Okay, who do you think is speaking? A man? A woman? Who is being talked to? What are they saying in plain English?

'find the implication behind' sounds like either

- why is the speaker saying this

- what is the common theme of all of these similes, metaphors, etc

Can you get some clarification from your teacher?

I think he's describing his emotion of love, not the woman he loves. His feelings are fresh and spring like, they will endure for ever. It seems to imply that he has to go away from her but he will come back.

Does anyone have any comments that they know of on the treatment of gender in this poem. I don't think his love will last forever. He compares his love to things that have endings. He says until the rocks melt with the sun, he doesn't say even if the rocks melt with the sun. Also, what does the girl say? The only thing we know of her is that she's female (bonnie lass) and that she's expected to wait (upwards of ten thousand years) for her man to return. Any comments or websites would be wonderful. Thanks, B.

O my Luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June:
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my Dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

(The seas go dry and the sun melts rocks - it's the end of the world, I'd say."Some say the world will end in fire ... " Frost though, not Revelations.)

Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun:
And I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve!
And fare thee weel, awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!

(She doesn't have to wait chastely, I wouldn't think.)

Andie, you haven't said what your project is, so I don't have much idea about it either.

As for why Robert Burns wrote this poem, if that's not explained in the life story information you have, can't you just use your imagination, based on the meaning of the poem? I assume you are studying the poem as literature, not as history. What's it matter if you imagine something that didn't happen? Just because a poem is written in the first person doesn't mean it's autobiographical. Burns could have been writing for an imagined situation

As for why he wrote at all. Could be it was something he was put on earth to do. It was his special talent, he probably felt fulfilled in doing it, and it was his portal to immortality.

I have an english assignment to write an essay that identify and analyzes the figurative language and tone to show how they reveal the theme. The poem must have 4 different types of figurative language. I was wondering what parts of "A Red Red Rose" you all would suggest using to identify the theme. Any comments appreciated =D.

Hi Ig,

I like this poem very much. We can not exactly say who is the speaker. whoever be, He says that his love for him or her is very intense . It is not just the colour of the rose but deeper than that.

It's a her:

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass

That's assuming it was not a spoonerism and the dude's name was really Lonnie Bass, right.

I JUST TALKED ABOUT THIS POEM IN MY ENGLISH CLASS. ITS ABOUT A WOMEN WHO'S HUSBAND IS CHEATING ON HER AND SHE WANTS REVENGE. SHE PLANS TO POISON THE WOMEN NAMED PAULINE ALONG WITH A WOMEN NAMED ELISE. SHE IS A VERY DARK AND EVIL WOMEN AND SAYS THAT SHE WISHES SHE COULD CARRY POISON AROUND WITH HER EVERYWHERE AND KILL EVERYONE WHO MADE HER MAD. IT IS A VERY DARK POEM AND BROWNING WAS A CONTRIVERSAL WRITER IN HIS DAY. HAPPY TO HELP! =)

Moderator, I suggest you apply some rule against mischievous rubbish and delete the last post.

And on the evidence of it, I suggest that any posts from the same source be treated as insincere unless proved otherwise.

Yes, must be. Very odd though. I see from Search that it's years since RB's 'Laboratory' was discussed in Emule.

So I withdraw my request for young Gregory to be erased and banished. Just sin-binned until he learns to spell at least 'woman' correctly.

This incident has added to my poetic education. I hadn't read 'Laboratory' before.

Is 'dance at the King's' a metaphor for swing on the gallows? Thought so on first reading, but it doesn't seem that in stanza 6.

I just thought the cheerful little dear was cooling her heels in the apothecary shop, waiting for the mixture to be prepared, while she is believed to be praying in church. Better to be waiting there than in the castle, where a party is going on, she is musing.


He is with her; and they know that I know
Where they are, what they do: they believe my tears flow
While they laugh, laugh at me, at me fled to the drear
Empty church, to pray God in, for them! -- I am here.

Grind away, moisten and mash up thy paste,
Pound at thy powder, -- I am not in haste!
Better sit thus, and observe thy strange things,
Than go where men wait me and dance at the King's.
