Question and answer
In On My First Son, the speaker reveals to the reader a lesson he has learned from the loss of his son. What twist in meaning exists in the following line: What he loves may never like too much (line 12)?
as i read the poem "On m first Son"by Ben Johnson, my interpretation in this is that, he really misses his son, for his child at early age.. [ and the 12th line, he was trying to say, for me, that everything thing that his son wanted to do, eat, read, watch, listen to, draw or everything that his son's habits shall be avoided to be remembered but he cannot do it because he love his son too
much,it was hard for him to recover from his son's death... On My First Son by Ben Jonson Farewell, thou child of my right hand, and joy; My sin was too much hope of thee, lov'd boy. Seven years thou'wert lent to me, and I thee pay, Exacted by thy fate, on the just day. O, could I lose all father now! For why Will man lament the state he should envy? To have so soon 'scap'd world's and flesh's rage, And, if no other misery, yet age? Rest in soft peace, and, ask'd, say here doth lie Ben Jonson his best piece of poetry. For whose sake, henceforth, all his vows be such, As what he loves may never like too much. ]
