The second line of the poem brings out that aspect as it says “White stars is no less lovely being dark.” This line means that just because a person is black does not make them less beautiful. The readers can see how Countee Cullen’s was importance and is seen as being a big impact on the Harlem

It seems as if the narrator is a very sorrowful, lonely, and depressed man. The portrayal of the character in that sense allows one to also experience his emotions and influences one’s feeling of forlorn. Edgar Allan Poe paints the setting of a dark, dingy chamber… full of heartache. Making one feel lonely and dreary. The narrator faces conflict between himself and his lost lover Lenore, leaving one feeling empathetic for the narrator.
She openly confesses her love for Robert Browning in Sonnet XLIII pondering “How do I love thee?” Before continuing to launch into an overwhelming exegesis of the bounds of her love for him and finally concludes “If God choose, I shall but love thee better after death” demonstrating the strong belief in religion during the Victorian era as opposed to the worship of material possession we see in society today. She believes that God’s power over the body and soul of a person in death is the only thing that is stronger than the love she exudes for Robert, but she still hopes that her love will only grow in the afterlife as she believes true love lasts forever and never changes in sonnet XIV “Thou mayst love on, through love’s eternity” the repetition of love highlights the significance of love to Barrett-Browning and refers the timelessness of love in which she believes, a life after death, she uses this to demonstrate her devotion to love and her belief in faith, which was key to the Victorian

Numerous screenwriters and directors have often dealt in their films with the theme of borders, whether literal and officially recognised, like military ranks or state frontiers, or abstract and metaphorical, like those of morality, justice, race, and gender, along with several others. As a consequence, as John Gibbs points out, one could assemble these movies, especially those taking place on the confines between Mexico and United States, under the label of ‘border films’ (2002: 27); thus contextualising them in a very specific tradition, which includes pictures such as Touch of Evil (Orson Welles 1958) or The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (Tommy Lee Jones 2005). Accordingly, another notable movie belonging to the ‘border film tradition’ is Lone Star: an acclaimed 1996 hybrid of western and mystery film conventions, directed and written by independent filmmaker John Sayles. The picture recounts the story of a murder investigation, which leads the main character, Sheriff Sam
Throughout the song, the use of anaphora is very prominent. In alternating lines of the first stanza the anaphora 'Some say love, it is a ' (v. 1, 3, 5), is followed by a different noun each time. Consequently lines 2 and 4 describe the action of each noun, also with the use of an anaphora, in this case 'That ' (v. 2, 4). Each noun used to describe love is a metaphor.
To conclude, both of the poems make their point, love cannot be defeated by distance. Moreover, John Donne and Anne Bradstreet prove with examples that love is so powerful, and by making that point, both of them are showing that their characters are going to be together no matter what. Probably they might find obstacles in their way; the physical presence does not matter and distance cannot separate what they feel for each other because their souls are going to be still connected just like one entity.
Starting at line 5 and going to line 8, Keats imagines love as something written on the night sky. He starts by personifying the sky, in line 5 he says “..the night’s starred face,” which allows him to connect the sky to a person or in this case a human emotion. He brings the emotion of love and the concept of romance into his poem in line 6, “..symbols of high romance,” and in the following two lines he shows how unreachable love is if death is to come to him sooner rather than later. By placing the love he, and everybody else, longs for in the night sky, and vast and mysterious place, he makes the journey to finding love a long hard one. A journey that could never be fully accomplished if death was to come too
(Bright Star! Would I Were Steadfast as Thou Art 46). Suddenly, Keats come to the realization that he does not want to feel lonesome like the star. Keats then begins to wish for qualities of which the star does not have. Following, Keats articulates a feeling of yearning for satisfaction.
John Keats was a poet during the early 19th century which is better known as the “romantic period”. The romantic period is not as romantic as it sounds, it was about a social, political, intellectual movement, as well as an artistic one. The writers of the romantic period felt as if they were backlashing at the previous era which was about science and enlightenment hence the lead to Great Britain's industrial revolution. The artists within the romantic period felt that the enlightenment era felt that they have lost what it meant to be human. When people usually look at the romantic period they usually look at the “Big Six” which includes John Keats.
The poem is a long and narrative one, in which he talks about Medieval period including Paganism & Christianity, he was interested in Romanticism hence Love was a topic he mentioned in the poem, Nature, Magic, Legends and Rebels were also present which encompasses the whole story in the poem. Keats admired Shakespeare and he read Shakespeare’s work insightfully, illustrating the greatness of Shakespeare 's creativity. Keats describes this genius as "Negative Capability". It is the idea that man is capable of being in uncertainty or doubt without striving to change this condition through searching for conclusions or reasons or it could the ability to contemplate the world without the desire to try and reconcile contradictory aspects or fit it into closed and rational
The memory of love in someone 's mind has always been found in someone 's poetry. It is hard to deny that poetry is one of the most fascinating writing and creative arts. There are so many poets in the history that get perceived as an admirable poet. It is not surprising that Ezra Pound is one of them because he had written the most beautiful poetry which is called The River-Merchant 's Wife: A Letter. This poetry is the glorious one that expresses the unspoken feelings of someone who have to separate from the lover into a love letter.
