Kijah Blakeney January 23, 2018Prd 6 “For Not He Looked Upon Her” George Gascoigne In “For That He Looked Not upon Her,” a poem by sixteenth-century poet George Gascoigne, expressed the theme “love can bring misery” in his poem “For Not He Looked Upon Her”, the author develop a attitude through imagery, metaphors and diction to display “the temptation of love”.One good example of Gascoigne’s attitude using metaphor is…In the poem, line 5, he writes ” the mouse which once hath broken out of trap (Gascoigne 13).Gascoigne uses the metaphor in line 5, which represent the mouse being vivid. Which he compares the mouse being himself and the trap being the relationship, which being caught in the “trap” goes back to the theme. In the process, he got hurt, physically, mentally and emotionally, because he trusted the relationship and the women too much. And going back into the relationship can result in him being trapped again.Furthermore of Gascoigne using imagery would be…In line 9, Gascoigne chose to use the words “scorched fly” to show the speaker’s pain and misery ( Gascoigne 13 ).Gascoigne gives the readers the image, that the scorched fly was burned, and causing him to be wounded and can’t recover fully. For Gascoigne to be the fly, he is trying to say when he and the women went together the first time, he got hurt so bad, he can’t never get past it.Even so Gascoigne helped me point out diction through the entire poem.For example, in line 1-2 and 14, he also says “You must not wonder, though you think it strange, to see me hold my louring head so low.” and “Because your blazing eyes my bale have bread,”.The use of the word louring, which means gloomy, and bale, which means misery, strongly expresses that he is depressed. This connects to the theme, because it easily point out the tone and mood used for this poem, displaying MISERY.One can see that, The speaker came of calling himself that he is so easily deceived. Within the poem, the figurative language that Gascoigne uses not only shows the speaker’s attitude, but it also makes the word MISERY.
