‘To His Coy Mistress’ is a comedic depiction of unrequited love, showing how love can be represented in a light-hearted way whilst communicating the deeper significance of what it means to feel this way about someone. Likewise, ‘Sonnet 43’ presents us with a serious topic, portrayed in a carefree way. ‘To His Coy Mistress’ is set into three stanzas of unequal length, each showing a new stage in the relationship. The beginnings of each stanza are a giveaway as to what we should expect from it. ‘Had we’ tells us that the persona is fantasising about what could happen, and that the images created here have in fact not happened yet.

Alfie Rees-Glinos ‘To His Coy Mistress’ ‘To His Coy Mistress’ is a heritage poem from a male’s perspective of loving a woman. The narrator is male and he is trying to persuade the women that he loves her with a deep and utter passion and to prove this he ‘advises her’ to sleep with him. Throughout the poem, strong feelings of the delicacy of virginity and how the male character will continue to love her, no matter what she decides upon. A significant aspect of the poem where strong feelings are presented is when Marvell writes, ‘till the conversion of the Jews’. By this he means that he loves his lover and will always do so, until the days when the Jews convert to Christianity which even today seems extremely unlikely, so therefore his love for her will never die out.
We begin with Jack and Algernon are having a chat about ‘Bunburying’ where both show conflicting views on the subject. The conversation moves onto the matter of love and how they have both fallen in love and subsequently both arranged to be christened in the evening of the name Ernest to impress their ladies. Gwendolen and Cecily then question Jack and Algernon on their deception as Ernest. The ladies are satisfied with their answers and they fall into each other’s arms just as Lady Bracknell walks in. Cecily tells Lady Bracknell how she is engaged to Algernon and after much questioning gives her consent to the marriage.
The To his coy mistress In Andrew Marvell's poem "To His Coy Mistress" mirrors the the idea of "carpe diem." The speaker is trying to persuade the woman he is pursuing to live for today. The speaker uses three tactics or allusions to convince his mistress to see the situation his way. These tactics or idealism,realism, and sythesis or what I like to call the "therefore method" to to exaggerate his feelings and sway his mistress to sleep with him.

To His Coy Mistress The poem, To His Coy Mistress, by Andrew Marvell brings out some actions that some of us have experienced or even thought about in this concise poem. This poem is very appealing to the male senses and what some make are like. Some women could be thought of when this is read. Andrew Marvell puts it in words that make it seem as if it was very acceptable. In stanza one Mark Taylor stated that “thou” and “you” appear interchangeable: “Thou by the Indian Ganges side/ Shouldst rubies find” and “An hundred years should go to praise/ Thine eye, and on the forehead gaze” but “I would/love you ten years before the flood/ and you should, if you please, refuse,” “And the last age should show your heart,” and “Lady, you deserve this state.” (Taylor, Mark The Explicator.
The poem is structured in rhyming couplets and is also structured in a court-like argument with the first stanza stating what the man intends to do to her, much like when someone puts forth their opinion in the court. In the second stanza, the man starts off with the word ‘BUT’ then goes on further to talk about their lack of time, life being too short, and how it is possible the young lady might die a virgin – “Thy beauty
“To His Coy Mistress” Fuck me or die, shall your youthful moist skin dry up without the warmth and pleasures of the erupting volcano. This is a strong statement intended to get the undivided attention of the reader. Andrew Marvell has cleverly hidden this message with poetic devices in his short story, “To His Coy Mistress.” This poem is about an older man who pursues a young virgin woman with poetic devises that mocks the ladies’ desire to wait before she decides to engage in sexual pleasures. Some may say her reasons are religious, fear of her God, or is it really fear of this mans penis? Whatever the reason may be it is her reason and he constantly chooses to pursue her.
n Marvell’s time, "mistress" also means a woman who acts as a patron, or sponsor, for an artist or artists. This sense of the word allows us to imagine a new spin on things. If the speaker’s mistress is a patron, perhaps he’s trying to convince her to sponsor him for a new project, or, in short, to give him money. This interpretation complicates things. See, the poem speaks literally about sex – it references the mistress’s "long-preserved" virginity.
Grandpa also had a garden. My favorite vegetable that I would like plant and taking out was the tomatoes. My grandmother loved tomatoes. Every time we picked one out the garden, it would be green. I always wondered why she wanted it while it was green, but then that’s when I would learn how to fry green tomatoes.
