    A beautiful classic poem by master Marlowe is indeed deeply meaningful about the source of love - whoever loves loves not at first sight? It is an immortal question he puts and finishes the piece for the time being! An immortal poem to read! (Report) Reply

    Yes, this is a heavy staff.It seems Epic.
    Some may consider Iliad and Odisea almost boring.Cant find any reason to be reading such a endlessly narration about little battles, unlucky heroes, cokmplaining mothers and Gods-games.
    It takes a litltle time to get the taste and it takes even longer to be really engaged to the lecture.
    I like Homero.And this is almost Homerian Poetry, if I am alouded to say. Can be difficult to keep attention and read it carefully but when you do, you wont regret... (Report) Reply

    As Francis Drake once Said\ROund thy waist I'll build a Kirtle. Makes one realiz that the Great Men and Poets read each other and learn therefrom. Try to find Marlowe's 'Passionate Shepherd to his Love' and the Satirical response of Sir Francis Drake.WQorth the effort

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
