    Audience and Expectation in John Clare’s An Invite to Eternity Although John Clare’s “An Invite to Eternity” appears to be a direct address to an unknown and anonymous “maiden,” in reality the poem is a much more complex appeal to the reader, which takes on the guise of traditional love poetry only to subvert it. In many ways, Clare’s poem seems to emulate and echo more classical poems such as Marlowe’s “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” in its direct entreaty to a young lover. However, unlike

It puts a mirror in front of the world and presents an angle of an image that, though familiar, we have never seen or

    Lost for eternity I suddenly awoke to a loud bell followed by the thumping of 22 feet on hardwood. Instinctivly, I tried to leap to my feet, but fell down again. Then I remembered where I was.
