I'm doing a college poetry paper on Dorothy Parker and these individual
traslations came as a really big help. I just wanted to say thank you very
much (:

from this womans perspective when you love it is everything, it speaks
bitterness to me of love unrequited with the same depth and passion. speaks
of physical and emotional act of love and how who you love can never give
you what you need/want

D.Parker at this time was Divorced. She had extra martial affairs herself.
So I wonder if this poem was about her or her husband. If you know her
work as I am sure a lot of you do. She always looked at love a an
disconcerning issue. So maybe this is just an internal interpertation of
love. No matter what she did she could not make the man in her life happy.
Because deep down she could not make herself happy.

i love this poem!i always find that women are always quick to fall in love
and men are always quick to fall into lust. I think dorothy patker does an
excellent job portraying this concept in this poem.

well, for me the poem dorothy Parker wrote is that, it tells about how
woman gave importance to love...while less men gave importance to it...
hmmm.. women are martyrs....
