Hence, the suffering expressed through Dyer’s narrator can be not less than in part brought on by class error caused by philosophical-religious misalliance.

A “secular” interpreting of those strains may possibly argue that the narrator is being affected by unrequited (sensual) love. although, the distinction among an outward visual appeal of contentment and the narrator’s internal dying might then develop into perplexing. What prevents the protagonist from adopting the normal mournful visual appeal of the Petrarchan lover?

The protagonist’s “thoughtes” are in comparison to “the city that Sinon received and bought” (20). Sinon, a classical determine of non-erotic treachery, appears to be like Chris Butler 123 misplaced in a lover’s grievance; a connection with Helen’s occupation will be proposal extra becoming. it's fascinating to notice, for that reason, that “Troy” and “Sinon” additionally characteristic prominently in Shakespeare’s The Rape of Lucrece, in which Sinon back takes precedence over Helen.
