In “Love Poem” Nim uses a metaphor in the first stanza to emphasize his love clumsiness. Frederick says “whose hands shipwreck vases” describing his love as a clumsy and destructive woman. This metaphor specifically compares his love’s hands to shipwreck vases suggesting that her hands are as destructive as storms are to ships. This metaphor can be also classified as a hyperbole. The breaking of a vase is not normally something you would refer to with the term “shipwreck” but this phrase exaggerates the image of the poem.
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.
This is implied in the last two lines “And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare, As any she belied with false compare”. Secondly I will be analysing Carol Ann Duffy’s poem Anne Hathaway. Now this is the same sort of poem as Sonnet 130. Personally I think the speaker of the poem was quite mad and was hurt after having bad experience with men. It says on the top of the poem shakespere left
Now that each poem has been paraphrased, it is simple to spy similarities and differences in their topics and structure. The similarities between “I” and “VIII” exist in their use of irony, paradox, and repetition of ideas. Irony is woven throughout both poems. In “I”, the most apparent ironic statement is “as he defeated, dying, on whose forbidden ear the distant strains of triumph break, agonized and clear.” While we expect those alive and celebrating their victory to appreciate it most, Dickinson states that the one who has died for his country is the one who really values the win. In “VIII”, it is stated that “mirth is the mail of anguish” which appears to contradictory.
As John Donne explores the nature of unconditional love, he employs metaphors, symbolism, and tone as the three main elements that reinforce the theme and contribute to creating a poem that both moves and connects to the reader. Throughout the poem, Donne employs metaphors extensively to emphasize the spiritual dimension of the love he shares with his wife. In the first stanza, the author compares his leaving with the death of “virtuous men” (line 1). As these men “whisper to their souls to go” (line 2), the lovers ought to accept the departure like the men are able to detach their bodies from their souls, and separate peacefully. As he continues to comfort his wife, he invites her to “make no noise” (line 5) and suggests that there should be “No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move” (line 6).
Analysis of Wordsworth’s Surprised by Joy Death, like ink dropped in a glass of water, taints one's perception of life by coloring every experience with a sad shade of grief. In his poem, "Surprised by Joy," William Wordsworth relates how a moment of joy caused him to remember the death of his four-year-old daughter, Catharine. The memory effectively crushed any positive feelings he had during his encounter with joy and replaced them with quilt and sadness. This sonnet, though Italian in rhyme scheme, abandons the typical conflict-to-resolution form of argument for one which begins with the desired end-result and progresses towards the heart of the problem. Throughout the sonnet, Wordsworth shifts from expressing raw emotions of joy and grief, to realizing his loss, and finally, to accepting her death on a very removed and intellectual level.
Lord Byron explores the link between love and loss, by directing the poem at an ex-lover. The title ‘First Love’ sums up the whole poem into two words. The poet was struck motionless by this sudden burst of affection. The poem does not link a chain of events, but instead is used so that the poet can put into words what is going on inside his mind, and to his body, ”And then my blood rushed to my face“. He recounts how his feelings affected him physically, as he blushed.
On the other side, “Love Poem” is very different from the previous poem. This seven stanza poem is based on a man describing the imperfections of his lover. In this, the speaker uses stylistic devices, such as alliteration and personification to impact more on reader, for example as the speaker shows “your lipstick ginning on our coat,”(17) ... ... middle of paper ... ...d are theme same them, love, but it is clearly that loves is not at and magical, it is hard and can even have consequences, for example cheating. Still, we should never forget that love is needed in our life, and it can be offered and obtained in different ways. Works Cited Collins, Billy.
In 1780 Samuel Johnson wrote “A Short Song of Congratulation.” It is a poem of praise to the actions of the nephew of a friend of Johnson. In the poem Johnson depicts the the young man defying the authority of his wealthy family and squandering a substantial inheritance. He is writing about more than the escape of a friend’s nephew, he is writing about his escape from a less than flawless childhood. In the poem Johnson relays to his subject, “If the guardian or the mother / Tell the woes of willful waste, / Scorn their counsel and their pother, / You can hang or drown at last” (25-28). Johnson is using the life and actions of another to relay the struggles he went through as a child to become successful.
The poet does this hoping that readers will feel sympathetic towards these women and spreading sadness through his poem.

A second example is “heart hung humble”-Line 23, where here the ‘h’ sound is repeated several times; this sound is heard as if someone is heavy heartedly exhaling which is relevant to the mother who has lost her son. Lastly, “great is the Battle-God great”-Line 10, in this line the ‘g’ sound is being repeated. The lyrical organic poem “Do not weep, maiden, for war is kind” by Stephan Crane has many poetic and stylistic devices incorporated in it.
