Quote #1

A narrow Fellow in the Grass (1)

It’s never clear who or what this fellow actually is about, and he remains a mysterious, hidden, and potentially evil figure like the “Fellow” that we meet in line 21.

Quote #2

When a Boy and Barefoot (11)

Barefoot is a form of nakedness (no word on whether the speaker was wearing a fig leaf) that is associated with freedom and innocence, as opposed to shame and fear.

Quote #3

Several of Nature’s People (17)

In Western culture, who is more representative of “Nature’s People” than Adam and Eve? These two were the closest to nature, likely, that humanity will ever be.
