By William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
When ,in disgrace with Fortune and men’s eyes ,
I all alone beweep my outcast state ,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself ,and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him ,like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least,
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee ,and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth ,sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love rememb’red such wealth brings,
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
The whole poem expresses the changes of the author's inner feelings:
Which are from disappoint to hopeful,from negative to positive,
from desperate to affectionate ,from self-abased to confident.
Discloses the desire of appetite ,lust and power and proposes that appetite is the basic desire ,lust has its own duality ,the desire for power is a danger and finally the paper gives a way to deal with the desires.
It is a poem which helps us sense the greatness of love,which is the center of his life,the sunshine on a cloudy day.
