Plath shows through her repetition that death has a lasting impact on those left behind. Her yearning and despise for her father is felt through pain in the vivid imagery. This loss is transported to other relationships “I made a model of you, a man in black... ... middle of paper ... ...r towards something more sinister. Here the woman is given the status of wife by society but is unable to exercise it within herself, rendering her without a personal identity. Through their poems Plath and Frost have given the reader an insight into the feelings of loss.
Comparing How do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning and A Brithday by Christina Rosetti Much of the poetry written prior to the 19th Century was devoted to the 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. For these reasons, it is important top analyse examples of this poetry in terms of how the different poets have captured the sensations of being in different types of love. Also, how the poets have conveyed to the reader the different types of love one can experience. Finally, how the poets convey to the reader a sense of how being in love has changed them, for the better, or for worse. The two poems I have chosen to compare for this essay are 'How do I love thee?'
Her reactions began to grow cold, she was fading away from the relationship. The first part of the poem describe the author and the woman 's attitude when they saw each other at the moment of their separation, which Byron finds unbearable. He sees her immediate response and his own emotional reaction at the time as a what their future will be like, which is nothing. They will no longer have any more relations. Next, Byron emphasizes the way he feels even now that time has past without the women he loves.
The selective poems also use metaphors and similes to juxtapose the positive and negative connotations and use structures and rhyming schemes to compare the past and the present to emphasize on the theme of attachment. In closing, a sense of loss can be felt after a long period apart if one has an emotional attachment to a specific person or an attachment to an object. This compels us to appreciate them as they are and educate ourselves to treasure our love towards them; therefore I believe the emotional attachments to different times and people is a very important of study.
Another poem with a negative tone is ‘Villegiature’ by Edith Nesbit who was writing after Blake. This poem is not about the restrictions of marriage but about a possible romance that has fallen apart. Blake’s poem seems... ... middle of paper ... ...at if they stay together their love will never die. In Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s ‘How Do I Love Thee?’ there is also use of hyperbole. For example in the last line she says ‘I shall but love thee better after death’ Barrett Browning uses the hyperbole to show romantic love.
I found this barren world, this wilderness of possibilities to be an imprint ... ... middle of paper ... ... depression experienced made him so frustrated with life for example he said, “Those of you around me are fool to ask, Ghalib, why are you still living? It’s my destiny to continue o wish for death for few more days.”Hence, the tremendous amount of pain he faced after the death of his sons gave his poetry an ultimate depth and provided an image of love and affection for the reader. Ghalib’s infused the new idea of love in his poetry .The different concept of closeness and frankness of the relationships in his poetry to show his love was distinctive. Along with that, he also portrayed the sorrow he faced in his life, and used it as techniques to beautify his poetry. This image of passionate love along with the intense sadness was unique combination of affection.
This would seem extremely odd at that period of as women were treated as subservient and marriage contracts would be made with men's interests at heart. The idea of men treating women as inferior is opposed in the first stanza. This stanza details the rejection of male dominance by a woman. Men are described as, 'conqueror,' to women who are, 'bond slaves.' The vocabulary in this stanza highlights the strong feelings of the women and of her hate for her role in society.
In the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, love plays a huge role in the actions and consciences of many of the characters. Although the play is a comedy, it gives incite of Shakespeare’s view of women how they were treated during his time. Women usually had to marry men who they didn’t love and it was inevitable that women were to become solely dependent on men. Similar to many writers, Shakespeare expressed his opinions on sensitive subjects through his works. Shakespeare’s portrayal of women at his time were that they could allow themselves to be rebellious and vulnerable only when influenced by love.
The poem suggests that she had either an unhealthy relationship with him or she was angry with him for leaving her. In the poem, Plath says “I have always been scared of you” (41); I view this as she may not have had the best relationship with him. Maybe he was abusive or mean. Maybe he was cold-hearted. But the truth is, for some reason, she was upset about her father’s death.
These four poets deal with the theme of love in their poems and each of them convey the messages a unique and interesting way. Lord Byron?s poem is gloomy and sad; however, Rossetti and Wordsworth balance out their poems by mentioning the good times and the bad. Although these poems were all written during the Victorian era, their themes are universal and timeless because as long as there is love, loss will accompany it.
