Memory and the Past Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

Wind oozing thin through the thorn from norward,
And the woman calling. (15-16)

But just when we think that the woman is gone, here she is, "calling" once again. It's like she's constantly demanding that the speaker recognize her. That he keep her alive, if only in his memory. Or, you know, she's totally a ghost and literally haunting him. Your pick.
