    A note: My literature teachers in college were influenced by the British and American critics called the NEW CRITICS. They advocated an impersonal approach to literary criticism, for example, you NEVER assume the voice in a poem is the poet's voice, and so you refer to that first person figure as the speaker. It prevents wrongful identification. And for this poem I wouldn't want to misconstrue the central figure.) Could we conclude there is a love-hate relationship between the speaker and the subject, perhaps like Catullus's I LOVE, I HATE or is that too extreme? The speaker is very pointed in his negative reactions, It's almost as if he feels the woman should be aware of her personality quirks, and he is bothered that she is completely oblivious. She comes across as someone who is devastatingly intelligent and admirable in some things, and in others - let's just she disappoints the speaker and he is pained by these lapses in her personality. My favorite section of your poem is the Latin closing passage - that's what made think of Catullus. I've added this poem and WATERS to my Poetry Collection! ! Both merit re-readings to bring me closer to the poems' undercurrents of meaning. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
