The Flower by George Herbert & Man by Henry Vaughan. Can anyone help me? I'm stuck..
There are three really big ones: The mention of God, most likely in the Christian sense, the blame of downfall on God: One says that God's frost and wrath withers him, the other says that God cursed Man from the beginning by ordering them into motion, and The Flower compares people to flowers, while Man contrasts them. There's more, but that should be a good kick in the right direction.
They both mention God the way Christians see him: first by calling him "God" and "Lord," and also with the idea that He planned everything, the way people live, and also they he causes the seasons, the frost. Second, The Flower says that the frost withers him, as in, it's his wrath, his anger, the things that God does that push him downward.
Thanks so much! Could you expand on the first one please? And what do you mean with "One says that God's frost and wrath withers him" ? Thanks though!
