Read the following poem carefully before you choose your answers.
Called to that audit by advised respects—
And this my hand against myself uprear,
To leave poor me thou has the strength of laws,
Select an Answer
One theme of the poem appears to be that
unrequited love is still sweet
time transforms lust into love
the value of true love cannot be calculated
relationships should be controlled by laws
reason is insufficient to explain love
Choice E is correct. The speaker refers to "reasons" (line 8), "lawful reasons" (line 12), and "laws" (line 13) that seemingly support behavior with rational motives. In line 14, however, the speaker suggests two related ideas: that reason cannot explain why he is loved and that, since he clearly is loved, reason lacks an adequate way to explain the behavior of lovers.
