Mountain of Hope
Transcript of Mountain of Hope
Raleigh personifies time as someone who takes away "our youth, our joys, and all we have, and pays us but with age and dust" who also closes our "shuts up the story" of our life after we have aged. Saying that we go through life and it's pointless, we begin with all we could want but end up losing it.
Mountain of Hope
Jorge L. Tinoco
Walsingham by Sir Walter Raleigh
‘As you came from the holy land
Met you not with my true love
By the way as you came?’
‘How shall I know your true love,
That have met many one,
I went to the holy land,
That have come, that have gone?’
‘She is neither white, nor brown,
But as the heavens fair;
There is none hath a form so divine
In the earth, or air.’
‘Such a one did I meet, good sir,
Such an angelic face,
Who like a queen, like a nymph, did appear
By her gait, by her grace.’
‘She hath left me here all alone,
All alone, as unknown,
Who sometimes did me lead with herself,
And men loved as her own.’
‘What’s the cause that she leaves you alone,
And a new way doth take,
Who loved you once as her own,
And her joy did you make?’
‘I have lov’d her all my youth;
But now old, as you see,
Love likes not the falling fruit
From the withered tree.’
‘Know that love is a careless child,
And forgets a promise past;
He is blind, he is deaf when he list,
And in faith never fast.’
‘His desire is a dureless content,
And a trustless joy:
He is won with a world of despair,
And is lost with a toy.’
‘Of womenkind such indeed is the love,
(Or the word ‘love’ abus’d),
Under which many childish desires
And conceits are excus’d.’
‘But true love is a durable fire,
In the mind ever burning,
Never sick, never dead, never cold,
From itself never turning.’
The Author's Epitaph, Made by Himself by Sir Walter Raleigh
Even such is time, which takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, and all we have,
And pays us but with age and dust,
Who in the dark and silent grave
When we have wandered all our ways
Shuts up the story of our days,
And from which earth, and grave, and dust,
The Lord shall raise me up, I trust.
Weep No More, Sad Fountain by Anonymous
Weep you no more, sad fountains;
What need you flow so fast?
Look how the snowy mountains
Heaven’s sun doth gently waste.
But my sun’s heavenly eyes
View not your weeping,
That now lies sleeping
Softly, now softly lies
Sleep is a reconciling,
A rest that peace begets:
Doth not the sun rise smiling
When fair at even he sets?
Rest you then, rest, sad eyes,
Melt not in weeping,
While she lies sleeping,
Softly, now softly lies
YOU HAVE REACHED THE "PEAK" OF HOPE! NOW WE HOPEFULLY HOPE THAT HIS WAS HELPFUL
Song : To Celia
by Ben Jonson
Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
And leave a kiss but in the cup,
And I'll not look for wine.
The thirst that from the soul doth rise
Doth ask a drink divine,
But might I of Jove's nectar sup,
I would not change for thine.
I sent thee late a rosy wreath,
Not so much honouring thee
As giving it a hope that there
It could not withered be.
But thou thereon didst only breathe
And sent'st it back to me,
Since when it breathes and smells, I swear,
Not of it self but thee.
Sonnet 11 by
Lady Mary Worth
You endless torments that my rest oppress,
How long will you delight in my sad pain?
Will never Love your favour more express?
Shall I still live, and ever feel disdain?
Alas, now stay, and let my grief obtain
Some end; feed not my heart with sharp distress.
Let me once see my cruel fortunes gain
At least release, and long-felt woes redress.
Let not the blame of cruelty disgrace
The honoured title of your godhead Love;
Give not just cause for me to say a place
Is found for rage alone on me to move.
O quickly end, and do not long debate
My needful aid, lest help do come too late.
Written The Night Before His Execution
by: Chidiock Tichbourne
My prime of youth is but a frost of cares;
My feast of joy is but a dish of pain;
My crop of corn is but a field of tares;
And all my good is but vain hope of gain;
My life is fled, and yet I saw no sun;
And now I live, and now my life is done.
