    I attended a literary workshop on feminist and gender theory held in my university today and we were asked to analyse 'The Sick Rose' during the seminar. I surprised myself by coming up with a queer reading of the poem! It was fun!

    I love William Blake's poetry.A short and meaningful poem.This poem is about a relationship that has changed. The rose in literature symbolizes love, whereas relationships often give way to problems. The worm that is secretly eating the rose symbolizes the problems that a relationship develops. But, like the rose, the relationship dies and the lover is left without the person that he loves.

    I love this poem and its illustration. This poem is rich with very many different meanings.

    O Rose, thou art sick!The invisible worm,That flies in the night,In the howling storm,Has found out thy bedOf crimson joy;And his dark secret loveDoes thy life destroy.
