Question and answer
Q: To eva poem what do the watchful sentinels refeer to
A: Tropes present in the poem are simple adjective-noun descriptions (blameless gaze, divine sympathy), but there is a subdued metaphor also (eyes likened to candles and to sentinels); hyperbole, as in the first three lines; oxymoron, [ (eyes that charm/forbid, fire that draws/repels), and the conceit (the subdued metaphor is extended by the oxymorons). This conceit is in the English Metaphysical
tradition of the 17th century, but it is by no means an original image. Read more at ]
