If you ask me, this is not a poem about love vs. materialism. It's about a
fling vs. a long and solid, committed relationship.

I`m realy from Puerto Rico but teh alternative dont appear in the country
selection :( its ok;)
Well I need to do a oral presentation about a poem and a chose "One perfect
rose" by Dorothy Parker. This poem has very verbal irony speccialy in the
third stanza. When I see the title of the poem I think that the poem is
about the love but, I was wrong about it. I started reading and I received
more than one teaching. Unfortunable in the actuality I can identify
couples that aren`t in love and are unit just for the money. That`s realey
bad!!! We need to analize if the love should be accompained with
materialism to be accepted or the love is more than that. For me the love
is more essential;)

I is unfortunate that a poem by Dorthy Parker would be kept from Public
viewing by anyone. I rather imagine that this is the last thing she
intended. Sad indeed.

I think that Dorothy Parker is a very gifted writer. When you can catch
anyone's interest and enlighten them on the realization of a subject it's
phenomenal. This woman is truly gifted and by no means sarcastic.
Sometimes love can be strange but that's all the more to pay attention.

this poem makes me think that people dont always stay with someone for love
but for material things and I dont understands why I am in love with my
boyfriend and cant imagine only being with him for money

I think Dorothy Parker is one of the greteast wits of the 20th
Century.Personally, I find One Perfect Rose a testament to the fragility of
love and in that I find both the rose and the limousine as a form of
symbolism. Although the rose is perfect and flawless, it withers and dies
whereas a limousine would be more valuable and longer lasting and its
giving would depict greater commitment(testament to the inconstant hearts
of men perhaps?!?!).

hi i am jimlim from thailand.i am a third year student. i am studying this
poem for my literature course at mahidol international university here with
MR Galon. i love this class so much. my comments towards this poem are
differently from what i have read above. i feel that the first part was
talking about how a guy feel before he gave a rose to his lady;deep
hearted, pure, with scented dew wet, all beautiful and romantic feelings.
the second one was talking about how the girl understand the language he
sent, right? but then , in the third one, it says something like the
feeling of dissapointing that why does her man sent her a limousine?
somebody may thinks that limousine is valuable stuffs which girls wish for,
but in my idea, i think that the girl must feel that oh YES!i understand
how you man feel when you give me the fragile leaves and your heart were
enclose with it ! awww.. so romantic! but well! just a rose, just feelings,
but why dont you man send me a limousine which means to propose me to marry
you?.(in western culture, to send a limousine may means to pick the bride
up and go to a wedding) the girl may want a commitment! it ensure her that
you really love her and want to be with her for the whole life. to give a
rose, a guy can give it to whome he likes but to marry someone is just only
one he LOVES! it means more thans just a rose! well... that's from what i
..if anyone of you got anything to discuss with me , then feel free to e
mail me!world peace!
be happy! smile:)firstname.lastname@example.org

I had to memorize this poem in 6th grade. Just recently we started a poetry
porject in school, and I was brought back to the days of reading Parker's
poems. I really love what she has written... they're all wonderful and
somewhat punctual, but can be misleading. One person's perspective is no
better than anothers. I highly recommend reading "Star Light, Star Bright"
also by Dorothy Parker. It's a simply put poem, but says so much.
