In ‘to His Coy Mistress’ the speaker, a man is trying to persuade a very reluctant female to have a sexual Relationship. He is hoping that eventually she will agree because the man dominates the speaking , we don’t really know what the woman’s reaction is to his request. The man uses different persuasive techniques to get the woman to sleep with him. The relationship seems to be dominated by the man because he does all the talking.
In ‘the beggar woman’ again the man is looking for a sexual encounter but because the narrator seems to be omniscient; we know what both the Gentleman and the beggar woman are feeling and we do find out what the outcome is. At the beginning of the poem the Gentleman seems to have the upper-hand, His status in society is higher than that of the beggar woman, He is physically ‘higher’ than her because he is mounted on his horse and she ‘trots behind’ which makes her seem very animalistic.

Times winged chariot hurrying back.’ The word But...
