Edmund Spenser's 'the Faerie Queene', The Bower Of Bliss And The Garden Of Adonis

In Edmund Spenser's 'The Faerie Queene', Books 11 and 111 The Bower of Bliss and the Garden of Adonis might look similar from a distance; their geographical form is certainly similar, and the tour on which Spenser takes us seems to follow the same kind of route. But their ostensible similarity, and their juxtaposition in two adjacent books of 'The Faerie Queene' only serve to highlight their differences. The two gardens represent very different qualities of human life, and Spenser indicates the differences visually in his description of the gardens, verbally in the words he uses in these descriptions, and dramatically in the kinds of activity that take place in the gardens.

The first distinction to be made is between the proportion of Art to Nature that has gone into the construction of the gardens. The 'Bowre of Blisse' is introduced as:

'A place pickt out by choice of best alive,
That natures worke by art can imitate:' [11.X11.42]

Art itself is not condemned, but the use of art to stimulate wasteful unproductive lust. The artifice of the garden is admired for its skill, but condemned for being used to excess.

'And them amongst, some were of burnisht gold,
So made by art, to beautifie the rest,
. . . That the weake bowes, with so rich load opprest,
Did bow adowne, as over-burdened.' [11.X11.55]

The image of the vine bending under the weight of golden grapes illustrates how nature is distorted by artifice, just as human nature is distorted by entering the Bower of Bliss. Spenser's description of the golden ivy seems to anticipate Baroque sculpture and architecture in that it is more than an imitation of nature; it tries to supersede nature by exaggerating the most pleasing aspects. The result is an excess of sweetness to the point of sickliness. The stimulation of pleasurable sensations is almost pornographic, and Spenser ensures that we get the message by the use of the words 'lascivious' and 'wantones'.

'And over all, of purest gold was spred,
A trayle of yvie in his native hew:
For the rich mettall was so colored,
That wight, who did not well avis'd it view,
Would surely deeme it to be yvie trew:
Low his lascivious armes adown did creepe,
That themselves dipping in the silver dew,
Their fleecy flowres they tenderly did steepe,
Which drops of Christall seemed for wantones to weepe.' [11.X11.61]

A modern reader might not pick up the quality of excess implied in this description, but in fact Spenser takes pains to point out the excess. Art in the Bower of Bliss

'Was poured forth with plentifull dispence,
And made there to abound with lavish affluence.' [11.X11.42]

'Wherewith her mother Art, as halfe in scorne
Of niggard Nature, like a pompous bride
Did decke her, and too lavishly adorn' [11.X11.50]

The emphasis on excess is of course most relevant to the theme of Book 11: Temperance.

In contrast to the lavish glittering spectacle of the 'Bowre of Blisse', The 'Gardin of Adonis' comprises of natural goodness. 'It sited was in fruitfull soyle of old' [111.V1.31] and:

'In that same Gardin all the goodly flowres,
Wherewith dame Nature doth her beautifie,
And decks the girlonds of her paramoures,
Are fetcht:' [111.V1.30]

The arbour is 'of the trees owne inclination made' [111.V1.44]. This garden is free of artifice, and in emphasising its natural perfection Spenser likens it to Ovid's golden world:

'Ne needs there Gardiner to set, or sow,
To plant or prune: for of their owne accord
All things, as they created were, doe grow' [111.V1.34]

The quality of life represented by the Garden of Adonis is represented by 'Genius' who guards its gates. The Bower of Bliss was also guarded by a 'Genius', but not the real one. In keeping with another of Spenser's themes, appearance versus reality, the Genius of the Bower of Bliss is a fake

'That secretly doth us procure to fall,
Through guilefull semblaunts' [11.X11.48]

The Genius of the Garden of Adonis guards the gate through which old people enter and young babies leave, and the cycle of regeneration being represented has the same seemingly-paradoxical combination of transience and permanence as Spenser's Mutability Cantos [4]. The paradox is resolved by Platonism. While Time is the enemy of life in the garden:

'For all that lives, is subject to that law:
All things decay in time, and to their end to draw.' [111.V1.40]

It seems that the people, or perhaps just their souls, are recycled from old age to babyhood. And Adonis himself:

'All be he subject to mortalitie,
Yet is eterne in mutabilitie,
And by succession made perpetuall' [111.V1.47]

This is the same conclusion Spenser comes to at the end of the Mutability Cantos:

'I well consider all that ye have sayd,
And find that all things stedfastnes doe hate,
And changed be: yet being rightly wayd
They are not changed from their first estate;
But by their change their being doe dilate:
And turning to themselves at length againe,
Doe worke their owne perfection so by fate:' [V11.V11.58]

The garden is an allegory for the Platonic life-principle expounded in verses 36 to 38 of the Garden of Adonis where changeless 'things' or 'substance' borrow temporary physical form during life, decay, and are restored again.

