This metaphor demonstrates how Paul D views love in a descriptive manner, its imagery allowing the reader to visualize and thus understand Paul D’s point of view. In this debate, Paul D proves to be right in that Sethe’s strong love eventually hurts her, yet Paul D ends up unable to survive alone. Thus, Morrison argues that love is necessary to the human condition, yet it is destructive and consuming in nature. She does so through the powerful diction and short syntax in Paul D’s warning, her use of the theme love, and a metaphor for Paul D’s heart. Paul D’s assertion that Sethe’s “love is too thick” is complex and powerful, as a result of Morrison’s use of short syntax and carefully selected diction (193).
The poem states that he loves as “dark things are to be loved.” He Fontenot 2 loves her secretly, “between the shadow and the soul.” The narrator does not love arrogantly or in vain. His love is precious and personal. Dark things are to be loved pri... ... middle of paper ... ...a dense fragrance that lives in his body. In “Sonnet XVII,” the text begins by expressing the ways in which the narrator does not love, superficially. The narrator is captivated by his object of affection, and her inner beauty is of the upmost significance.
The author concludes the poem with “when I loved only my happiness and you.” (24) His ultimate choice of a selfless tone alludes that the narrator has learned a lesson in love and relationships. There will be rainy days but we must not lose hope. We have to learn to appreciate these bad days and deal with them for the one we love. The experiences of these sad and dark days result in a deeper strength of love with each other. In this poem, Walcott provides the readers with an understanding of what is means and takes to be in love and acceptance.
It is quick, short, and succint. He may have been going through some emotional difficulty, as the last lines of the poem talk about love being destroyed. His use of metaphors are brilliant in such a short poem, and is quite a catchy tune. However, it is also very subtle, and unless one knows the background of Blake, the religious undertones can be missed. Blake feels that love must be nurtured and grown, and since he felt he had a special relationship with god, no doubt some tragedy has happened that has made him lose faith.
"A Valediction Forbidding Mourning" is one of John Donne's most famously metaphorical poems. The poem is considered an argument, which is intended to prove his love to his wife Ann. It unfolds as a catalogue of strange comparisons. The speaker compares their love to dying old men, earthquakes, stars, gold, and a mathematical compass. It's difficult to follow, but comes together to form a rare picture of love, love that isn't tied to a person's physical presence, but a spiritual love that can endure even the toughest situations.
Although he can list the lover’s shortfalls, he able to show that he lacks her good traits. Despite that fact that he is stellar, he needs her to complete himself and to shine.

Moreover, Collins manages to describe from some angles a romance in the absence of a rhyming scheme. In its place, Collins entertains he reader with a comical, light-hearted, puzzle.
William Blake, a poet that strongly believed in the power of mind, once wrote, "if we see with imagination, we see all things in the infinite." The Romantic poets use their imagination when gazing at nature, and therefore see and feel the infinite through their poetry. William Wordsworth expresses the serene beauty that nature possesses and its calming effects on the mind. Samuel Taylor Coleridge, one of the poetic geniuses of the age, uses nature and his imagination to create surreal atmospheres. Another Romantic poet, by the name of Percy Bysshe Shelley, shows great longing for the freedom that nature possesses and the freeing effect it has on him.
However, Shakespeare actually provides a pragmatic critique of the conventions of love poetry in his doing so. He not only exposes the flaws of the love poetry through the comparison but also suggests the merits of it in conveying the idea of his everlasting love, and the ability of verse to immortalise both love and beauty. “Sonnet 18” is written in typical Shakespearan sonnet form, comprising of three distinguishable quatrains and a rhyming couplet. This style of poetry is very useful in creating an argument that flows coherently, as the quatrains seperate main ideas. Although the quatrains in “Sonnet 18”, are not physically split-up by open lines, they are clearly separated by the change in rhyme scheme.
