How perfectly her life was framed; And, thought of in that passionate mood, How her affecting graces shamed The vulgar life that was but good! Many changes caused this shift in Victorian society, but one of the most important and controversial was the increasing prominence of women in the public sphere, and the changing dynamics of male-female relationships. Once, through yonder gate, I saw her go, and knew from far Her love-lit form and gentle state. She sacrificed daily. It reads like a parody of a bad Victorian love poem, but alas, it's the real deal.

On wings of love uplifted free, And by her gentleness made great, I'll teach how noble man should be To match with such a lovely mate; And then in her may move the more The woman's wish to be desired, By praise increasedtill both shall soar, With blissful emulations fired. The poem describes his struggle to overcome these feelings and to concentrate all his love on his wife, who also expresses her own doubts in letters to her mother. Patmore's shilly-shallying suggests that for him less is not more, or not more for long. Her dress had brush'd this wicket; here She turn'd her face, and laugh'd, with light Like moonbeams on a wavering mere. And of course, knowingly or not, passive-aggressive.

The clock was striking in the hall, And one sad window open yet, Although the dews began to fall. Or, giddy with her beauty's praise, She'd scorn our simple country life, Its wholesome nights and tranquil days, And would not deign to be my Wife. I stood by Honor and the Dean, They seated in the London train. Women were educated but were not skilled to be beneficial outside in the world. The last two installments were written with the point of view of the rejected suitor who marries another woman. And has it dawn'd on thy dull wits That love warms many as soft a nest, That, though swathed round with benefits, Thou art not singularly blest?

I hoped she'd lose it; for my love Was grown so dainty, high, and nice, It prized no luxury above The sense of fruitless sacrifice.

Or, giddy with her beauty's praise, She'd scorn our simple country life, Its wholesome nights and tranquil days. But when I look on her and hope To tell with joy what I admire, My thoughts lie cramp'd in narrow scope, Or in the feeble birth expire; No mystery of well-woven speech, No simplest phrase of tenderest fall, No liken'd excellence can reach Her, the most excellent of all, The best half of creation's best, Its heart to feel, its eye to see, The crown and complex of the rest, Its aim and its epitome.

How oft, as fearful she might hear, Whispering that name of 'Wife,' I heard The chiming of the inmost sphere.