In 'sublunary' terms this represents the fruitfulness of earthly life and the principle behind the 'mightie word . . . increase and multiply' [111.V1.34]. The Garden of Adonis is first and foremost, fruitful. The garden itself is a kind of storehouse for the various forms of life:

'. . . there is the first seminarie
Of all things, that are borne to live and die' [111.V1.30]

And its resident lovers, Cupid and Psyche, bear a child. Spenser approves of the pleasure indulged in in this garden, because it takes place between people who are enjoying natural healthy love:

'But now in steadfast love and happy state
She with him lives, and hath him borne a chyld' [111.V1.50]

In contrast, the pleasures to be had in the Bower of Bliss are thoroughly disapproved of. Even the word 'bliss' itself implies an extreme and transitory sensation compared to 'steadfast love and happy state' of the Garden of Adonis. The lovers of the Bower of Bliss are indulging in 'lewd loves, and wastfull luxuree' [11.X11.80]. They indulge in sex for its own sake, with no love, and no intention of procreation. This kind of activity, according to Spenser, saps the spirit and will-power of a knight, and causes him to lose interest in his true quest.

'Ne for them [his armour] ne for honour cared hee
Ne ought, that did to his advancement tend,
But in lewd loves, and wastfull luxuree,
His dayes, his goods, his bodie he did spend:
O horrible enchantment that him so did blend.' [11.X11.80]

The word 'enchantment' is important here; the queen of the garden is an enchantress with the power to turn men into pigs, and by implication a mind attracted by lust is a mind under a kind of spell. As with the golden ivy, it takes a man of insight and experience to see through the superficial attractions to the underlying depravity.

'That wight, who did not well avis'd it view,
Would surely deeme it to be yvie trew:' [11.X11.61]

Guyon himself becomes enchanted by the sight of the 'naked Damzelles' bathing. This long description [11.X11.63-68] is extremely attractive; it is designed to arouse feelings of lust in the reader or listeners. Spenser's 'warning words' such as 'greedy eyes', 'kindled lust' and the all-important 'seemed' [11.X11.64,68,65] are few and far between, but they are there, warning the reader of the danger Guyon is in. This is part of Guyon's education into temperance. The Palmer drags him away.

'He much rebukt those wandring eyes of his,
And counseld well, him forward thence did draw.' [11.X11.69]

But not all the pleasures to be had in the Bower of Bliss are tainted with artifice. The 'lovely lay' sung in verse 75 simply advocates enjoying life while it lasts:

'So passeth, in the passing of a day,
Of mortall life the leafe, the bud, the flowre,
Ne more doth flourish after first decay,
That earst was sought to decke both bed and bowre,
Of many a Ladie, and many a Paramowre:
Gather therefore the Rose, whilest yet is prime,
For soone comes age, that will her pride deflowre:
Gather the Rose of love, whilest yet is time' [11.X11.74]

World Leadership Group Evaluation (Where is WLG?)

It's not usual that I take the time to overview a failed MLM business alternative however let's face it, there's quite a bit to be learned from the lessons of failure as well as success, so let's review WLG to see simply what sunk this financial companies warship. Whatever happened to WLG..?

WLG was led by an experienced Web marketer by the label of Hubert Humphrey, now that's a name I just like the sound of. Hubert Humphrey has the consideration of founding a number of other monetary MLM companies before designing World Capital Management Group. This multilevel advertising alternative provided a variety of monetary products for its members. You were able to supply your customers financial support in the categories of brokerage management, real estate, mortgages, financial management advice and advertising and marketing solutions. A mouthful, but the query remains; was World Management Group a worldwide powerhouse or nothing greater than a big fish swimming in a small pond and just where did WLG go? Let's take a look...

After all that is an MLM (or was) so you'll be able to expect World Leadership Group promised their members and prospects alike a good return on their stake and the probabilities of early retirement. You might have had to use some of that retirement cash as an funding to get the ball rolling as a result of you might have waited awhile before seeing any return on your startup costs. What can I say? That is an business that takes time to repay some times and WLG was no different.

