    Shakespearian Love Sonnets Whilst reading the play, 'Romeo and Juliet', I encountered many beautiful images of love and many comparisons to objects to highlight a person's beauty. In the play, when Romeo first sees Juliet, he is overwhelmed by her utter beauty. He says: "O she doth teach the torches to burn bright! It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night As a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear- Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear: So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows

    Love, Sonnets and Songs. Mary Wroth's prose romance, The Countess of Mountgomeries Urania, closely compares with her uncle, Sir Philip Sidney, 1593 edition The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia.  Wroth was undoubtedly following her uncle's lead by trying to emulate Astrophil and Stella.  Astrophil and Stella and Pamphilia to Amphilantus are both about being in love and they both have over one hundred sonnets and songs.

    LOVE is word we Homo sapiens have defined and yet struggled to understand throughout time and different cultures. It is a word that can mean simultaneously both pain and ecstasy. Such a simple four-letter word has been the bane of some poet’s existence and at the same time been the muse for others. When pondered about, love can be determined as an easy emotion but at the same time vastly hard to achieve. This contradiction and overall ideology has been the topic of poets, writers and artist since

    Reciprocal love in John Donne's Holy Sonnets Holy Sonnet XV deals with the question of reciprocal love that runs throughout Donne’s religious poetry. The Sonnet is an address of the speaker’s mind to the speaker’s soul; it is a meditation on the Trinity and man’s relationship to God.

Therefore, in his poetry he explored various methods and used them to describe the emotions associated with his love for a mysterious "dark lady

Shakespeare articulates his definition of love through fashioning love as a disease by using structure, metaphor, tone and imagery. Shakespearean sonnets contain three quatrains and a couplet with a strict rhyme scheme. The quatrains alternate in rhyme (ABAB
