In her poems, she writes about love based on her relationship with her husband – a relationship shared by a pure, passionate love. Browning centers her life and happiness around her husband and her love for him. This life and pure happiness is dependent on their love, and she expresses this outpouring and reliance of her love through her poetry. She uses imaginative literary devices to strengthen her argument for the necessity of love in one’s life. The necessity of love is a major theme in Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “Sonnet 43” and “Sonnet 29.” Browning’s “Sonnet 43” vividly depicts the human dependency of love.
I fancy the John Green quote, “I fell in love the way you fall asleep; slowly, then all at once.” I consider this quote to be one of the best ways to explain love. In conclusion, no matter what shape or form, love will always have an affect on my life. All in all, the story of Romeo and Juliet will continue to be an important part of culture and literature forevermore. The themes help define and understand feelings and what it means to be human. Love in Romeo and Juliet makes the reader think about the worth of love, all the styles of love there are, and the idea of true love.
This shows in this quote, ” Yet hope I well, that when this storme is past My Helice the lodestar of my lyfe Will shine again, and look on me at last,”(476). In those lines, the narrator hopes the storm between him and his lover will... ... middle of paper ... ... uses him and his feelings to become dominant over him. However, “Amoretti” contrasts by speaking of love in a positive and joyful way. Neither way completely defines a love relationship. It’s good that interpretations of love were diverse like these two sonnets, because there are all types of relationships when it comes to love.
There are many different ways to show someone that you love them. Whether it be in the simplest of words or actions or with the more emotional aspect of your true self, it all falls under the key to happiness, love. The poems , “To His Coy Mistress,” by Andrew Marvell, and , “ A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning,” by John Donne, both express love as being the strength that over sees all your lover’s flaws and that in which we find ourselves in the process. Even though they have similarities between each other they also have their differences in style. One has a positive outlook that is more to the point and the other really gets you scratching your head, pondering on the text, time and time again.
A flame of passion is contained within the heart, yet is love contained in a mere flame of passion? This timeless saying embodies the ultimate declaration of love written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. “How Do I Love Thee? Let me Count the Ways” is a poem bathed in rhyme and inundated in sentimental avowals. This sonnet shows the perpetual love that Browning shares with her husband and how that love can never be destroyed by any power of human or spiritual nature (Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s: Sonnet 45).
The word choices used by Anne Bradstreet in “To My Dear and Loving Husband” to bring the reader to assume that the poem is about true love are mostly her use of love and the way she describes how the wife loves her husband and his love for her. “If ever man were loved by wife, then thee” you are brought under the assumption that the wife is madly in love with her husband and she does not think that another could love their husbands just as much (Bradstreet 2). “I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold” the wife cherishes her love for her husband and it is worth more to her than anything gold or money could buy (5). “Thy love is such I can no way repay” the husband loves his wife so much and she has no way of repaying such love (9). In this quote the wife is stating that her love is so much that nothing could stop it from flowing, “my love is such that rivers cannot quench” (7).
But pity the man who fall and has no one to help him up.” All those verses show that, love is perfect, love must be given freely, love in friendship may give you family, and a friend is needed by every person. As stated in the introduction, these books do an astonishing job of expressing love, and its different forms. Each book reveals its opinion on the subject of love. With each book describing a different relationship, it is the writer’s express wish that anyone who has read the paper will have a least a basic understanding of love. The mysterious force that is alluring and enthralling, unexpected and unavoidable, welcoming and deterring, mighty and terrifying.
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.
Known as the leader in classical poetry and drama, English writer William Shakespeare, captures the passion and emotions that the romance and depths of the human heart experiences in life. This is especially shown in his vast collection of sonnets which exemplified the “carpe diem” ideology of the period, and the love that one can have for another. Two of the most famous of Shakespeare’s works, Sonnet 55 [Not Marble, nor the gilded monuments] and sonnet 116 [Let me not to the marriage of true minds], are no exception to this theme in poetry. Both of these sonnets exemplify the love that the narrator has for a mistress in his life, and how he defines his love for them. Throughout both poems, Shakespeare conveys his purpose through the content, the overall theme of love and its permanence, and the form and structure in which the sonnets are written that can sometimes break the traditional rules.
"Shall I Compare Theeâ€¦?" by William Shakespeare is a sonnet. It describes a man's love and admiration for a woman. He says he is immortalizing their love by putting his feelings into words because "so long as men can breathe or eyes can see" people will be able to read this poem and know of his love for this woman. The language used in this poem is of praise for this woman's beauty and wonderfulness, words like "lovely, darling, and temperate," show the romantic nature of this verse portraying care and devotion.
