Another In Class Essay

Sidney uses poetic devices to convey a negative image towards desire. He changes his diction, uses imagery and restates the meanings behind his ideas. He see's desire as evil and want his reader to understand his suffering. 

As you continue to read, you notice his use of diction in every line. Repetition and diction are used together to repeat how damaging desire could be. He has a negative attitude towards this topic, and wants others to see it through his eyes. His beliefs are strong and reinstated throughout the text. By finding a connection between emotion and desire, we feel for his troubling experiences. 

One is able to image his troubled attitude towards desire as he states, "With price of mangled mind, thy worthless ware." Desire comes with a price, and a life lesson to be learned. It's meant to destroy someone and we see that as we continue to read. "But then in vain thou hast my ruin sought," this starts a list of tragic outcomes as we enter his mind and learn why he feels this way.

His negative thoughts for desire become a warning label for readers. He allows us into his mind and shows us his experiences with desire. His attitude is strong for he commits to comparing desire and destruction. He uses personal experience to convey his message and ends with, "Desiring naught but how to kill desire."
