The majority of romantic poems are written from a male’s perspective and this poem, “The Man”, shows the female’s point of view. She talks about a man that she loves, describing his traits as someone ‘misunderstood by others’ but ‘inexorably charming’. She assumes that he is also an outsider, someone alienated from society, hence her glorifying him. Through the description of his physical attributes, the lady concludes that this man is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, referring to him as a shooting star, which comes not so often.
