Despite, him being hurt by her decision, there is no sign of bitterness in this poem as he only speaks peacefully and generously in the last two lines of stanza 5– “..ilka joy and treasure”. The lines could suggest that Burns may have wished that her marriage would break down, or that her husband would leave her but he wished her the best. Rossetti’s love was deep and pure in a way that she expresses her emotions and pleads for her beloved to not forgot her; in line 6 she says ‘’that you had planned our future’’ which indicates that there was a deep connection of wanting to be together. Her realisation of making him not forget, will put him in misery of remembering the memories they had together. Like Burns, she sacrifices her personal desire in an expression of true love.
Both authors convey these themes using the literary devices of diction, imagery, and tone. Both Williams and Shelley use the literary device of diction to convey their theme. In “A Love Song”, Williams writes that “the stain of love / Is upon the world”, showing how after one falls in love, they can never see the world the same again, because to
The author Eric Hanson reminds me to prioritize my happiness and let go of things that are making me gloomy through the character in the poem ‘Holding on and letting go’. This text is about an individual who finds it difficult to discard the emotional attachment she has developed to the thing that is hurting her. The character mentions, “I always thought that holding on, was worth the pain it takes.” She has settled on sacrificing her own happiness most likely in fear of hurting someone or someone hurting her. But in the end, she makes a choice to put herself above the satisfaction of others and realize that positive things can come out of letting go. The negative connotations at the start of the poem made me feel helpless as a reader because the character seemed to be in a powerless struggle with her conscience.
The speaker of the lyric begins by tending to a lady who has been ease back to react to his sentimental advances. In the principal stanza he depicts how he would love her if he somehow managed to be unrestricted by the limitations of a typical life expectancy. He could invest hundreds of years respecting each piece of her body and her protection from his advances would not debilitate him. In the second stanza, he mourns how short human life is. When life is finished, the speaker battles, the chance to appreciate each other is gone, as nobody grasps in death.
Now speaking about role of memory, it has certain properties depending on the type of poem we are writing. If we want to write a melancholic poem, certainly we would be digging up sad memories from our past. similarly, if we want to write a blissful poem, happy thoughts and memories would be recollected.

Another example is that the Wife of Bath convinced the Knight ,by explaining that the things, which are her being old, plain, beasly born and poor, making the knight prevent him from loving her are in fact what should make him love her, that he had to give up his power in order for her to acquire it, for if he had not given her control of the partnership, both would have been unhappy through the rest of their lives. We also know that she gives the answer, which nobody were able to argue its accuracy, to the question what women want. From that we can also deduce that she is, in fact, “a mistress in the game of
The ridicule of love is a prominent theme throughout the play, most obvious though Phoebe’s interactions with love. She is the reason for Silvius’ borderline obsession, and frequently reasons why she does not want to be with him. Phoebe ridicules Silvius, an individual who oozes traditional pastoral views on love, which includes passionately longing for the person he believes to be his one true love, for having these very ideals. She ridicules the fact that Silvius stated that her “eyes can wound” because she believed that “there is no force in eyes that can do hurt” (3.5.16, 25-26). Here, Phoebe debunks every stereotypical view on love that was shown in the pastoral age, where lovers loved each other to painful lengths, where the mental pain of not being able to be with one another transformed into physical pain.
