Shakespeare's poem also has a loving mood. He explains that no matter what happens his love for his lover will never fade an he will always be by her side. This makes the reader feel his loving mood toward her. Making his poem have a tone of appreciation and loving mood. Unlike in the poem What my lips have kissed, and where, and why by Edna St. Vincent Millay has a depressing tone.
Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable". Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
He tries to show that his lover and he are united in a very strong feeling of love that could not be broken or separated. He always thinks about his lover whenever, wherever, and whatever he is doing. I think, Cummings is trying to show his bounding to his lover in a dramatic way. Talking about the diction, as I stated before, this poem is written with simple diction and no ambiguous words. However, its simplicity of diction does not lessen its meaning.
There are very many themes and each of those themes can be interpreted very differently by both the writer and the reader. American romantic poets Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman wrote on the same topics and themes of romanticism, but they had very different views. Emily Dickinson was put away by society, so she cut herself off completely from the unjust and stark society. Walt Whitman on the other hand loved how diverse society and how anyone has the freedom to choose their path. Additionally when everyone’s song is combined it creates a beautiful melody.
The way in which they end up together, which is due to the outcome of the battle between their people, sparks some interest on how Shakespeare depicts love in the story. Their love story is the weight that balances that the unfortunate events surrounding Lysander, Hermia, Helena and Demetrius. It seems almost ironic that Theseus and Hippolyta are happy after their union stemmed from a conflict and not “naturally”. This small event shows that Shakespeare is hopeful love and all love stories, will reach their balance, some easier than others but the conclusion of this story represents this thought. Once again, the relationship this theme has to real life is very strong, we all know that love is difficult but if it is meant to be, sooner or later, it will
One writer, Priscilla Martin believes he is even supported of women and has model the Wife of Bath after himself, “The Wife of Bath shares [Chaucer’s] delight in fictional and narrative diversity. Of the pilgrims she is the closest to Chaucer. Like her creator, she criticizes through comedy, she weighs authority against experience and experience against authority, she is aware of the sexuality in textuality and she jollily subverts the conventions of male authorship. (217) Jill Mann also believes this and adds on and says all the positive characters were women, and the male characters were all
Through this scene it becomes obvious this song evokes idealism because of both Daisy and Gatsby’s unrealistic dreams and awareness of how simple life could have been if they stopped pursuing empty pleasure. Lana Del Ray wrote the song “Young and Beautiful” to make the themes of the novel The Great Gatsby into modern words. Lyrics that are able to turn one movie scene into profound in depth thoughts and ideas about decayed social and moral values, thwarted love between a man and a woman, and social trends. In a way not only do her lyrics adhere to the mood of the novel, but the overall song creates the atmosphere of an aching soul. This song truly shows Gatsby and Daisy’s love, insecurity, and beauty that they
In the "balcony scene" of Shakespeare, Romeo discreetly listens to Juliet 's soliloquy. However, in Brooke 's version, she makes her declaration of love while alone. By introducing Romeo to the scene where he eavesdrops, the author departs from the normal sequence of courtship. Normally, a woman was asked to follow a pattern of behavior based on modesty and shyness, in order to make sure that her suitor was honest. The reason for deviating from the sequence mentioned, is because Shakespeare wanted to speed up the plot a bit.
Moller tries to connect through “Maude Clare” so she can get a better understanding of the poem. Moller believes Rossetti composes a narrative poem with little description of the environment so that the readers read the poem as play. (#4) “Maude Clare deals with a more complex form of tragic love because the bride and groom have no joy during the wedding because Maude Clare is trying to cause problems.” (#4) Moller believes Rossetti only highlights the tension between Maude Clare and
Hughes uses strong descriptively forceful phrases like “fester like a sore” or “stink like rotten meat” when writing to gross out the reader but also to entice them to read more. Cullen who also uses descriptive language goes for a more calm approach using phrases like “silken cloth” or box of gold.” Cullen uses less visual description and more of a mental description. He pushes a happy feeling with a box of gold wrapped in a silken cloth and then makes the reader sad when he says that he has laid them away. Hughes and cullen both are descriptive but they don't describe in the same way. The poem by Langston Hughes and Countee Cullen are very different in the way they portray emotion, how they should be read and the way in which they are written but they are very similar in the main theme and that is
Where as the authors can not forget the past, but she is allowed to do what she wants and can forget the bad times. This relates to the theme of the poem because the theme is do you, so if that is what she needs to do then she can go ahead and shed the memories/weight away. This is only one of multiple metaphors the authors use to illustrate the theme of the poem. Another example of a metaphor used in the poem is found in stanza 10 line 1, “You, my love, are allowed to speak in kisses”. This is a metaphor, because one cannot actually speak in kisses, so it is saying that she can show love to others around her.
