A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning and The Sunne Rising

- A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning and The Sunne Rising To say that Blake and Donne do not write uplifting poetry is a great injustice to their works. Although some of their poems discuss themes of depressing nature, on a wider scale both Blake and Donne write poetry which is not only uplifting but also inspiring and extremely worthwhile to read. The two main themes covered by these two writers are love and death. The poems which use love as the main theme inspire the reader and offer hope that true love exists and is not a fragment of their imagination....   [tags: Valediction Forbidding Mourning Essays]

The Flea and The Sun Rising

- The metaphysical era in poetry started in the 17th century when a number of poets extended the content of their poems to a more elaborate one which investigated the principles of nature and thought. John Donne was part of this literary movement and he explored the themes of love, death, and religion to such an extent, that he instilled his own beliefs and theories into his poems. His earlier works, such as The Flea and The Sunne Rising, exhibit his sexist views of women as he wrote more about the physical pleasures of being in a relationship with women....   [tags: Literary Analysis, John Donne]

Love Interpretation in The Sun Rising and The Canonization

- What pops into your mind when you hear the word love. When people hear the word love many people think of romantic love. The word love has many other interpretations such as loving your neighbor, loving of one’s nation, and loving of God. People need to avoid thinking about something as important as love so superficially. Both John Donne’s “The Canonization” and “The Sun Rising” use metaphors to deal with whether the nature of love and whether it is really mysterious. While Donne’s “The Sun Rising” focuses on romantic love, his poem “The Canonization” delves into the many facets of love beyond the mere romantic such as being consumed by love, dying by it, and being reborn through love....   [tags: love, loving, poetry, canonization]

John Donne's The Sun Rising

In an essay entitled "John Donne," Achsah Guibbory supports this reading of the poem, stating, "The world of love contains everything of value; it is the only one worth exploring and possessing.

John Donne's The Sun Rising

- John Donne's "The Sun Rising" In his poem, "The Sun Rising," Donne immerses the reader into his transmuted reality with an apostrophe to the "busy old fool, unruly sun" that "through curtains" calls upon him, seizing him from the bliss which "no season knows." This bliss, a passionate love, stimulates him to reinvent reality within the confines of his own mind, a wishful thinking from which he does not readily depart, much like a sleepy child clings to the consequences of a dream. In his address to the sun, he bids "the saucy, pedantic wretch" "go chide late schoolboys, and sour prentices," resembling a petulant youth imploring for more time to slumber....   [tags: Sun Rising Essays]
