Hearts refuse to admit, or omit the principles, or jumble them up, or refuse to come back to the purpose while offering a verdict. the 3 poets are beady-eyed specialists on failure. finally, the place matters can purely become aware of their actual nature in terms of the divine it concerns no matter if the dialog works. Remarkably, every one poet - regardless of their very various devotional backgrounds - makes use of related units of tropes to enquire difficulties: enigma, aposiopesis (breaking off), chiasmus, subjectio (asking then answering a question), and antanaclasis (repetition with a difference). established like a language, the sense of right and wrong is tortured, rewritten, learn, and damaged as much as engineer a formal reaction. contemplating the college as an uncomfortable extrusion of the divine into the standard, the rhetoric of the moral sense transforms Protestant into prosthetic poetics. It strikes among early smooth theology, rhetoric, and aesthetic thought to provide unique, scholarly, and devoted readings of the nice metaphysical poets. issues lined contain boredom, torture, graffiti, tattoos, anthologizing, resentment, tears, dirt, casuistry, and opportunism.
