Different Aspects of Love in Poetry
WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF LOVE FROM POETRY SPANNING
A PERIOD OF SEVEREAL HUNDRED YEARS?
We have studied the greatest love poems ever written by men and women.
These poets have used poems to emphasise their feelings and
experiences of love and relationship.
From these love poems written by famous poets, we find out that love
is a complex subject matter and different poets intend to illustrate
the aspects of love in their poems.
These aspects are categorised into three different sections: firstly
we see the joy of love; secondly the sexual desires of love and
finally the pain of love.
All of these aspects of love come from different periods of time. This
era includes: William Shakespeare-16th Century; Donne and Marvell-17th
Century; Byron, Wordsworth and Clare-19th Century: time of the
romantic poets, Barrett Browning and Rossetti-late 19th Century: time
of the Victorian poets.
The following essay will express how these poets deal with the aspects
of love and what we learn about different aspects of love from poetry
spanning a period of several hundred years.
“Sonnet 18”, written by William Shakespeare (1564-1616). He was an
English playwright and a poet, recognised in much of the world as the
greatest of all dramatists. Scholars have written thousands of books
and articles about his plots, characters, themes and language. He is
the most widely quoted author in history, and his plays have probably
been performed more times than those of any other dramatist.
Shakespeare was also known for his plays and his sonnets are still
among the world’s best-loved poems.

...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
Each of Ovid’s Amores presents a slightly different view of love. Many of his poems have links between them, for example 3.4 and 2.19 (which both involve a custos and puella), but they also differ hugely (3.4 and 2.19 present almost opposing arguments). This leads to the conclusion that perhaps Ovid is highlighting how love changes according to the situation.
Attitudes Towards Love in Pre-1900 and 1990's Poetry “The Despairing Lover” written by William Walsh was written pre 1900 whilst the second poem “I Wouldn’t Thank you for a Valentine” by Liz Lockhead was written in the 1990’s. These poems are almost a century apart. Attitude towards love changes over time and these poems represent this. I Wouldn’t Thank you for a Valentine is about how people think about Valentine’s Day in the 1990’s, while The Despairing Lover is showing what people think and how important they see love in the 1990’s.
The Range of Feelings Associated with Love in Catullus and Lesbia' Poems Of Catullus’s poems, the Lesbia poems are the most memorable, particularly as they contain such a wide range of feelings and emotions. Whilst we do not know what order the poems were written in, it is tempting to arrange them in a progression from constant love, to confusion and despair and finally hatred. Poem 87 appears to be at the beginning of the relationship between Catullus and Lesbia. The symmetry of the couplets beginning “nulla” and ending with “mea est” emphasizes the idea that no one loves Lesbia as much as Catullus. The placement of “nulla” at the beginning of the

After watching the movie “It’s Complicated” many of John Alan Lee’s Six types of love were recognized. Jake and Jane was one couple that I noticed who displayed Lee’s love types. One type that they displayed was Ludus: flirtatious and fun. Jane and Jake seemed very playful, flirtatious, carefree, and casual, which according to our text describes this love style very well. This couple was more carefree at first but as the movie continued on they seemed to put more thought into what they were doing. These two also displayed the Ludus style by having fun and by being easy-going with their situation.
