Straying away from the dazzling rhetoric, this Shakespearean poem projects a humane and friendly impression and elicits laughter while expressing a truer love. A Petrarchan sonnet states that love must never change; this poem offers a more genuine expression of love by describing a natural woman. People often want to ensure that they are loved and often demand to know why they are loved. When one is asked a question like "Why do you love me?" one should think about how to answer for a good while.
“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.
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. The love is so strong in this poem it can almost become unrequited love as she almost idolizes this person. Barrett Browning tries to measure her love for this man. The use of repetition of ‘I love thee’ may give a tedious tone to this poem but it really emphasizes her point. As her love in this poem is so large to explain she compares it to situations showing strength or other emotions such as joy, but even sadness is involved from the reference of tears.
The poems are similar in the way that the narrator is madly in love with the women, but different in the way which the narrators choose to reveal their unrestricted love. Poryphyria is a beautiful woman who is of a high social status. The narrator loves this women so irrevocably that he accepts that she does not want to invite him to the big parties she attends because she does not want to be seen with a man like himself. The narrator never wants to lose Poryphyria, which leads to the first literary element Browning uses-- situational irony. The entire poem leads the audience to believe that they are getting along, and they will be having a long night full of cuddling by the fire and loving on each other; however, when he strangles Poryphyria with her own hair, it tends to take the audience by complete surprise.
Burn’s poem is simply an expression of his emotions that he had towards a woman, by use of overblown metaphors and an elegant writing style. The primary idea that rejects the notion that the author was on his deathbed at the time of this writing is the fact that it is simply too upbeat. The literature also contains an “anticipatory” element in the poem. Also, the overall feeling of the poem is one of extreme happiness and excitement that Burn’s felt at the thought of a future with this woman. This is also reflected in the extensive metaphors used in this poem.
It is interesting to note that, this poem could be regarded as gender-neutral, without prior knowledge of the poet’s gender. The use of sound by Barrett Browning makes the poem appear more feminine. “How do I Love Thee” was written in the Victorian Era, and the use of imagery makes the sonnet, ultimately, seem to be a challenge to traditional gender roles, despite the slightly feminine tone. Overall, it cannot be disputed that “How do I Love Thee” is an expression for Romantic, undying and endless love on the behalf of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and is therefore a truly Romantic
"A Birthday" by Christina Rossetti is a blissful poem about n... ... middle of paper ... ...'They spoke as chords do from the string" All the poems bring out the essence of love, but they might lack some elements. Like for "How Do I Love Thee?" the poem starts well enough but then it gradually moves from reality to. "First Love" though, is much more realistic since it shows how a person might feel when being in love. The feelings and reactions are beautifully explained and therefore gives a lasting impression on the reader.
Shakespeare does not need to falsely compare his woman to someone divine. He expresses his lady as being simple and able to accept his true love. With his use of traditional Petrarchan writing, Daniel paints a perfect idea of a woman, one who is immortal and unattainable. Shakespeare, on the other hand mocks this style of writing and creates a vision of a more human woman who has flaws and is anything but perfect. In conclusion, these two writers have different views on what true love is, and the kind of woman they admire.

Not to mention he views all her unique ways and admits that he loves to hear her speak.
