To His Coy Mistress

Publication Date: August 4, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century

I love this poem, and honestly, there's a reason it's so famous. It's just really clever. My favorite part, as the comic suggests, is when the poet is all, "C'mon, if you don't let me bang you now, your virginity will be worm food!" Classy, Marvell. Classy.

Author: Andrew Marvell • Year: 1681 • Info: Luminarium
