I’ and ‘time’, through which the former opposes resistance to the pressure of the latter.
