                           Descriptive Type      [ Mark- 5 ]

1) Give the substance of the poem “The Sick Rose”.      / Or

Discuss the allegorical reference of the poem “The Sick Rose”.

Ans: ‘The Sick Rose’ is one of the most remarkable allegorical poem of William Blake. The poem focuses on the sickness of the rose with a hidden message.

                             The poet is deeply despaired to see the rose sickening. On a stormy night an invisible worm flies and creeps into the rose. It finds its home in the bosom of the rose. It is the nature of a worm to attack and destroy anything with its biting. Soon its fatal bite makes the flower bleed. The bed is filled with blood and worm is lost in joy. The rose knows not the danger it invites by sheltering the worm. It cannot free itself from the dark secret love of the worm. Hence the rose is now on the verge of destruction loosing all its purity and splendour. 

                                                          As a symbolic poem, it has a deeper meaning. The rose has always been a conventional symbol love. On the other hand the worm symbolizes death , decay and experience. Innocence sweetens life, love and beauty ennobles it. But innocence is destroyed by experience and beauty by jealousy. Thus the poet shows that ignorant man like the rose is tempted by experience. He falters and pains. Robbed off all fineness, man meets spiritual death.
