The Passionate Shepherd to His Love

The Passionate Shepherd to His Love

by Christopher Marlowe

Man and the Natural World Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

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 (15-18)

The pastoral mode shifts up a gear when the speaker not only perfects what's readily found in nature but starts promising things from nature that it cannot deliver, like gold buckles, coral clasps, and amber studs.
