The Chilling and Killing of Annabel Lee Love is generally thought of as a sweet or passionate idea. However, when a love dies, it can take on a much more menacing and terrifying aura. In “Annabel Lee,” by Edgar Allen Poe, we discover that when a perfect love perishes, the results can be absolutely terrifying. When the narrator loses his ideal love, he is unable to move on and resorts to cursing the heavens and even sleeping with his dead love. Poe is able to express this dark side of love that the narrator experiences through structure, symbols, setting, and imagery.
Now he describes the "line of spray... / Where the sea meets" the land as "moon-blanched." And the tide, tossing pebbles as it comes, is a "grating roar" with a "tremulous cadence slow" that "bring[s] / The eternal note of sadness in." This melancholy mood grows deeper as he thinks of man's long span of history-- "The turbid ebb and flow / of human misery." In the next stanza beginning with line twenty-one, Arnold gets to the reason ... ... middle of paper ... ... in a sky that is brown, not completely black because God's Spirit is hovering in love over the dark world still, like a mother dove brooding over her nest. Obviously, both poets recognize the darkness in the world; and both see love as a light in the darkness.
Irony, Images, and Illusions in Dover Beach In the poem "Dover Beach" by Matthew Arnold there is a lot of irony, appeal to the auditory and visual sense, and illusions. The tone in this poem is very sad and dismal, but he shows us how to keep faith and hope in spite of that and how important being honest, true, and faithful to one another, really is. Throughout this poem, Arnold mentions all of these traits and ties them all together. The irony in this poem is the main plot of the poem. A man has taken a woman to a beautiful beach in France.
Protest riots take place in Rome and Turin and there are intimations that the war is becoming a stalemate, the army disillusioned; ”there was a great contrast between his world pessimism and personal cheeriness” (127), the prospects of victory evaporating; ”the war could not be much worse” (129). In Book III Henry says (175): ”I was always embarrassed by the words sacred, glorious, sacrifice and the expres... ... middle of paper ... ...aught you off base they killed you” (314). Henry sees clearly the tight connection between love and war, as shown when he compares the dying of his beloved with the dying of his combat friends: ”Or they killed you gratuitously like Aymo. Or gave you the syphilis like Rinaldi. But they killed you in the end.

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.
The central theme of his poetry is his own intense personal dispositions, as a lover, a friend, a psychoanalyst of his own experiences, worldly and religious. Classical poetry cannot unify these experiences; it is John Donne’s use of the metaphysical that allows him to present his poetry as a whole experience, and to show feelings as they are. This technique proves him not only successful in teaching and delighting audience, but achieving both so effectively that they have the ability to affect readers deeply.
He states to his deceitful mother and uncle, "But I have that within which passes show These but the trappings and the suit of woe" (I, II, 85-86). Hamlet tries to articulate that his grief for his father's death and the prospect of his mother's unfaithfulness is almost inexpressible. He is left alone to bear the burden of suspicion toward the people he once loved. To a man bereft of a sense of purpose there is no possibility of action because it wouldn't have any meaning. No act but suicide seems rational.Yet Hamlet seeks to escape his life of woe when he is commanded by his father's spirit to a great act--revenge.
There is no question that life presents many disagreeable scenarios. Be it the loss of a friend, a failure to succeed, a dishonor upon the family, the need to escape from despair into bliss is often a sought after means to terminate suffering. In his celebrated and remarkable work "Ode to a Nightingale", John Keats portrays a narrator dissatisfied with his lot in life who seeks to end his suffering. Written to a singing bird in the trees, Keats's poem explores a variety of methods for a man to escape from a life with which he is vehemently discontented. After a catalogue of metaphors during which Keats’s narrator fails escape through each, the miserable man comes to the conclusion that escape from his life is impossible, and transcendence is a horizon reached only by the song of birds.
The Imaginary is ¡§the part of the psyche that contains our wishes, fantasies, and, most importantly, images¡¨ (Bressler 156). Lacan¡¦s major focus is in his theory that our psyche is lack and fragmentation. ¡§We have longings for love, for physical pleasure¡Kbut nothing can fulfill our desire to return to the Imaginary Order and be at one with our mother¡¨ (Bressler 158). Many of the poems in The Red Leaves of Night withhold the sense that St. John is yearning for something and is never complete. For example, in his poem ¡§The Unsayable, the Unknowable & You¡¨ St. John presents a situation where he is completely captivated by a woman and lusts for more activity with her.
The speaker feels connected to Sophocles in that he, too, heard the "eternal note of sadness" on the Aegean (a sea on the east side of Greece).

It becomes more ordered towards the end, because the speaker's love can counteract the chaos of the world. The various moods of "Dover Beach" reflect the many feelings and struggles that life holds for us all. This is one individual's experience, but it is still true to all of us, because each of us have felt disillusioned and betrayed by the world at one time or another.
