Question and answer
Read the stanza from John Donne's "The Flea." MARK but this flea, and mark in this, How little that which thou deniest me is; It suck'd me first, and now sucks thee, And in this flea our two bloods mingled be. Thou know'st that this cannot be said A sin, nor shame, nor loss of maidenhead; Yet this enjoys before it woo, And pamper'd swells with one blood made of two; And this, alas ! is more than we would do. How does the flea function in this poem?
In John Donne's "The Flea", the flea functions as: a metaphor for the relationship between the speaker and the woman to whom he addresses the poem.
