    Delight in Disorder Analysis Delight in Disorder Analysis Presentation Transcript

    • By: Robert Herrick A sweet disorder in the dress Kindles in clothes a wantonness A lawn about the shoulders thrown Into a fine distraction; An erring lace, which here and there Enthralls the crimson stomacher; A cuff neglected, and thereby Ribbons to flow confusedly; A winning wave, deserving note, In the tempestuous petticoat; A careless shoestring, in whose tie I see a wild civility; Do more bewitch me than when art Is too precise in every part.
    • Narrator comments on the clothing of a woman. He highlights the particular garments, noting their imperfections, yet still admiring the pieces and the woman herself. At the end of the poem, the narrator reveals that he prefers these imperfections over a “precise art” What does the poem mean?
