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.
This creates a melancholic tone, which is heavy-hearted but not quite sad or depressed, and connects to the theme that love distorts the rest of the world. The tone that Shelley creates in his poem “Love’s Philosophy” is entranced. He uses a considerable amount of religious phrases, such as “the winds of heaven mix forever / With a sweet emotion”, showing how the speaker is almost spellbound, both by the person they love, and the very idea of love itself (Shelley 3-4). This connects to Shelley’s theme of love being desirable to
It’s easy to see why the poem has caught so many eyes and become as popular as it has. It is an ever questioning tone that makes everything seem to fall in place. The twisting narrative of love and loneliness seems to capture audiences across the globe in the same sense of confusion and interest about the subject matter. Can people have sex without love and be completely satisfied, or is it all just a sad fantasy? The poem’s form puts emphasis on certain words at the end of each line for dramatic effect.
On the said poem, she talks about her perception of genuine love. She explains how she wants to be loved by her significant other. It may sound that she commands his lover on how he wants to be loved, but in reality,
The power of Eros love is evident in the play as true love continuously triumphs over Phileo love. The troubles of romance presented in the play present conflict that ultimately damages the friendship love of the Athenians through the irrational actions of the lovers. The Phileo love between Hermia and Helena is at stake because of the romantic love that exists between the different parties in the play. Helena mistakes her obsession with Demetrius with true love despite his poor treatment of her. However, Demetrius loves Helena’s friend, Hermia, and wishes to marry her.
Is it not surprising how lust and love are so much related to each other yet particularly unique? Both seem to find their way into sentimental connections in the poems Porphyrias Lover and Adam and Eve it is passed on precisely how perilous both can be and in certain cases even deadly. Both poems sketch deep passion and disappointment in men when it comes to the women they have chosen. Both writers give you this sense of passion along with inhuman like behavior; the only difference is one man had a conscience. Porphriyas lover is the ideal case of how love can go wrong and how greatly it can overcome one 's thoughts and emotions.
The poems that Sylvia Plath and Sir Philip Sidney present to the public eye leave one in complete awe because of the rich poetic sentiment they evoke in their poetry. In Sir Philip Sidney’s Renaissance poem, “Sonnet 31” he presents the subject of unrequited love through his love sick speaker. Likewise, Sylvia Plath in her modern poem, “Mad Girl’s Love Song” depicts a depressed and heartbroken woman incapable of distinguishing if her lover was real, which incorporates the poetic subjects of obsessive love and unrequited love. Although similar in poetic subject, the worldview in “Mad Girl 's Love Song” differs from the worldview held by the speaker in “Sonnet 31” because “Mad Girl 's Love Song” presented two worldviews one being ideal love and the other being unrequited love. Through the use of imagery, both Sylvia Plath and Sir Philip Sidney are able to convey a similar poetic subject, but the tones they set for their works delineate different worldviews on love.

Lastly these events are all horribly easy to give into, as previously stated we have only make our souls“brave enough” and it is already “ serried, seething, like a million ants” and so the simple act of giving in is as lazy as a sloth. He even alludes the the monsters of hell in the line “ among the jackals, panthers and chimerae” and the monsters of Earth “The monkeys, scorpions, vultures and other snakes” who walk among us and easily give into their sin and drag others down to their level. The very first line of this poem starts this idea off “Folly, error, sin and parsimony, Preoccupy our spirits and work on our bodies”, as to say that
