Module 4 - Reading Assignment 4

The Passionate Shephard to His Love and The Nymph's Reply to the Shephard are both significant pieces of literature because they are both pastoral pieces of literature that show two viewpoints. Christopher Marlow's piece ignores the realities of the complexity of life, which is the defining characteristic of pastoral literature. Sir Walter Raleigh's piece shows the opposite of love, in that more of a reality based world. Readers can view both sides of rushing into love with these two poems.
