    An Explication of The Garden of Love My original interpretation of "The Garden of Love" encompassed the speaker as a person who was scared to move on in their life and in love. I thought (he) was afraid of failure, afraid of losing childhood innocence in the wake of adulthood decisions and expectations.

Moreover, in both environments, flesh is the one uncontrollable factor that ultimately leads to death. However, in Acrasia’s garden, her intemperance (excess, covetousness, greed, envy, and narcissism) catalyze the destruction of the flesh.
