(Themes of Women's rights. Poem could be a metaphor for the suffering of women in this time period, a negative connotation on men and society. Collequial language on the man could be used to show a microcosm of how men are dumb and gives him an overall negative image. The title of the poem shows how she might not have consumated the relationship as she isn't his Wife and also it is possesive to the man. Mental illness imagery is conveyed throughout the poem and is in relation to the poet. Nature themes are also to convey how the Farmer is constantly taking and the Bride is one with the animals. The structure of the poem reflects imbalance (maybe between men and women or sanity and insanity, this is due to the varied stanza lengths.)Chronologically, Charlotte Mew is writing after Byron, Shelley and the Brownings, even Thomas Hardy, although she was a contemporary of his by the time Neutral Tones was published. Her poem still has some of the features of more traditional poetry, but her style is certainly much more idiosyncratic and personal than others in the collection – if not because of the content rather than the time that the poem was written and published.
