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. Collin’s paints the image of man without much stability who is perfectly matched with woman who, ignoring other standards, completes and compliments him. 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.
Browning’s character mak... ... middle of paper ... ...nd T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock both center on a theme of love and rejection. The protagonists of both works end up alone despite their efforts and desires to be with the ones they love. Browning’s protagonist desperately tries to remain with his love – almost as though he is gripping on to something so he can remain in the present and never move on, and Prufrock never takes the leap he needs in order to tell his love how he truly feels about her. Although both characters use very different approaches to deal with their feelings, both end up alone because love is uncontrollable and does not rest in the power of any human being.
That means, the approaches of poet’s love remain the same. In one place, he portrays beauty as conveying a great responsibility in the sonnets addressed to the young man. The poet has experienced what he thinks of as "the marriage of true minds," also known as true love, that his love remains strong, and that he believes that it’s eternal. Nothing will stop their love, as in the symbols like all the ships, stars and stormy seas that fill the landscape of the poem and so on what can affect to their love. The poet is too much attracted with the young man’s beauty, though this indicates to something really bad behavior.
From this line the reader right away gets a yearning feeling, an almost sad and melancholy feeling, because of the word long. If you were to remove the word long you would find that line too much more pleasant. This attitude is continued thought the sonnet and is one of the key differences betwe... ... middle of paper ... ... that doesn’t "treads on the ground.” love that is "as rare/ as any she belied " and no amount of visions of "a goddess" would change that. In the end, what is seemingly two simple sonnets about love turn out to be two very different viewpoints on the topic: two men writing about a topic that clearly is important in their lives. Reading each poem is a gateway into the author’s mind, letting us see their own thoughts and feelings on the subject.
Therefore, he implies that his love is a divine love. In "The Canonization," the speaker conveys a love deserving of admiration and worthy of sainthood. In the poem, the lover describes his love as incomprehensible. In the heat of discussion, the lover insults his companion's intelligence with the statement, "Take you a course, get you a place" (5). The speaker implies that his listener does not possess the adequate amount of intelligence necessary to understand his complex love.
“For, lady, you deserve this state,” (Line 19.) However, the opening to ‘To His Coy Mistress’ displays an attitude towards love that is not too serious; despite Marvell going into great depth about how he would love the woman. “Nor would I love at lower rate.” (Line 20.) The poet uses a certain tonality and rhyming couplets which do not help to create a tense and romantic ... ... middle of paper ... ...h has an attitude that is much more serious than that explored in ‘To His Coy Mistress.’ In conclusion, ‘To His Coy Mistress’ by Andrew Marvell displays a view towards love which is more of a sexual lust… a carpe diem that shows his hunger and interest of sexual intercourse with the woman. It is clear that Marvell does not have enough time to love the lady properly, and the language and structure of the poem creates an overall humorous and fun attitude towards love.
Silvius reflects the behavior of the courtly lover, who is capable of the most foolish actions for the sake of his beloved, and who suffers the pangs of unrequited love and the abrupt separation from his lady. His only concern is love and, although he is uneducated, his language is lofty, poetic, and artificial when he speaks in praise of Phebe. Indeed, both Phebe and Silvius speak in elaborate verse in order to comply with the courtly love conventions. In their courtship, Silvius praises her virtues and begs for the slightest sign of affection, and Phebe scorns and rejects him all along.
The speaker knows his mistress doesn’t have those prized features and that she is not perfect but he still loves her more than anyone else. He believes false comparison of his mistress’s beauty for the sake of poetry is meaningless. Here, the speaker chooses to ignore the faultiness in his mistress’s physical appearance because he thinks she is “worth” it. This indeed is a true meaning of
Overall in my opinion ‘The Sick Rose’ is the poem that depicts the imperfect nature of love best. This is because it is the most serious of the poems and it is the one that contains the most warnings. In the other two poems there is a feeling of happiness. Even in ‘To His Coy Mistress’ there is a sense of love in the relationship. ‘The Sick Rose’ however does not give any feelings of happiness but instead reveals a rather dark side of love that nobody would like to be part of.
The exchanges between Giovanni and Beatrice begin as simple lust and no deep emotional understanding and attachment, yet drastically changes to true love and an emotional attachment they have for each other due to the recent communications they have developed. The author’s message about love is that it does not always end in a happy ending and that love comes in many different forms. Giovanni shows interest in Beatrice only for her pure physical assets and body language and starts to truly fall in love with this divine young creature. Giovanni’s feelings for Beatrice at the beginning of the story are vivid and de... ... middle of paper ... ...this far-fetched setting but the overall theme is in real life. Love is a necessity in everyone’s life to feel like a hole and sometimes people get mixed up between love and lust.