The spring is past, and yet it hath not sprung;
The fruit is dead, and yet the leaves be green;
My youth is gone, and yet I am but young;
I saw the world, and yet I was not seen;
My thread is cut, and yet it is not spun;
And now I live, and now my life is done.
I sought my death, and found it in my womb,
I looked for life, and saw it was a shade,
I trod the earth and knew it was my tomb,
And now I die, and now I am but made:
The glass is full, and now my glass is run,
And now I live, and now my life is done.
This poem is about a person trying to make another feel better because they recently lost someone they loved very much. He/She tries to tell them that the wounds will heal in time just like "snowy mountains" are "[gently] waste" by the
Speaker / Subject
: A person who has experience the lost of a loved one before and knows that time is the only cure for the pain.
: The subject is a very depressed person who can't get over their lost. They can't stop crying and are miserable - they need help!
This poem has a structure which resembles the water falling down from a fountain. This can mean that the poem is an actual event that took place in the life of the author.
The main metaphor taking place in this poem is the mourner being the "sad fountain". This tells the reader that the mourner's tears (grief/sorrow) are endless just like the water of a fountain.
: One important symbolism in the poem is the
which means happiness and new hope. Just like the sad fountain the sun can also be person, in this case a very important one as they are the "center" of their life (Maybe even the speaker)
"Look how the snowy mountains
Heaven's sun doth gently waste"
"Doth not the sun rise smiling
When fair at even he sets?"
This poem is about a girl who can't be with her love one, and this is so hard and painful for her that she wants to "obtain some end" (Suicidal). In the last line she hopes that the "needful aid" doesn't come "too late".
Speaker / Subject
: A girl who is not content with love (personified) and she suffers a lot from it.
: The subject is a personified "love" who she created in the poem. The speaker complains throughout the poem to this "love" on how unfair he is being to her.
This is clearly a Sonnet, but the structure of the poem is divided into different emotional states of the speaker : Depression/Anger - Plea for relief - Threatening - Plea for help.
: The use of specific vocabulary like "endless torment", "sharp distress", "cruelty" are effective enforcements to speaker's voice and give specific details on how she feels really feels.
: Rhetorical questions are used from line 2-4.
"Will never Love your favour more express?
Shall I still live, and ever feel disdain?"
"O quickly end, and do not long debate
My needful aid, lest help do come too late."
A man is confessing his love to a woman who does not respond back the way he feels. He would like for her to pledge her love by gazing upon him. The man desires to live happily with her.
Speaker: He is blindly in love with Celia. Even though she does not express the same affections he hopes and believes she will declare love for him one day.
Subject: By returning the wreath Celia indicates she doesn't feel the same love. She barely acknowledges his love towards her.
Sir Walter Raleigh's epitaph (his tombstone inscription) written by himself to describe his final out look on life and how he believes there is an afterlife.
Subject and Speaker
Metaphor: The speaker tells Celia to "drink" to him with her eyes. Eyes can't actually drink, he utilizes "drink" as pledging love with one's eyes.
The entire poem is written as a single continuous thought with slight pauses through commons in most of the lines to divide the lines into separate subjects. This makes the poem emulate life in that it is continuous with no breaks and it ends abruptly for Raleigh.
Symbolism: The wreath he gave her as a token of his love did not wither and it continues to grow. It represents immortality and his hopes for eternal love and a relationship with Celia.
" As giving it a hope that there
It could not withered be"
A man is reflecting on the fact his life is going to end. He regrets not being able to live life to the fullest nor become a well known person in the world. There is no longer hope for him to survive another day.
It creates the tone of impending death. This is due to the subject matter and that it was written as he, Raleigh, was sentenced to execution. This is then reverted to hope through the final line where he is trusting his "lord" to guide him to heaven. This leads the reader to think both death and hope can be very closely related.
