    1. i found the article great since it explains in a very good way the ideas of the poem, it also shows that the poem’s rhyme sounds musiclal. I like the way it describes what the poem will be about because i think it is very clear to understand.
    “The poem is successful in its beautiful matching of the sense with the sound and pattern.”
    howver i do not totally agree with the article because it says that “ithout the use of adjectives and other figures of speech (similes and metaphors)” the truth s that the poem do have some metaphors and similes like ” as in their sphere”
    2.
    Love and romance : “pure love heaven did prepare”; “For in your eyes they sit”;“She winters, and keeps warm her note.”
    Nature: “When June is past, the fading rose”
    3. He compares nature with the beauty of the womnan. For this he uses similes, some images and metaphors, hyperbole. For example “The golden atoms of the day” is hyperbolic since is an exageration of the perfection of the lady. is an exageration because atoms are not made of gold.

    1. The article gives us a perfect description of the poem. It sounds musical and beautiful, as said in the article. The article, also, gives us a great perspective of what the poem will be about, and the ideas of the poet. This made the poem a bit clearer.

    2. Love. “For in your beauty’s orient deep”
    Romance. “She winters, and keeps warm her note.”
    Nature. “Ask me no more where those stars light,”

    3. This poem portrays very interesting symbolism, mainly in nature, such as hyperboles.

  5. Joaquin Olaizola says:

    1. I agree with this article because I think that explains very well each aspect of the poem. It says that the structure is beautiful and perfect and this matches with the perfection of the lady. I also believed this because everything seems to be made with dedication and focusing in details that is why its perfect as well as the women`s beauty.

    2. Love: “For in pure love heaven did prepare”.
    nature: “The phoenix builds her spicy nest”.
    romance: “For in your beauty’s orient deep”.

    3. He compares nature with her perfect beauty and uses images and metaphors to make this comparison. For example, he says that the lights of the stars and be seen in her eyes because they are incredible as nature. He says “for in your eyes they sit…” talking about the “star`s light”

  6. FranciscoRipoll says:

    *Yes I do agree with the article. Because it is said that the beauty of the girl is the center of attention.

    *THEMES:
    Love: “For in pure love heaven did prepare”
    Romance: — I did not find one.
    Nature: “golden atoms of the day”

    3) He make a comparison between the light of a star and the eyes of the girl, “Ask me no more where those stars ’light,That downwards fall in dead of night;For in your eyes they sit, and there” he make an hyperbolic comparison between the beauty of the girl and nature.

  7. Piky Loza says:

    2) Themes:
    Love: “For in pure love heaven did prepare”

    I believe that the article is very accurate and explains the poem in a clear and complete way. I would like to highlight the segment of the article where it describes the structure of the poem, because I could not agree more with the conclusion and the fact that everything sounds smooth, beautiful and musical. I also agree that the phoenix is compared to the beauty of the lady, and that hyperbole shows that the lady is the source of all living things on earth, or at least that is what the speaker says.

    2.
    Love: “For in pure love heaven did prepare”
    Romance: “For in your beauty’s orient deep”
    Nature: “The phoenix builds her spicy nest”

    3.
    The second paragraph displays a hyperbolic comparison between nature and the lady’s beauty. Phrases like “golden atoms” and “pure love heaven” show how perfect she is in the eyes of the speaker, and the last line talks about how it all enriches her hair (as well as her whole body).

  9. Belen Irazusta says:

    I agree with the fact that the article explains very well the topic of the poem. All what he explains about the questions that the voice asks not to ask that questions and all the things he says to describe his beloved woman. What is more, the article explains very clearly the structure of the stanza, although I agree with justo and sofi with the fact that the poem has a lot of figures of speech. For example, the fact that he uses the word STAR to describe her perfect and lightful eyes.
    Themes
    “Ask me no more where those stars light” I think that this quote is extremely beautiful and romantic. The fact that he compares her eyes with something so big, beautiful and infinite as the stars makes the reader understand the immense love that he has for her.
    “For in pure love heaven did prepare”
    The writer uses a lot of words referring to nature and I believe that it is because he wants to compare her to the most perfect and beautiful thing. For example, “rose” “flowers” “stars”

    Hyperboles:
    “For in your beauty’s orient deep
    These flowers as in their causes, sleep.”
    “The golden atoms of the day;
    For in pure love heaven did prepare”

  10. Agustin Campion says:

    I agree with this article because at first he begins his article saying that the beauty of the girl is the center of attention and how he analyzed what is proposed by the poet. which is telling us not to ask him more questions that he already knows the answer and in fact in every third line he answers it. for example when it says “Ask me no more where those stars ’light” he answers that those stars sit on their eyes. Moreover, when he express that the writer is in love of the beauty of the girl and how he focus on this.

    themes:
    -love: “For in pure love heaven did prepare
    Those powders to enrich your hair.”
    -romance: “your Beauties orient deep” he is being romantic by saying that his beauty is very big because it last until orient deep.
    -nature: “The phoenix builds her spicy nest”

    3- he compares the beauty of the girl with nature. “Ask me no more where those stars ’light,That downwards fall in dead of night;For in your eyes they sit, and there” here is very clear how he exagerates that the light of a star can be seen on the eyes of the girl.

