Writers will analyze the language of influence, seduction and salesmanship used by Marlowe in "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love" as well as the logical response crafted by Raleigh in "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd." Finally, students will brainstorm other scenarios where influence and salesmanship are used and write their own poems of seduction and denial. This lesson focuses on idea development and word choice.
