At the round earth's imagined corners (Holy Sonnet 7)
by John Donne
At the round earth's imagined corners (Holy Sonnet 7) Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- What's the best way to ask for forgiveness? Is the poem a demonstration of a good way to ask for forgiveness?
- If the poem were a painting, what would it look like? Bonus points if you can figure out how to represent "imagined corners."
- Is it possible to be both arrogant and humble at the same time? If so, do you think that the speaker of this sonnet is both?
- Have you ever wanted to put off some kind of judgment of your behavior or work? (It doesn't have to be the Last Judgment.)