    1. I have to agree with Justo in the idea of not agreeing with the article because of what is states about the figures of speech. This poem does have similes and metaphors. However, we do agree with the article when it talks about how the writer describes the beauty of the lady. He uses many pretty and romantic adjectives to describe the woman as the perfection on earth
    Themes
    Romance: “Ask me no more where those stars ’light,
    (…)For in your eyes they sit´´ this quotation is romantic as he compares the eyes of this woman to the stars. He says that are as pretty as stars or even more that they are prettier than stars
    Love: “For in pure love heaven did prepare´´, the man is saying that “heaven´´ especially made something for her, with love. She is so perfect that she deserves such majestic things. This shows the love that the voice felt towards her
    Nature: “When June is past, the fading rose´´

    2. The second and third stanza are very good examples of this.

  12. Federico Tear says:

    Yes I completely agree with the article. the structure is described perfectly but the thing that I find very interesting is how he involves god with the beauty of the lady. I agree with that, meaning that god is the reason we are who we are and the lady embraces that.

    Love: “For in your eyes they sit”
    Romance: “For in your sweet dividing throat”
    Nature: “The golden atoms of the day”

    “The golden atoms of the day” have increased the lady’s beauty. It was the larger imaginative conception of the God Himself to make the lady beautiful on earth,

  13. Sebastian Borda says:

    Do you agree with this article? Give reasons.
    Yes, I do agree with this article. I do because it mainly talks about how if this poem reflects the beauty of women, and I truly see how this idea is true because in every stanza there is something that conveys the perfect aspects of a woman with metaphors, for example: in the first stanza the writer talks about haw flowers don’t blossom because they don’t want to compete with women’s beauty, in the second stanza he mentions how the sun light, sent by heavens love, make her hair look better, in the third he acknowledges her perfect nose, in the fourth he compares the stars to her perfect eyes and finally in the fifth stanza he writes about a phoenix and compares it with the beauty of women, because they both are a magnificent being, that they both bring joy to earth and that women’s beauty will stand immortal like the phoenix ability to be reborn after his death.
    Themes
    Love, romance and nature. Account for this with quotations from the poem.
    Love: “for in pure love heaven did prepare Those powders to enrich your hair”
    Romance: I see the entire poem as a romantic piece of writing given or read to a woman to show her hw special and beautiful she is and no matter what she will stay like that.
    Nature: “When June is past” “golden atoms of the day” “when May is past” “stars”
    Hyperbolic comparison or analogy between his love and the most spectacular aspects of nature. Account for this with quotations.

    I see the whole fourth stanza as a hyperbolic comparison between his love and nature because here he writes that when he sees her beloved one he can see how beautiful her eyes are and says that it looks like stars have fallen from the night sky to settle in her eyes because they belong there, a beautiful home where they can stay and shine.
    “Ask me no more where those stars ’light,
    That downwards fall in dead of night;
    For in your eyes they sit, and there
    Fixed become, as in their sphere.”

  14. Majo Tear says:

    *Yes I do agree with the article. Particularly when it says at the end that the perfect pattern of stanzas and its organization of syllables, and the rhymes, makes the poem pretty to read, as the lady. And also the word endings like musical with the stanzas divided into two, the question and the answer makes it beautiful to the eye of a reader and poet, matching the beauty of his beloved.

    *THEMES:
    Love: “pure love heaven did prepare”
    Romance: The last stanza shows by saying “ask me no more […] for unto you” saying that he will love her no matter what.
    Nature: “June is past, the fading rose” as summer takes away the beauty of the spring.
    3)
    *Stars compared with her eyes and “sphere” meaning that her light and beauty comes from those eyes
    *”golden atoms” shows how the poet compares nature with her beautiful shining hair.

  15. Justo Fernandez Vidal says:

    I partly agree with the article. In one of the last paragraphs, this article states that Thomas Carew usen no figures of speech, when there are lots of them in the poem like the metaphor in the 4th stanza, which refers to the lady’s eyes as stars. This is a point in which I don’t agree with the article. However, I agree with other parts of the article, for example when it states that the speaker praises the lady for her beauty.I also agree with the fact that this poem’s rhym makes it a very musical one.
    -“For in pure love heaven did prepare” In this quote we can see that the voice of this poem is in love with a woman, prepared or created by God (heaven) not only to be loved by the voice, but also to be love itself.
    -“These flowers…”, different months (from different season) and the phoenix (a mythological odd bird) are all thing related to nature.
    -The phoenix, for me, represents nature, as, for example, trees “revive” on spring, from the dry and “dead” trees the winter left. This mythological bird revives from its onw ashes, and both share a common feature: both are inmortal, as they continue to revive through time.
    -As nature, the voice’s lover was created by God: “…love heaven did prepare”.
    – The phoenix is an allusion to the voice’s lover, because, as the phoenix, it is a mysterious creature: hoe can she be so beautiful?
