Deconstruction in "To His Coy Mistress"
Questions for response
lines 27-30 - "worms shall try/ That long-preserved virginity,/ And your quaint honor turn to dust,/ And into ashes all my lust"
How would this "death" inform a deconstructionist reading of the goal of the speaker's love?
line 45 - "our sun"
What is the function of this word according to a deconstructionist interpretation? How would its effect on the "morning dew" (line 34) and its relationship to the "instant fires" (line 36) inform this response?
