Through his down to earth descriptions he shows how unrealistic are the conventional metaphors. There is a sense, however, that this is a sincere love. Although her. None "goddess" which he still loves her and in fact thinks that she is more beautiful than one of the women that are incredibly written about the use of metaphors. Sonnet as a satire "The sonnet plays with poetic conventions in which, for example, the eyes of the lover with the sun, her lips coral, and her cheeks are compared with roses.
The book and the poem have great works and uses of literary devices that show us that love is an unbreakable bond. The poem uses metaphorical symbolism to reveal that his emotions are as enormous as an ocean. Knowing that this poem is a metaphor we can assume see that the textual evidence is very keen and mild to find. However, the poem uses other ways to convey its messages such as hyperboles. In the last line, it indicated the hyperbole by mentioning, “ Below us, as far as my eyes could see”Tennyson 12.
Romeo is infatuated by Rosaline and he describes her using similar language and themes to Petrarch which he has clearly learned from a poem. This changes later on with Juliet where love is ‘experienced ‘ and not learned. Although Petrarch wrote his poems in the 1300s it is important to note that they were still popular during Shakespeare’s time and so he will have known of them and it is clear that during Shakespeare’s time men were still ‘courting’ women. This Petrarchan love can be seen through Romeo’s speech using poetic language such as “With Cupid's arrow. She hath Dian's wit” comparing Rosaline to the goddess of virginity.
Cesario’s response clearly identifies his cleverness, skill and how he is a natural poet. Olivia is so drawn in because Cesario’s type of poetry is new and spontaneous in comparison to Orsino’s cliched poetry (once again referring to the idea that Orsino is misguided in love). Here Shakespeare has used comic relief in this scene as Orsino himself would never live in a makeshift hut as he is ‘above’ that. Once Cesario leaves Olivia wants to know how one “so quickly may catch the plague?” This metaphor contains an element of violence, further painting the idea that it physically hurts Olivia to love and in an extreme case it may make her want to die. Overall, Shakespeare has presented love as a complex theme throughout Act 1 by consistently showing how love can either end in happiness or hurt.
This concept of love that Shakespeare displays in Romeo and Juliet is also shared in many of his poems, including Shall I compare thee to a summers day? (sonnet 18). With the use of rhyming, meter, figurative language, and tone, William Shakespeare’s, Shall I compare thee to a summers day (sonnet 18), conveys the theme of appreciation to his lover. The sonnet attempts to make a comparison between the season of summer and a lover by presenting the idea that his lover is “more lovely [sic]” than the season itself. The way that Shakespeare shows the shortcomings of summer and then proceeds to claim his lover is free of these flaws, helps build on the idea that he is appreciative for having this person in his life.
He is saying that this man's beauty will never fade because of his work, he believes the golden young man that Shakespeare wrote about will live forever in people's memories. Also, the subject is too bright to ever wander into death's path, meaning that his beauty and light is no match to Death. He will forever be young and beautiful, even in the eyes of Death as a result of that he is unflawed. In the 12th line of the poem, Shakespeare literally uses the word eternal to describe his poem, this shows that he believes people will be reading this poem for an extremely long time because, "so long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, / So long lives this, this gives life to thee," (lines 13-14). As long as his poem is popular, the story of the golden young man will be too.
In this play, The Tragedy of Hamlet, love is portrayed between the main character, Hamlet and the dear Ophelia. Even though their bond eventually breaks apart, I believe their love was true. I do not think Hamlet ever stopped loving Ophelia. It was the circumstances that forced him to take her out of his life. Ophelia was Hamlet’s one and only true love.
He doesn’t offer much of an introduction by employing the second person “you”. In context, however, it’s apparent the addressee must be the “Fair Youth” because of the enduring upcoming ideas of bestowing immortality on the subject, the same subject the poet’s expressed strong love for (Fort). For instance, the poet explains in line three that in these contents, or the sonnet, that he will shine bright. Specifically, more bright than an unswept stone that has aged poorly over time. An unswept stone in line four likely refers to memorials and tombs.
“Sonnet 89” offers a mature and raw point of view that is not found in “Sonnet 75,” and this helps get across the worldview of immortal love. Furthermore, though the symbols in “Sonnet 75” were well appreciated because they made the poem more complex and interesting, Neruda used every quatrain and tercet to bring to life this endless love he feels for his lover. He adds a form to realism in the way he writes his sonnet, and this in turn, makes the poem much more relatable than “Sonnet
In the very first sentence he says, “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” to compare his lover to the warmth and brightness that he/she gives to him. He shows the happiness that love can bring to people through this line. Being so in love that the one you care for is what brings you joy and warmth comparable to that of a beautiful summer day. This reveals the sentimental side of him as an author especially with the next line reading, “Thou art more lovely and more temperate:” with sentence structure that adds on to the previous statement on the peace and happiness that this lover brings to him showing the long lasting effects of love. He portrays
