This poem relates back to greek mythology. He doesnt kill his lover and he
doesnt die, it is from a point of view of another. It relates back to
Diana or Artemis, goddess and protectress of wildlife, is challenged by the
hunter Actaeon. She turns her love Actaeon in to a stag or deer. His own
hounds end up killing him. This is Cummings interpretation and retelling of
this event. He conveys a beautiful theme and yet such a sad and over

this poem remind me of an old irish song about Molly Bawn. Her love
accidently shoots her because she looks like a swan while he is out
hunting. In this poem it seems his love went out for a ride in the woods
and was killed by a hunter as well, though not the narrator himself.
