The relationship is depicted as a very loving and caring relationship while the disadvantages of the relationship are discussed as well.

The main character of this poem is basically trying to seduce the girl, who is hesitant about him, to fall in lust with him. He starts off by stating that she is a precious thing that more than anything deserves to be cherished slowly and at the pace she is comfortable with. Directly after, he states the issue with her wanting to wait for the right moment, so to speak, is that time is constantly fleeting and there is not much of it left. Andrew Spacey, a poet and author, states “The argument builds up through the three sections of the poem, starting off with the speaker’s assertion that the lady’s coyness wouldn’t be deemed a moral crime if they had all the world in which to spend time together” (Spacey). Spacey is correct in stating how the speaker feels as though the couple is running out of time to develop lustful feelings.
The poem is strengthened by the eloquent use of diction. The first stanza is affective in communicating the idea of love, affection, and remembrance for one’s lover. The speaker describes a memory of the how one was during the time one speaks of, and what one did to cling to the “presence” (line 12) of one’s lover. The poet stylistic in using short lines and abrupt breaks in line allows for the poem to flow, enabling the mine to stop and take in the words. The opening line is a perfect example of this notion.
“Love is when the other person 's happiness is more important than your own”-H Jackson Brown Jr.This idea exhibits the importance you give towards someone’s love is more necessary than yours. In the book Cyrano de Bergerac, Cyrano tries to demonstrate the love between him and Roxane by the use of poems and using Christian as an assistant. For example, “A little longer she is always here”. We can see that the quote is demonstrating the impatient approach towards love in within someone increases when beauty does not surround you.Despite this story using a various approach towards manipulating us to the theme, the poem uses literary and symbolic devices to exhibit the poet 's life. However, in the poem, the poet uses the ocean to show that all of his emotions are mixed to form one big vast area.
Love, for many, is hard to describe, even for the most experienced writers. Cleary’s TEDx video proposes a few theories about love, one of which, she says, “We love in order to quench our physical and psychological desires.” One’s desires are based on their past experiences; causing their actions to be, as well. Hence, love in the past can impact present romantic relationships in unpredictable ways. Falling in love may lead people to cheat on their already established relationships. Two writers, Wilde and London, approach the adulterous aspects of love in their works.
This essay will examine the diverse ways in which love has been presented in six poems from the chosen anthology. Chiefly, Christina Rossetti”s Remember is often considered to convey committed love, one that puts the other before itself. In Remember, the dying speaker, supposedly Rossetti herself, implores her lover not to forget her even after she is “gone into the silent land”. At first, the poem may appear to merely be the pleas of a persistent lover; however, concealed within the loving words, the persona”s tone is more complex than initially appears.

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.
William Wordsworth’s poem, ‘She Was a Phantom of Delight’, tells the story of a woman’s striking beauty as observed by the man who loves her and a man’s personal discovery of what makes a woman truly beautiful. William Wordsworth was a romantic poet; through his experiences he discovered the romantic side of his life which was his wife. Through this poem he has described and emphasized his love and admiration for his wife. The poem dramatizes the conflict between fantasy and reality as it relates to beauty. In my essay I will talk about how he portrays an ideal woman and his gratitude towards his wife, through several literary devices, diction and the structure of the poem.
Andrew Marvell’s “To his coy mistress” explores his eloquent pleading to his lover for fulfilling the sexual desire. The poem beautifully encompasses many literary devices such as assonance, hyperbole, allusions, alliteration, etc. It follows a rigid iambic tetrameter rhythm with rhythmic couplets. The poet presents and defends his three arguments in three different stanzas. He creates a utopia at the beginning which develops into the darker sides of mortality as the poem proceeds.
