Andrew Marvel in “His Coy Mistress,” writes a monologue about a man wanting to have sex with a shy woman before marriage. The speaker believed that there is not enough time to go through the flirting and admiration stages with her, so they should fast forward to having sex. While both poets have a character in their poem that portray a controlling attitude, Browning focuses on the fate of the duchess who disobeys him while Marvel
To borrow the words of Tucker, “… Baudelaire 's intention was not to rhapsodize his mistresses as his forebears had done” (888). “Une Charogne” is an intricate anti-Petrarchan piece; Baudelaire not only mocks Petrarchan ideals of beauty, but he attacks the blason by making it his own and using the uncanny to highlight its flaws in dehumanizing women and reducing them to body parts and flesh. Baudelaire reminds readers that the reason his poem is unsettling is not only because it is about an aestheticized carcass, but because the conventions he borrows to describe the carcass, the very same ones used to describe women, are questionable and troubling. He uses Petrarchan conventions to implode its own system. By taking the blason to the extreme, he highlights its problems and showcases its true
When Juliet sees Romeo dead beside her, she tries to kiss his lips so she’s poisoned by the same poison as him but it doesn’t work so she stabs herself with the help of his dagger. This is a perfect example of fighting for true love, no matter how hard it
/ then love-devouring death do what he dare, / It is enough I may but call her mine” (2.6.6-8). Romeo didn’t think about the consequences, or even the future. He just wanted to marry her right away as fast as he could. So many times, Romeo and Juliet let their emotions get in the way of common sense while choosing between choices. It could be hate, where all they wanted at that point in time was to hurt someone or get revenge.
Here, Ophelia is describing an encounter with an unnamed man, who promised her that he would marry Ophelia if she had sex with him. However, the man did not marry her and instead told her that he would have been willing to married her if she didn’t have sex with him. In saying this, Ophelia doesn’t specifically mention Hamlet, but her song implies that she is describing a parallel between Ophelia’s relationship with Hamlet. Ophelia continues on in her song, saying that men are terrible when they want to be. During Ophelia’s poem, Gertrude and Claudius continue to comment on Ophelia’s insanity.
Hester having committed adultery and tries all what she can so as to ensure that she live of repentance and dignity.

This is ironic because by doing this Tybalt ends up killing Mercutio. He takes revenge for Mercutio, and kills Tybalt. This causes Romeo to get banished out of Verona, where he can't be together with Juliet . Later in the play, Juliet wakes up and finds out from Friar Lawrence that Romeo is dead. She decides to kill herself instead of running away.
Both poets present the speaker differently through the use of poetic devices. For example, the metaphysical conceit in The Flea begins when the speaker states ‘And in this flea, our two bloods mingled be’. (4) This metaphor suggests that the speaker believes the mixing of two bloods is similar to the consecration of marriage and this is the argument the speaker sets up to woo his lover. The speaker uses direct address when he says ‘how little that which thou deniest me’. (2) By using the determiner ‘little’ it shows how he is trying to convince his lover of the unimportance of sexual intercourse.
This then leads to Romeo coming back to Juliet. After Romeo gets word that Juliet is dead he rushes back to Juliet. Romeo buys poison, that will kill him, and brings it to Juliet's tomb to die with her. In the play Romeo tells Juliet he loves her than drinks the poison to die with his sweet Juliet. “Here’s to my love!

Juliet herself drank the sleeping potion when Romeo was on his way earlier than anticipated, whom bought poison upon hearing of her "death" , planning to kill himslef on her tomb alongside her. The friar 's inability to succesfully delivering the letter to Romeo stating that Juliet was alive was a gap that caused romeo to make his harsh decision, but it was too late once he got to the tomb. Upon killing Paris and himself with the poison, Romeo fell beside Juliet, whom stabbed herself once she awoke upon seeing Romeo dead before her eyes. Had Romeo and Juliet respected their families wishes, had they not gone into secrecy, had their relatives stayed out of their love, they wouldnt have blindly caused
This echos Friar Lawrence’s comments about the flower because the flower will strengthen you if you smell it but will kill you if you eat it. It has two very different effects just like Romeo made Juliet so angry and sad because he killed Tybalt, but at the same time he made her so happy and she loved him so much. Juliet convinces herself to support and forgive Romeo for killing her cousin by realizing that if Romeo hadn’t killed Tybalt then Tybalt would have killed Romeo. She decides that she would rather have Romeo alive and that Tybalt was the villain for trying to kill her husband. She forgives him because he was defending his own
