To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time (Gather ye rosebuds) Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- Is this poem depressing? Or is it just realistic?
- What would Herrick say if you told him you were interpreting his poem as an excuse to party every night? (Carpe diem, right?)
- This poem was written in the 1600s. Does any of it seem outdated to you? If so, how would you update it for the 21st century?