Your initial startup charge was one hundred seventy dollars which is not too unhealthy when you take a look at the possible return on your investment. It was a hundred and seventy dollars and could be missing for a while although for many who joined. There's usually a lot of paperwork that goes along with a majority of these services but that's something you will not have to worry about with WLG. All that was taken care of for you by Hubert Humphrey's other Web Marketing business endeavours.

Now that I discussed his other companies I may just let you know what they are. First now we have Global Equity Lending. This firm's space of expertise is in mortgages. It will allow your client to get the very most out of their mortgage investment. Second you may utilize Financial Leaders Advisers to start a money administration strategy to plan for solid retirement. Last however not least, Global Realty Advertising and marketing offers your purchasers extra of a chance to either promote their house or make it straightforward for them to purchase a new one.

As an affiliate of World Leadership Group you had the option of several compensation constructions; unfortunately as this firm has gone to the canines we've no method of looking at the element behind it to see if it could have made you healthy, rich and smart or pushed you even further into debt (my guess is the latter). World Management Group additionally requested for fees for his or her coaching courses to assist guide their associates in the proper motivation and recruiting techniques. Should you ask me this MLM was beginning to sound more like a full-fledged faculty course and I guess we'll by no means know if it had what it takes to coach you either.

If you desire to discover more about starting a business take a trip to this

World Leadership Group sank with out hint from what I can see a little less than six months again, leaving a good amount of debt and an excellent few pissed off entrepreneurs with no business mannequin within the financial providers sector. It is laborious to see where they went and why but all I can say is bon voyage and let's transfer on to the subsequent MLM business opportunity review.

An Overview Of Entrepreneurship

In the field of business, the people involved in the playoffs are called the entrepreneurs. They are also referred to as businessmen. They own and run their own businesses. In the strictest sense, the definition of what a real entrepreneur is varies.

The only certain thing is that, entrepreneurs are very much involved in today's American business arena. Tracing history back, it is said that the term entrepreneur has been conceivably recognized as an adamant part of the economic world only in the mid 1970s. The concept has then started to evolve with various meanings depending on the understanding of the society that gives meaning to it.

In an online dictionary as defined by the Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, in the year 1913, entrepreneur has been defined as the person who makes some products for his own benefit or account. This gives about the idea that the term has successfully evolved way back in the year 1913. Now such definition may quite be blurry.

How can a person be called an entrepreneur when he does nothing with that product aside form creating it? What term will be labeled to a person who takes other people's products and make a success out of them? Will they be not branded as entrepreneurs too? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, an entrepreneur is someone who organizes, who manages, and who assumes the risks posed by the business or enterprise world. Now this definition of an entrepreneur is richer in content compared with the first one. Risks-these are literally faced by entrepreneurs as they pursue with any type of investment in the market.

In a much formal definition of Ashoka, an entrepreneur goes to refer to an organizational society that promotes nothing but social change. Social entrepreneurs are those individuals who open up some new and major possibilities in the areas of health, education, environment, and all other areas of the human needs.

To drive a stricter point, the business entrepreneurs are those who lead the innovations in the world of commerce while the social entrepreneurs are those who drive social change in the society. In more ways than one, such definition all the more points out that those business entrepreneurs not only start with any type of business but they do promote change within the business range.

Dale Tucker, a personal entrepreneur, goes to define the term as an individual who decides to take hold and control of his own future and therefore become a self-employed person either by creating his own business or by working with a team just like what multi-level marketing means. On the other hand, Mark Hendricks suggests that for one person to be called an entrepreneur, he needs to be particularly daring. He must be able to meet the challenge of either winning or losing in the business. He therefore must be open to the possibilities of the results of the competition.

So how can an entrepreneur be tailored to be one? What business skills are required in order to become an entrepreneur? There are pointers that must be looked into before someone may divulge into any business venture. The following are some of the qualifications to look into:

Planning and organization. These include the setting up and the attainment of specific goals, qualification to enter into a commitment, and then being able to keep up with work schedules.

The capacity to handle money. Budget must be carefully determined, loans must be secured, funds must be raised, and all of the finances must be recorded. For all these things, an entrepreneur must be an expert.

The selling of products and ideas. An entrepreneur should be acquainted with the proper way of selling. In the world of business, the products whether they take the form of materials or ideas need to sell out in order to gain profit.

Management. Anyone who does not have the management skills is not fit to be an entrepreneur.

The ability to work with people. A good rapport is always needed in an entrepreneur. If he is unable to influence people then he will not likely succeed.

The ability to be a risk-taker. In the world of business, wins are not always secured. There are only two possibilities: winning and losing. Whichever phase confronts him, a good entrepreneur knows how to handle it.
