This poem has many interpretations, from dissent against Bloody Mary’s reign, to Mary Queen of Scots and the Virgin Mary. I liked the contrast of an overgrown garden to a world of chaos and protest, similar to the situation today. I made some visual tests contrasting medieval torture weapons used for protesters and images of overgrown plants.
However, I got quite bored with the history of poem. I therefore wasn’t clear on what I was trying to communicate about the poem, as all my images were quite vague drawings of general gardens. I would like to find a new poem.
