While “They Flee From Me” portrays men as the victim to women and their deviousness, “Amoretti” takes an opposing turn from how most poetry of that time wrote about love by celebrating it in a positive and joyful way. “Amoretti” was a change and very different from most writings about love which expressed either death or dismay and Spencer talks about it as the most joyful experience . Because of this it’s safe to say no one dies, is severely depressed, overcome with jealousy, or vengeance. The inspiration for “Amoretti” is Spenser’s experiences obtaining his wife and the love tale between the two before their marriage. These poems provide thoughts and visions of love as exciting, joy-filled, and most importantly a pleasure to be in.
He tells her that she is impossibly beautiful by saying, “Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, / Who is already sick and pale with grief, / That thou her maid art far more fair than she.” This proves Romeo to be good because it shows how much he cares about her and the way he treats her makes her feel good about herself.

He even knows that love between the two families is forbidden, but he is disloyal to his entire family by pursuing the love of their enemy. Also, no one knows about his secret love except Juliet, Friar Lawrence, and the Nurse. Therefore, he is lying to his family as well as disobeying them.
Carol Ann Duffy’s poem ‘Anne Hathaway’ is about Anne Hathaway’s and Shakespeare’s love for each other and how great it is. Whereas is Robert Browning’s poem ‘The laboratory’ is about a woman who poisons the woman her lover’s sleeping with. In ‘Anne Hathaway’s’ first lines the voice seems dreamy and passionate. Whereas, in ‘The laboratory’s’ the voice seems evil, keen and excited. ‘The bed we loved in was a spinning world of forests, castles, torchlight, cliff tops, seas where we could dive for pearls.’ Using the world ‘loved’ instead of ‘slept’ creates connotations of passion, love and as if their love was above everyone else’s.
When Daisy is on the verge of breaking things off with him to go to Gatsby, he says, "And what's more, I love Daisy too. Once in a while I go off on a spree and make a fool of myself, but I always come back, and in my heart I love her all the time." (251-252) This quote reveals that after years of this corruption, he has lost the ability to feel remorse for the wrongdoings that he has committed. The continuous corruption of adultery has created an unsympathetic man of Tom. Gatsby is a prime example of how corruption can lead to to the fall of a lifelong dream.
When We Two Parted is melancholy throughout, and is a lament for a lost love. This is different to La Belle Dame Sans Merci, as it is more enchanting and more to do with desire than love.

However, it lifts to a fairytale mood, where the character is filled with lust towards this mysterious woman.

Two of the poems found in this book were “Porphyria’s Lover” and “My Last Duchess”. In “Porphyria’s Lover”, Browning introduces a powerful insight into the demented mind of an extremely possessive man, while “My Last Duchess” tells a story about the Duke of Ferrara revealing to a guest the murder of his wife and the motives behind it. The two speakers share similar qualities, both being extremely possessive and completely unremorseful. A key difference between the two narrators is how they show their love for their mistresses.

He says to his cousin Benvolio, “She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, / To merit bliss by making me despair. / She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow / Do I live dead that live to tell it now (Act I, Scene I, Lines 223-226).” Here, it is explained that Rosaline has wit, and has promised her love to God instead of Romeo.
