Although both poems symbolized love and passion the ending of the poem could not have been more different. Porphyria 's lover is a tragic love story that ends in death and no remorse, “ her cheek once more blushed bright beneath my burning kiss: I propped her head up as before, only this time my shoulder bore her head which droops upon it still. The guy lacked empathy and compassion the love he had for Porphyria eventually brought her to her death. Whereas Adam and Eve the writer knows what he feels for Eve is strong, and he can barely resist her, however, he quickly comes to realize his thoughts may be uncalled for and obnoxious leading him to question himself. Unlike Porphyria 's Lover, Adam is disgusted and feels a sense of remorse he has empathy a conscience the writer states “until we say the truth there can be no tenderness, as long as there is desire we cannot be safe.” After being rejected by women, both narrators have extreme reactions, and both are internalized throughout the
When he set his mind to something, he made it happen, regardless of the struggles he encountered because of his race. He pushed through the oppression and showed great leadership along the way. However, the actions of James Meredith are in no way surprising after learning about his upbringing and how he got to Ole Miss.

She feels that they are full of a kind of potential to be honest and good human beings, however a majority of them seem to belittle women and not show any great character. But men, in her opinion, can also be sensitive and poetic, as she portrays Anne’s love interest Captain Wentworth. Jane Austen’s social mirror reflects her very broken, unfair, Victorian society in an accurate and entertaining way. Her literary catalog is filled with commentary and wit regarding gender inequality, and she did not hesitate to inject her works with her own personal beliefs and thoughts. Austen was a brave individual for putting such hefty arguments into her works, and was a unique author in the ways she could encapsulate her society in such a realistic manner.
Shakespeare 's “Romeo and Juliet” is one of the greatest love stories the world had a chance to experience. The play is about the love of two naive teenagers and their struggle as their families are feuding, which is the reason why the death is present in the play, though it may seem like the main theme in the play is love. Shakespeare’s death imagery is hidden but still makes the audience feel its presence, whereas his love imagery is on the surface and is very bold, fresh and original. Death has a really important part in the play, as sometimes it even gets personified by the characters. Throughout the play, all the main characters will rather experience death or witness it.

Brucker justifies Hughes as not only a successful writer, but he also “used grant money to establish African American theatrical groups in Harlem and Chicago that produced several of his plays.” (5) After overcoming much criticism by blacks and whites, Langston Hughes influenced several generations of African American authors, and that is widely acknowledged. “Langston Hughes” points out important characteristics of Langston Hughes that I find inspiring. Because Hughes kept climbing and never gave up like his mother advised him, he accomplished very big things that a lot of people do not get to experience. Some of the great things he accomplished were winning an Opportunity poetry prize, using grant money to establish African American theatrical groups, and making
II. Comparison and Contrast: These two literary pieces are one of the saddest love stories in literature. In most romances, their love bloomed slowly and their love was truly above all and became the purpose of their lives, loving each other till their last breath.

The short story by William Faulkner entitled “A Rose for Emily” is the best short story from the reading assignments this week due to the authors use of characters, setting, plot, and symbolism in a manner that draws the reader in and makes the reader want to know more about the events leading up to the death and funeral of Emily Grierson (Kirszner and Mandell, 2012).
