Brandell Reed April 4, 2011 British Literature Essay #3, Topic 1 Response to Marvell, “To Coy His Mistress” Dear Andrew, After reading “To His Coy Mistress”, I have found the poem very disrespectful. How could you rush becoming intimate with me? It seems as if you may not know, but I am not a hussy! I’m a woman who deserves to be treated with respect. How dare you try and bribe me with explorations and gifts. You explained, “To walk, and pass over long love’s day. Thou by the Indian Ganges’ side shouldst rubies find: I by the tide” (4-6). I want you to understand I do not need any trips around the world, rubies, and time with you. As you can tell from this letter, I am upset with you. I found out you are not the same gentleman I encountered a week ago. Honestly at one point, I wanted to become more acquainted with you. I never noticed how spiritual you seemed to be. Your words from the poem were, “I would love you ten years before the flood: and you should if you please refuse till the conversion of the Jews” (8-10).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
