Hello, I am studying this poem, but I am confused at interpretation.
the first line in forth stanza,
"The angels, not half so happy in Heaven, went envying her and me."
I thought the anger was very happy, but interpretation in Korean says "The angel was not happy so that the angel envied them"
but the phrase "not half" means "very" isn't it?
how do I understand it? Please helpT^T
Then, in this poem, 'not half' doesn't mean 'very'!
just not ! half! right?
In the sense of 'less than half', yes.
