I'm doing a college poetry paper on Dorothy Parker and these individual

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.

woman gave importance to love...while less men gave importance to it...

I think that author is triyng to say that women are more committed to a
relationship than men do. That we women give everything we have for our
loved ones. She says too that men get tired of the woman they have and
that's why they have extramarital relationships. That's the way I see it.

Dorothy Parker obviously feels rebellious toward the men in her life. When
she wrote this poem, she was divorced from her husband. The poem clearly
states that men and women have different expectations in a marriage. But
she was not content to be an object of her man's physical desires. She
wanted emotional commitment from her man not macho ideals. We still want

In this poem Dorothy Parker is showing us her perspective about the
differences between women's and men's feelings in a relationships. We can't
deny that not every man is like she descibe them, but the MAYORITY is like
that: the "machos" that can't see the real beauty of a woman because
they're so occupated watching our external beauty, the one that dessapears
with the years.

What the author is saying is that while women are thinking of that special
someone to spend the rest of their lives with men are thinking how to spend
the rest of their lives playing around adding more women to their lists.
Women are more romantic while men are bored easily and don't like
