This essay studies three works of literature: My Papa’s Waltz, by Theodore Roethke, The Passionate Shepherd to His Love, by Christopher Marlowe; and The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd, by Sir Walter Raleigh; and discusses the human experience, relating the poems to the writer’s own life experiences.
“Literature is the great humanizer. It can cross all boundaries and evoke emotions in everyone. Certain pieces of literature affect some more than others, based on their own individual experiences. This paper will examine three poems: “My Papa’s Waltz, by Theodore Roethke, The Passionate Shepherd to His Love, by Christopher Marlowe; and The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd,” by Sir Walter Raleigh; and their relationship to my life.”
