“A Dialogue Between the Soul and Body” by Andrew Marvell, from Miscellaneous Poems (1681) Soul O who shall, from this dungeon, raise A Soul enslaved so many way? With bolts of bones, that fettered stands In feet; and manacled in hands; Here blinded with an eye; and there Deaf with the drumming of an ear. A Soul hung up, as ’twere, in chains Of nerves, and arteries, and veins. Tortured, besides each other part, In a vain head, and double heart.
