    The existence of beauty is as dependent on the admirers as much as those who are beautiful. Edmund Waller’s “Go, lovely Rose” and Tony Hoagland’s “Beauty” explore the idea that beauty can be used as a tool to gain opportunities, and how it can anchor those who strive to obtain it. While both poems deal with the idea of beauty, the perspectives that each of them brings for a woman that they know is very different. With the usage of tone, imagery and metaphors, both authors tell the story of how beauty

In George Herbert's poem, "Virtue", and in Edmund Waller's poem, "Go, Lovely Rose", the poets have contradicting values of what should be done with our time on earth. Herbert is a puritan who believes that earthly pleasures should be ignored, as life should be spent preparing for another world after death. In contrast, Waller suggests individuals take

    Analysis of Edmund Waller's Poem "On a Girdle" At first glance, Edmund Waller’s poem “On a Girdle” seems to suggest nothing more than praise of one woman’s fair beauty and the speaker’s love for her. After diving deeper into the text, however, it becomes apparent that the speaker does a much better job of praising himself than the woman. His love is more a lust for control and possession than a true declaration of sentiment. Waller uses extreme imagery and exaggeration to seemingly praise

Although Edgar was always loyal to Gloucester, Gloucester resented Edgar after being deceived from Edmund saying that Edgar wanted to kill him. Gloucester’s lack of sight made him believe that Edmund was a good son even though all Edmund cared about was taking away Gloucester’s title of Earl. Gloucester’s blindness up to this point in the play is metaphoric. As the play moves on Gloucester was betrayed by Edmund and left at the merciless hands

    women in King Lear, King Lear 's daughters, all have fairly unique personalities from each other. Cordelia is the least like the other sisters being a fairly moral character, while Goneril and Regan are the definite villains of the play (along with Edmund). Even so, Shakespeare does provide a small amount of sympathy for the sisters as King Lear is shown to be a fairly stubborn character himself towards his daughters, especially towards Cordelia who is exiled. The sisters, primarily Goneril and Regan
