Porphyria 's lover is a tragic love story that ends in death and no remorse, “ her cheek once more blushed bright beneath my burning kiss: I propped her head up as before, only this time my shoulder bore her head which droops upon it still. The guy lacked empathy and compassion the love he had for Porphyria eventually brought her to her death. Whereas Adam and Eve the writer knows what he feels for Eve is strong, and he can barely resist her, however, he quickly comes to realize his thoughts may be uncalled for and obnoxious leading him to question himself. Unlike Porphyria 's Lover, Adam is disgusted and feels a sense of remorse he has empathy a conscience the writer states “until we say the truth there can be no tenderness, as long as there is desire we cannot be safe.” After being rejected by women, both narrators have extreme reactions, and both are internalized throughout the
Love and Violence is a work that was painted by Rosalyn Drexler in 1963. When walking through the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, there was an entire exhibit dedicated to Rosalyn Drexler’s work called Who Does She Think She Is? While walking through this exhibit, I saw Love and Violence and I was instantly pulled to it, intrigued by the use of colors and by the drama within the painting itself. Initially it looked like the couple was in a loving embrace, but in further examination of the painting I realized it’s not loving at all. The way the man is grabbing the woman’s neck is controlling.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, love and hate fall hand-in-hand. The oxymoron “This love feel I, that feel no love in this” demonstrates the sensation of love burning in Romeo, whilst annexing a mention of his struggle that Rosaline, the woman he seemingly loves, doesn’t reciprocate the same affection, indicating a prime example of a darker side to love (1.1.187). The oxymoron divulges a contradictory issue arising internally in Romeo. Shakespeare’s utilization of these oxymorons reveal that Romeo’s love indeed comes from an enemy family of his. As much as Romeo desires a perfect love life, his feelings of endearment perpetually battle with the supposed feelings of hate.
Commonly, the last thing couples would do is to cause harm to one another. While Porphyria’s lover, “In one long yellow string I wound three times her little throat around, and strangled her,” notes the speaker. Moreover, not only does the speaker strangle her, he kills her. Psychologically he is thinking that Porphyria felt no pain and she indeed wanted her death to happen. The speaker in “Porphyria's Lover” says, “no pain felt she; I am quite sure she felt no pain.” The speaker is not Porphyria, so he cannot be sure she did not feel anything.

Once she has appeared in front of him he already sense a sort of presence of her as she comes letting him know what she wanted directly.

Context After being enchanted by Oberon’s love potion, Titania is awoken by Bottom, who she then falls madly in love with. She starts swearing her to love to him, to which Bottom responds: Analysis A poetic irony - Shakespeare gives one of the most thoughtful lines in the play, to the least thoughtful of characters. Bottom says it all; sometimes there is no reason to justify true love. Often, when one’s mind becomes obstructed by love, most reason, logic and rationale goes away in order to fulfill that love. Therefore love really keeps little company to reason, and can become very foolish and filled with
The four rhymed quatrains are controlled successively by images of ice, fire, stone and earth- - exact images which symbolize particular moods and feelings relating to the overwhelming desire for oblivion. This single poem sums up and epitomizes many of the inchoate feelings that were diffused among the various poems of Relationships.

Despite popular opinion, love at first sight does not exist. The idea of “love” is widely misinterpreted as a mere attraction between two individuals. However, many do not understand that love goes much further than this, and what follows is a common misconception between love and lust. Shakespeare in his 17th century play Twelfth Night delves deeper into this idea of love. He presents the character Duke Orsino who appear to be infatuated and love-sick for the Countess Olivia, a woman with which he knows little about.
In this poem the controlling metaphor permits the reader to gain a connection to the speaker and feel as if they can relate to them, especially for females. When paston wrote this poem in 1978 women were supposed to do everything around the house and in Marks the speaker was a stay at home wife and mother during this time. The controlling metaphorreally alters our perception to the family and represents the significance of the mother 's emotional defeat. First, her husband, the start of the poem and who is portrayed as "the leader of the house". Paston uses letter grades when talking about her husband and there is a great deal of significance behind this.
