Analysis and comments on Eros by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Comment 5 of 5, added on July 30th, 2013 at 7:07 AM.
Cleverness or accident?

Struck immediately by the use of the letters e-r-o-s in every line except
the third where love appears twice. Pain seems to be taken to get the
letters of his own entire name into the short poem(Emerson is Men eros
anagram). However I am not sure there is otherwise anything significant or
particularly rigorous in this exercise but it does explain the forced
strangeness of the cute economy.

I found this poem very economical...but quite banal. Tranquil in a
way...very touching and somewhat...transative. You are an exquisite author
of your soul. You are my hero. I LOVE YOU

this poem is describing how although, short and seemingly simple, love is
thrown and miss used by men and gods as well. this poem is basically Eros,
the god of love, teaching of his excistence and purpose.

wqay it was written.
