Transcript of 1.05 Tone

1.05 Tone
Poem
"When I was fair and young"
by Queen Elizabeth I, circa 1585

List at least three examples of diction in the text that add to the overall tone. Explain how each word contributes to the emotional power of the piece.
"Fair" and "young" are good choices of words as it conveys to the audience that the author was highly attractive. "Scorn" conveys a strong negative emotion. It is stronger than using the word "dislike." Importune is another word that conveys strong emotion; it is an urgent, persistent, and intense request. "Fair" and "young" gives the poem a more soft and light tone which directly contrasted the intensity involved with the words "scorn" and "importune".
List at least three examples of imagery in the text that add to the overall tone. Explain how each description contributes to the emotional power of the piece.
Fair and young gave a visualization of Queen Elizabeth I's physical attributes when she was youthful. Scorn gives an image of a hard face and attitude, which again directly contrast the softer, gentler image of young and fair. With "Weeping eyes" and "sighing hearts" I could see Elizabeth I's rejected and dejected suitors. Where the author could of chosen more moderate, mild words, she used stronger words to communicate her severe emotions.


List the examples of important details the author chose to include. Explain how these details contribute to the emotional power of the piece.
Fair and young gives detail about her physical attributes and tells us why she was so lusted after; contributing an heartfelt emotion to the poem. How much men she severely brought to woe and despair by her scorn communicated a somewhat sorrowful emotion.
List the examples of important details the author chose to omit. Explain how these missing details contribute to the emotional power of the piece.
The author did not include how her attitude change after she was no longer fair, young and favored by grace — to avoid impeding a mood present in the poem. Additionally, the author did not include how she was change to no longer fair, young, and favored by grace; possibly to avoid impeding the mood too.

When I was fair and young, then favor graced me.
Of many was I sought their mistress for to be,
But I did scorn them all and answered them therefore:
Go, go, go, seek some other where, importune me no more.

How many weeping eyes I made to pine in woe,
How many sighing hearts I have not skill to show,

But I the prouder grew and still this spake therefore:
Go, go, go, seek some other where, importune me no more.

Then spake fair Venus' son, that brave victorious boy,
Saying: You dainty dame, for that you be so coy,
I will so pluck your plumes as you shall say no more:
Go, go, go, seek some other where, importune me no more.

As soon as he had said, such change grew in my breast
That neither night nor day I could take any rest.
Wherefore I did repent that I had said before:
Go, go, go, seek some other where, importune me no more.
Analyze the author’s use of syntax in this text. Are the sentences long or short? Does the author use punctuation to slow down the pace, or short phrases to quicken it?
The sentences in the poem are medium. Her usage of punctuation and short phrases set a calm and consistent mood in the poem.
Select a tone (or multiple tones) from the list of Tone Words. Explain why this tone is the best way to describe this text.
I say fatalistic, and ironic tones best fit the text. It was fatalistic for the author to see her haughty and prideful attitude ruin her beauty, and ironic, as pride comes before the fall (dramatic irony).
