Anne Hathaway: Wife of William Shakespeare, Lover of John

- This is my own interpretation of the life and times of Anne Hathaway based on what little we know about her. My version is somewhat sensational, please excuse me for this. Anne (alias Agnes) Hathaway was born in 1556 to parents Richard and Joan and was certainly raised with her brothers and sisters at Hewlands Farm Shottery. Her Father was a Farmer and he was to remarry when Joan Hathaway died. We can assume that Anne Hathaway received home schooling at best or no schooling at all at worst and lived most of her life until marriage in the hamlet of Hamlet, one mile away from Stratford in the forest of Arden....   [tags: biography, biographical essay]

Carol Ann Duffy's Anne Hathaway Poem

- ... The pearls mentioned in the poem may be pearls of wisdom shared by a lifetime of experience. However the sea may be a reference to sexual pleasure in which the couple dived through together in order to procreate, thus the pearls would be metaphors for their children, found through the exploration of sex and love. By employing enjambment Duffy encourages the continuation of imagery beyond a mere line and proves that just because it did not conform to what was socially expected of a marriage at the time, it made it no less important....   [tags: poetry analysis, Shakespeare, Second Best in Bed]

The Theme of Love in Sonnet 130 , Anne Hathaway, Havisham and The Laboratory

- The Theme of Love in Sonnet 130 , Anne Hathaway, Havisham and The Laboratory First of all I will be talking about William Shakespere’s Sonnet 130. Now this poem has a rather odd element to the other poems. Some may say this is romantic but others may disagree. Now the people who disagree have justified this by the way of writing and the use of words. Where the opening line is “ My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;” This line is straight away implementing that either he is saying his lovers eyes are so beautiful that they cannot even be compared to the sun or he is saying his lovers eyes are nothing like the sun’s....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Hathaway]

Distinctive Voice in Carol Ann Duffy’s Anne Hathaway and The Laboratory by Robert Browning

- 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....   [tags: Poetry, Love, Murder]

Anne Brandstreet and Female Identity

- There are not many “major” female writers in American Literature, and writing, traditionally, has always been viewed as a masculine activity. It is therefore very interesting, and even ironic, that the first author published in the newly established Puritan society on the American soil, Anne Bradstreet, was a female. Indeed, Bradstreet's poems are filled with female presence. However, I also sense that Bradstreet’s feminism is held in check by her Puritan values, and there is a conflict created throughout her writing between this society of Puritan patriarchy that she lived in and her identity as a female....   [tags: Anne Brandstreet Poems Poetry]

Anne Bradstreet's Poem, To My Dear and Loving Husband

- Anne Bradstreet Anne Bradstreet lived in a time when devotion in a wife to her husband was a social law. This poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” is a loving tribute from Bradstreet to her husband. Certainly, in the early American, Puritan colonies, this work would have been seen as a wife’s duty as well as a lovely gesture. Today, however, it might well be seen as the babblings of a dependant wife. This was my reaction to the poem when I first read it.

However, from the 1820s onwards the economy rapidly expanded as a consequence of the industrial revolution and many men started to work away from home in industrial and commercial firms, leaving their wives at home to carry out the dom...   [tags: Anne of Green Gables, Little Women]

Another interpretation of the controversy surrounding Anne Hutchinson asserts that she was simply a loving wife and mother whose charisma and personal ideas were misconstrued to be a radical religious movement. Since this alleged religious movement was led by a woman, it was quickly dealt with by the Puritan fathers as a real threat.

Anne Bradstreet's Poem

- Anne Bradstreet's Poem "To my Dear and Loving Husband" Anne Bradstreet?s poem, ?To my Dear and Loving Husband. presents a beautiful love theme. "Of ever two were one, then surely we" (1). This quotation is important because Bradstreet is pointing out that she does not feel as though she is one individual person.

The Book Shakespeare's Wife about Ann Hathaway

- Few endeavors would appear as arduous and maddening to a responsible scholar as a biography of Shakespeare's wife, Ann Hathaway. We have almost no solid facts about Mrs. Shakespeare's life, and we know almost nothing about the Shakespeares' marriage. We know that the playwright could have brought his wife to live with him in London and did not, though we don't know how often he made the three-day trip back to Stratford. We know that in his will, he left his wife only his "second-best bed." From this slender evidence, along with liberal and dubious readings of the plays and sonnets, scholars have created a robust portrait of the Shakespeares' unhappy domestic life - a "marriage of evil auspi...   [tags: Germaine Greer]
