Both Dickinson and Ferrante may have been motivated in their anonymity by a desire for privacy. Much of Dickinson 's poetry represents an exploration of profound affective experiences, and she undoubtedly felt vulnerable in such a situation. For example, in her poem, "I Felt a Funeral, in my Brain," Dickinson explores the speaker 's mental turmoil and subsequent descent into madness, a truly private and frightening experience. If Dickinson 's poetry reflects her personal experience, to any extent, it is unsurprising that she would wish to share her poetry with only her most intimate acquaintances; in publishing her work, her deepest emotions would be put on display for the scrutiny of strangers. Ferrante likely had a similar motivation for adopting a pseudonym, particularly if Elena 's thoughts and feelings are indeed reflections of the author 's own childhood experiences.

Introduction Sonnet 130 is considered to be in the group of poems addressing the so called ‘Dark Lady’, who the speaker hates, loves and lusts for simultaneously. In the Sonnet Shakespeare characterizes the Dark Lady’s appearance with metaphors, which are extraordinarily out of character for the Petrarchan traditions. Instead of lauding the unavailable mistress in the highest terms, as the Petrarchan tradition dictates, Sonnet 130 humorously mocks those traditions by ‘placing innovative pressure upon the limits of metaphoricity’ (Callaghan, 56). This paper briefly engages with Shakespeare’s witty criticism of the Petrarchan traditions and mainly focuses on the different notion of love that Shakespeare portrays in this Sonnet. In contrast to the clichéd way of declaring one’s love to the beloved, which mainly consisted of lauding the object of affection, Shakespeare compares the mistress to a number of beauties of nature - but always against her favour.
