English Renissance Priod

England’s official religion changed 4 times within 30 years, as a result of King Henry VIII’s love obsessions. The concept of what was the true church and true worship became a major issue. Religion, at times, represented a threat to political authority. While religion was challenging political authority, scientific discoveries challenged the authority of religion. There was 4 shifts in religious belief. English Renaissance literature had a strong religious focus, as well as a focus on man. Literature in this period fuses themes of humanism and religion. Art was a focus during the renaissance. English Renissance Background Video

"The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd"BY SIR WALTER RALEGHIf all the world and love were young,And truth in every Shepherd’s tongue,These pretty pleasures might me move,To live with thee, and be thy love.Time drives the flocks from field to fold,When Rivers rage and Rocks grow cold,And Philomel becometh dumb,The rest complains of cares to come.The flowers do fade, and wanton fields,To wayward winter reckoning yields,A honey tongue, a heart of gall,Is fancy’s spring, but sorrow’s fall.Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of Roses,Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posiesSoon break, soon wither, soon forgotten:In folly ripe, in reason rotten.Thy belt of straw and Ivy buds,The Coral clasps and amber studs,All these in me no means can moveTo come to thee and be thy love.But could youth last, and love still breed,Had joys no date, nor age no need,Then these delights my mind might moveTo live with thee, and be thy love.

The Passionate Shepherd to His LoveBY CHRISTOPHER MARLOWECome live with me and be my love,And we will all the pleasures prove,That Valleys, groves, hills, and fields,Woods, or steepy mountain yields.And we will sit upon the Rocks,Seeing the Shepherds feed their flocks,By shallow Rivers to whose fallsMelodious birds sing Madrigals.And I will make thee beds of RosesAnd a thousand fragrant posies,A cap of flowers, and a kirtleEmbroidered all with leaves of Myrtle;A gown made of the finest woolWhich from our pretty Lambs we pull;Fair lined slippers for the cold,With buckles of the purest gold;A belt of straw and Ivy buds,With Coral clasps and Amber studs:And if these pleasures may thee move,Come live with me, and be my love.The Shepherds’ Swains shall dance and singFor thy delight each May-morning:If these delights thy mind may move,Then live with me, and be my love.

Sonnet 39BY SIR PHILIP SIDNEYCome Sleep! O Sleep, the certain knot of peace,The baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe,The poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release,Th' indifferent judge between the high and low.With shield of proof shield me from out the preaseOf those fierce darts despair at me doth throw:O make in me those civil wars to cease;I will good tribute pay, if thou do so.Take thou of me smooth pillows, sweetest bed,A chamber deaf to noise and blind to light,A rosy garland and a weary head:And if these things, as being thine by right,Move not thy heavy grace, thou shalt in me,Livelier than elsewhere, Stella's image see.

Pastoral conventions include:• Shepherds addressing or describing beloved shepherds• A natural setting that seems perfect in every respect• Simple pleasures for example singing contestsPastoral poetry uses imagery to create an idealized portrait of nature.Look for universal themes about love, youth, and nature.

Sonnet 35BY EDMUND SPENSERMY hungry eyes, through greedy covetiseStill to behold the object of their pain, With no contentment can themselves suffice;But, having, pine; and, having not, complain.For, lacking it, they cannot life sustain; And, having it, they gaze on it the more;In their amazement like Narcissus vain,Whose eyes him starv’d: so plenty makes me poor.Yet are mine eyes so filled with the storeOf that fair sight, that nothing else they brook, But loathe the things which they did like before,And can no more endure on them to look. All this world’s glory seemeth vain to me, And all their shows but shadows, saving she.