Speaker: The speaker is feeling remorse about not having a chance to do much more with his life. Pain and darkness took over his youth entirely, he won't get the opportunity to fulfill his dreams in this world.
Subject: The reader might feel pity towards him since he will no longer exist on this planet. And he didn't get to have a satisfying life, instead a got a painful short life.
Each line are two contradicting ideas demonstrating frustration towards his youth and the fact he is condemned.
The poem is 2 people discussing what they believe to be the idea of real love where one of them is a man who has just been left by his love and he is struggling to understand why.
The repetition of the last line highlights the hope he has lost completely.
Speaker and Subject
Misery: He is unhappy about not being able to achieve anything during his life time. Did not get to completely experience life to the max and is about to die in a short period of time
The poem is from the perspective of a man who has just lost his lover and is now conversing with a gentleman who is helping the man to rationalize why she left him and what true love actually is. This is used as a vehicle to express the poets beliefs about the subject matter and to give an example that infatuation is not synonymous with love in an attempt to convince those who think otherwise.
Repetition: By using "My" in the beginning of each sentence in the first stanza it indicates how he is reflecting on the idea it is life ending in any moment.
Metaphor: He sees his joy as a "dish of pain", instead of having a plentiful and easy youth it was filled with agony.It emphasizes the dreadful life he has been living until now but can't do anything about with the few hours he has left.
It is structured in stanzas to divide each person's dialogue from the other's. This morphs the poem from an opinion piece about what the poet thinks about love into a story about a lost love making it more interesting for the reader.
Towards the end of the poem true love is represented in a metaphor as "a durable flame". That it is "[n]ever sick, never dead, never cold". This is the man accepting, the notion from the other man, that what his lover had for him was not true love. Hyperbole is also used when his lover is described "as the heavens fair" and she "hath a form so divine" because meant to be such a perfect person. That so called "perfect person" still fell victim to the false impression of love she felt, giving true love an almost intangible quality to it.
"My feast of joy is but a dish of pain"
" I saw the world, and yet I was not seen"
"And now I live, and now my life is done."
The tone is reflective and introspective, this is achieved through the teaching of the man from the holy land
"But true love is a durable fire, In the mind ever burning, never sick, never dead, never cold," The man learns, and the poet attempts to tell the reader, what true love is meant to be.
"Know that love is a careless child, and forgets promise past" The man from the holy land says that love makes someone change and not realize what they have and whether or not it's true love. This is meant to convince the reader of the poet's opinion on the matter
The tone is comforting and consoling. This is supported with phrases and words like...
Stanzas: There are four stanzas but they work in pairs. The first two focal points are on the analogy of his love and desire for Celia through the wine and thirst. The third one revolves around the hope he has as he desires her ti immortalize the beauty of the wreath. And at the end of the fourth allows one to appreciate the affect Celia had upon the wreath.
These stages of emotions gives the poem more variety instead of just having one angry negative emotion as a whole - it shows a change in the speaker's character.
Infatuated: The speaker believes this woman is above everything and her love and beauty are much more powerful than the gods.
The poem is written in the 1st person perspective and refers to mortality and the possibility of salvation through faith.
This gives the reader a better understanding of what's really going on on her head, for example, that she is losing all hope in love and she also seems a bit suicidal. (threatening love)
"Even such is time, which takes in trust our youth, our joys, and all we have" These two lines personify time to make it seem as it is a thief who was wrongfully entrusted with our worldly things who then takes them from us.
C-ROD 3RD PERIOD!
"And from which earth, and grave, and dust, The Lord shall raise me up, I trust." Raleigh has hope that, even though he has had his youth replaced with age and dust, his faith will carry him up to a better place.
Hope is something we can lose, gain, have, ask for, and even gift! "Where everything else fails... faith and hope stand strong".
The speaker's tone changes throughout the poem depending on what emotional state they are. It varies from anger to a pleading tone at times, but mostly she is complaining (threatening).
