Pastoral Poetry~~A Study in Contrasts: The Passionate Shepherd to His Love- Marlowe & The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd – Raleigh

I’m trying to study for my English course and I need some help to understand this question.


Shepherd or Nymph?

Discuss the differences between the two perspectives on love presented in The Passionate Shepherd to His Love and The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd.~~~See attached PDF

What pastoral elements does Marlowe use to create an idealized picture of rural life and his romantic fantasy? How does the poem characterize the speaker and what message does his poem convey to his beloved and the audience at large?

In his response poem, discuss how Raleigh’s use of imagery reflects a seasonal change. What contrasting ideas are conveyed through these images? How is this speaker’s attitude different from the shepherd?
