In "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love" and "The Bait" the reader locates two contrasting images of the world. Marlowe paints the earth as a utopian population withought any concerns or risks. The shepherd and the enthusiast he's seeking in his pursuit have no obligations in life other than to enjoy life to it fullest extent. In describing the pleasures that your few can enjoy in the countryside, Marlowe does not include the manner in which the shepherd obtains those pleasures and omits the negative possibilities which may go along with them. The shepherd explains to the female that they can "sit upon the rocks/And see the shepherds nourish their flocks" (5/6), but he will not mention the duties associated with buying flocks of sheep and protecting them from risk.
