“To His Coy Mistress” --Andrew Marvell What can you infer from the first four lines about time? What about coyness, time, and crime? (what do you think the speaker’s interest is? )
Lines 5-10 What’s up with the flood and the conversion of the Jews? What specifically could the object of the speaker’s affection be refusing the speaker?
Lines 11-20 Why does he use the word “vegetable”? Why does the speaker go to such lengths to show how long (and slow) he will praise his “Lady”?
21-24 What is “Time’s winged chariot”? How does that play with the image of a vast eternity of desert standing before them?
25-30 Why won’t her beauty be found? What honor is he talking about? Why will her honor turn to dust?

Stanza 3 Why does he use the images of “amorous birds of prey”? Why devour time?
