Loves power for good does not really exist in Hardy's poetry, it may feel good at the time however, when it ends it makes people feel nostalgic and sad and perhaps they think about their relationships. Most of the love poems that Hardy wrote were based on his own experiences, which is the main reason why his poems are about love faltering over time as well as the basic losses, which follow. I feel he actually wants people to know about his losses. It could be because he does not want people to make the same mistakes. After the death of his spouse Emma, he questioned his long and unsuccessful marriage, regretting his lack of passion as explored in the final lines of 'After a Journey.
It seems that it w... ... middle of paper ... ...in “Song” the poet writes about the man he loved but can’t have because he died. They are both quite sad poems. The main differences are the love in “Song” can’t occur because someone has died, whereas in “First Love” both people are alive it is just either one sided love, or not allowed. From looking into John Clare’s history I found out that he was not allowed to marry the girl he loved, because she was a better class that him. Also “Song” concentrates very much on the bad bits, whereas “First Love” reflects on some of the good feelings the poet has had because of love.
Prufrock's happiness in another world, un-judged and secure, is then destroyed as he brings the human voice into the poem. Overall, “The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufrock” is multifaceted and can be misunderstood by the author’s choice of words and writing techniques. This complexity is what makes the poem unique and bursting with meaning. It captures an average middle age man who hasn’t found his identity and place in the world. It shows loneliness and the tedious life of someone who hasn’t happiness and true love.
The speaker amplifies frustration by using an eye rhyme to finish the poem. This doesn't show Dryden's lack of skill, but rather a way to frustrate a reader's rhyme. The last heroic couplet provides no hope and leaves only frustrating thoughts for the lover: "All wayes they try, successeless all they prove,/To cure the secret sore of lingering love". The speaker even argues that though Nature provides satisfaction for physical urges (e.g. hunger and thirst), Nature does not give Love the same satisfaction.
Although, the dreamy, vain quest for this perfect life mostly results in pretense, lying, and ceases in complete unhappiness. In George Meredith’s poem from Modern Love, the speaker conveys a kind of love that is very grim. Both characters long to escape their dark marriage. It seems their life together has regretfully been empty and full of pretense. That is shown in the beginning of the poem, when she does not want him to know she is crying, “At his hand’s light quiver to her head the strange low sobs...were called into her with sharp surprise.” (Line 2-4).
If I received 'To His Coy Mistress' I would be both offended and flattered, but I would have liked to have written it because it is so clever. I don't think either poem help us to truly understand love because one says you lie in a relationship and the other tells us that women are shy. They contradict each other, but this does not mean that one poem is right and one is wrong, it just shows us two different views of love.
The poem “For Love”,was written by Creeley for his wife. In this poem Creeley explains, the love someone has for another person, and how complicated it is making his life because the person doesn’t know how to explain their love. “Oh No” is a poem that is literally about a selfish person who ended up in hell, but this poem has a deeper meaning.

His loss of vision is very devastating to him, because he feels like the only way he can humbly serve God is with his gift of writing powerful poetry. Milton does not see the light of God or living life as much anymore without his vision. He does not understand why God would let this happen to him when he lived for serving God with poetry. This causes his faith and hope to
Although it may appear that he thinks that his wife loves him so much that she needs practice for when he dies, in other words he is fond of himself and that his wife loves him so much, he simply accepts that she loves him and is making this point purely to reassure her and make amends for his reluctant absence from her life. Yesternight the sun went hence, And yet is here today... ... middle of paper ... .... This poem, he is trying to stop her from leaving by talking to her and asking her. However, they both tell of their relationship and of their love. In answer to my beginning statement that I do not think that John Donne is more concerned with writing about himself than with adoring his mistress, I still believe that.
Much of Sir Thomas Wyatt’s poetry is seen as being reflective of his love life. His personal relationships certainly served as inspiration for a notable amount of his work. In Sir Thomas Wyatt’s poem “Blame not my lute”, the speaker addresses the unfaithful lover who has scorned him. The content of the poem strongly suggests that Wyatt himself is the speaker and the poem was written for his adulterous wife, Elizabeth Brooke. The lute player, the speaker of the poem, has changed the tune of his melody in response to the changes in his lover’s behaviour which have resulted in her unfaithfulness.
