In the poem, Sonnet 18 written by William Shakespeare, the speaker expresses his deep compassion for his lover by comparing her beauty and presence to summer. In the prologue to the play Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, the poet portrays that deep compassion can be more precious than life itself. Lastly, in the poem “Annabel Lee” written by Edgar Allan Poe, the passion that the speaker expresses towards his wife never ends even in rough times such as death. Throughout these three poems, it is evident that the power of love can influence people in many positive and negative ways, but even in the toughest of times, the affection towards each other remains. In the poem, Sonnet 18 written by William Shakespeare, the speaker expresses his deep compassion for the love of his life by using romantic phrases to prove the devotion they both share towards one another.
This opening line is mostly straight pentameter with a spondee which emphasises Orsino’s command; however by being written in iambic pentameter, not a sonnet, this shows how Orsino is misguided in love. Orsino’s comparison of love with food shows how much he needs love to
Unlike any other person who has stepped foot on this earth, William Shakespeare had a way with words. He is known for creating copious amounts of words and phrases that we still use today. This helped Shakespeare when expressing his love, since he would often express his love through his writings. Shakespeare’s words seem like they could jump off the page, and one can imagine the characteristics of a person Shakespeare is writing about with the slightest of ease. One can examine examples of this in “Sonnet 18: Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day” and “Sonnet 130: My Mistress’ Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun.” As one can tell from the titles, these are drastically different poems.
T. S. Eliot 's "The Fire Sermon" is a poem consisting of different speakers, tones, and sound patterns. I draw attention to these by slowing or speeding up while reading, changing the tone of my voice, putting emphasis on specific words or lines. T. S. Eliot composed this poem in 1921 ("T. S. Eliot Biography"), which is significant because this is after the war and his world would have been a "Waste Land". This real world is mirrored in his writings through filth and impurity. Stylistic choices bring forth the importance of sexual desire and emotional/physical impurity and highlight the irony of alluding to both Buddhism and Christianity because of their avoidance of passion.
Eliot (1). This is certainly true for his works “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” and “The Waste Land”. These works, written in the early days of the Modernist writing movement, show Eliot’s displeasure with the modern world he inhabited. This attitude is reflected in the two works mentioned above, and are expressed in the themes of isolation and miscommunication. While the title suggests that The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock is a love poem, the poem centres around the theme of isolation, as can be seen by the use of pronouns and the isolation of certain lines on the type page.
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.
The blending of witty and subtle remarks with emotion and feeling exposes John Donne’s scholasticism as a Metaphysical poets and brings the whole of experience into his poetry in which profound interest of experience can be analyzed to meet up the psychological curiosity of writing love and religious poetry. Actually Metaphysical poets wanted to do something unique that’s why they separated themselves from Spenser and Elizabethans poets. In his poem “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning”, Donne deals with conjugal love. While consoling his wife, the speaker argues that the parting can’t harm their love because their love is the love of souls. Similarly “Batter my Heart” is full of paradoxical statements.
Robert Browning rested during the Victorian age, such an age where love co-shadowed with confusion, religion and unrest. To the extent, Robert Browning is a poet of enthusiasm and love. Browning’s works portray the various thoughts of emotion, whether it is the simplicity of the spiritual love or the complexity of the thoughts and nature of love in Porphyria’s lover and in My Last Duchess. To portray a comparison between Porphyria’s lover and My Last Duchess it is important to perceive the common thoughts between both of these poems. Firstly both of the poems are forms of dramatic monologues, in which the two lovers express their tale of love and that of agony.
Abstract This paper describes the poetry of a well-known poet JOHN DONNE, in respect to his combination of love and religious poetry in the context of his metaphysical poems. The main themes of his poetry always aroused from the thought of ecstasy. In his poetry we can find a definite link between human love and divine love. He truly describes how the two souls in love depart from their bodies during their physical union and spiritually join together before returning to their actual bodies. This union purifies them and grants them spiritual satisfaction and fulfillment.
