Come Sleep! Oh Sleep

Come Sleep! Oh Sleep

by

Sir Philip Sidney

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

We won't lie to you (never, Shmoopers): Sidney can be tough going. "Come Sleep! O Sleep" is no exception. The continuous adding of clauses in lines 1-4 can be overwhelming at times, as can some of Sidney's strange phrases ("shield me from out") and old-school words like "prease." With a little Shmoop love in these matters, however, Sidney is totally conquerable, even (dare we say it?) enjoyable.
