ha

so the point of this paper is to "dicuss elizabeth barret browning's portrayal of bodies..." in sonnets from the portuguese. so i went thru, found all the poems that were significantly bodyrelated, and now i'm giving myself lil summaries of them so i can just go thru and write it all up. here's my summary of the one i just read "she so sick, he so good. oh the conundrums". that about covers it, too.

                      Straightway I was 'ware,
So weeping, how a mystic Shape did move
Behind me, and drew me backward by the hair:
And a voice said in mastery, while I strove,--
'Guess now who holds thee?'--'Death', I said. But, there,
The silver answer rang,--'Not Death, but Love'.


she's so good...
