Writing about Love Love poems have always been very popular because love is one of the deepest emotions that people can feel and poetry is a good way to express such an emotion. When people think of love, they think of a typical romantic love but an exploration of pre-1914 love poetry shows other types of love such as unrequited love and obsessive love. The poems I will explore in depth are ‘To his Coy Mistress’ by Andrew Marvin, ‘The Garden of Love’ by William Blake, and ‘How do I love thee’ by Elizabeth Barrett-Browning. Blake’s poem ‘The Garden of Love’ is his view of being deceived by the perception of marriage. He has shown this by using the Chapel to symbolize marriage.
Rather than describe how the poets' loves have changes, both the poets quantify their love and show this sensation through descriptive writing and similes. As it can be seen from this analysis, much of the poetry written prior to the 19th Century was devoted to many types of love, both the sensations and feelings related to this subject, and also the poet attempting to capture in writing how the feeling of being in love has changed him or her both for better and for worse. In the case of the poets discussed here, it is obvious that for those poets, love was experienced as both a burden and an inspiration, as something to long for, and as something to resist. Regardless it is obvious that for these poets, love did serve to change them forever.
“To My Dear and Loving Husband” a poem by Anne Bradstreet has many possible themes, but two that just literally jumps off, the pages are true love and how to cope with a loved ones passing. These two may not be apparent themes at first, but as the reader is pulled deeper into the poem it
A poem is a piece of writing that partakes of the nature of both speech and song that is nearly always rhythmical, and usually metaphorical. More often than not poems are written about love. Authors talk deeply about love gone wrong, advice when in love, and the over powering feeling and emotions of being in love. Love is magical, when to people bond physically, mentally, and emotionally, giving all that you are to someone for them to appreciate and love all your flaws and imperfections, that’s beautiful. The poem A Valediciton: Forbidding Mourning written by John Donne is another mind blowing love poem.
In this short story Margaret Atwood shows the powerful effect that love has on people’s lives. At first glance, the short stories in "Happy Endings" have a common connection: all the characters die. After a more detailed examination of the stories, however, it becomes evident that each individual is striving to find love. Though love is a universal goal, each person's criteria for a meaningful, fulfilling and loving relationship varies. This is clearly demonstrated by the different situations in which the characters find themselves.
She uses language to portray beautiful imagery to try and express how she is feeling. This is a celebration of her love and her attitude is that love brings a person only joy. All the pre-twentieth poets lived different lives in different cultures and so there attitudes would have formed in different ways. However like most others they have all felt love in some way or experienced the jealousy and pain it can bring. Their love and loss poetry shows love in different forms, neither more true than the other but all just showing the different attitudes that people of different cultures have learnt or felt is true about love.
The poet uses comparison in order to express the quantity and quality of love their both process. “In my old griefs and with my childhood's faith” here this means that their love is unquestionable. For me all the songs were good but the one that I liked the most would of have to been the “Remember” by Christina Rossetti because of how the poet had written out the song, he is saying you have broken my heart and you can never enjoy my company any more and if you ever want to associate with me remember the times we had, and that if you were to remember me you should be sad of the loss.
The line "love is so short, forgetting is so long" is short, yet so powerful. The authors memories of his loved one will always be with him, and that's what makes forgetting so hard. He ends with "though this be the last pain she makes me suffer / and these the last verses that I write for her" to illustrate he is going to try to move on. Pablo Neruda's poem "Tonight I Can Write" has a incredible impact on the heart. After reading this poem, one could truly feel the pain he is trying to overcome.
He has tried so hard to show her that he has the attitude and love that will make her happy. The poet is basically saying that the persona is in love with this 'coy mistress' and he will try anything for her to fall in love with him. The poet talks about there being not enough time to think about the proposal but to take a risk and run with the feelin... ... middle of paper ... ... end of the poem by its intensity. Marvell is clearly in control - of himself and of the reader, Browning is at the mercy of her emotions. The Coy Mistress is undoubtedly an amazing poem and it seems like whatever you think or feel you can still agree with his way of thinking and his constructive way of using wit, amusement and passion shows how strong he felt about his mistress.
===================================================================== Shakespeare was also known for his plays and his sonnets are still among the world’s best-loved poems. =======... ... middle of paper ... ...mparing it to positive and personal things and also believing that your love will last forever even after death will signify the trust and love that two people shared. In addition I have learnt you can use persuasive devices to convince your partner to give into your desires and also the loss of a loved one or the disappointment of love when it isn’t returned can have a profound effect on a person’s well being mentally and physically, this was expressed through the emotional and dramatic Romantic poems. To summarise, I have learnt that love can lead to happiness, where there is trust, love and care between two people to the sexual stress, where you want your partner to give into the sexual side of love to the end or loss of love, where someone you love dearly dies or the person you love doesn’t feel the same way about you and your love isn’t returned.
