JOHN DONNE CANONIZATION PDF

Buy Study Guide The poet demands that some complainer leave him alone to love. The complainer should turn his attention elsewhere, and nobody is hurt by the love. They are not sinking ships or causing floods, delaying spring or causing others to die, or supporting wars or lawsuits. The poet and his lover take their own chances together; they are unified in their love.

The Canonization The poem features images typical of the Petrarchan sonnet , yet they are more than the "threadbare Petrarchan conventionalities". A reference to the Renaissance idea in which the eagle flies in the sky above the earth while the dove transcends the skies to reach heaven. Cleanth Brooks argues that the phoenix, which means rebirth, is a particularly apt analogy, since it combines the imagery of birds and of burning candles, and adequately expresses the power of love to preserve, though passion consumes.

Analyses and applications in criticism[ edit ] In his analysis of "The Canonization", critic Leonard Unger focuses largely on the wit exemplified in the poem.

In his collection of critical essays, The Well Wrought Urn , Brooks writes that a poet "must work by contradiction and qualification," and that paradox "is an extension of the normal language of poetry, not a perversion of it".

He neither intends to mock religion by exalting love beside it nor aims to poke fun at love by comparing it to sainthood. Instead, Brooks argues, the apparent contradiction in taking both seriously translates into a truer account of both love and spirituality. Indeed, almost any insight important enough to warrant a great poem apparently has to be stated in such terms. Instead, paradox enables poetry to escape the confines of logical and scientific language.

A critique by John Guillory points out the superficiality of his logic. Instead of a tidy, "self-contained urn", the poem depicts a "chain of discourses and representations", such as the legend about the lovers, poems about their love, praise from those who read these poems, the saintly invocations of the lovers, and their responses to these requests.

Donne’s Poetry

In the poem, the poet demands the complainer to stop hindering their lives and leave them alone so that they could continue loving each other without any hindrance. The lover says that there is nobody in the world who is being hurt by their love. Likewise, the lover wants to prove that his love is not creating any hindrance in the society. The lovers are compared to candles that will burn out on their own.
