Hero And Leander - Poem by Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is over-rul'd by fate.
hen two are stript long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should lose, the other win;
And one especially do we affect
Of two gold ingots, like in each respect:
The reason no man knows; let it suffice,
What we behold is censur'd by our eyes.
Where both deliberate, the love is slight:
Who ever lov'd, that lov'd not at first sight.

    This poem reminds me of war, and I personally feel offended. Look inbetween the lines, people! It's all about a male-dominated society! LINE 1 states, it is not in our power to love and hate, showing that females are the ones that love and males are the ones that hate.

    MARLOWE pushes the boundary by doing this in the WRONG WAY! ! @! !

    Living in a male-dominated society is WRONG, and MARLOWE IS WRONG, WRONG, WRONG by writing this poem. The 19th amendemtn let women vote, therefore this poem is invalid in every way.
