Amy Winehouse’s, You Know I’m No Good, she clearly states that she is the toxic one in the relationship and that even though she is an adulterer, she still longs for her partner.

Throughout history, adversity has repeated both of the effects many times, such as: in Horace’s life, the biblical story of Joseph, the War of 1812, during the Great Depression and throughout World War II.
All of her poems had underlying meanings such as death or appreciation.

In Duffy’s free verse, dramatic monologue poem ‘Havisham’ cacophony and juxtaposition are employed in the opening phrase ‘beloved sweetheart bastard’. The juxtaposition between the descriptive adjective ‘beloved’ and the noun ‘sweetheart’ and the profane noun ‘bastard’ show the change in the narrator’s attitude towards the relationship. It also conveys the unstable mental state of Havisham and exposes her uncertainty and ambivalence. The cacophony also shows the narrators anger directed towards this unnamed ‘bastard’; this anger has replaced what we can infer to be affection from metonymical phrases such as ‘a white veil’ and ‘honeymoon’ Cacophony is also used in the last stanza coupled with half rhyme. Duffy uses a series of words - ‘awake, hate, face, cake, and break’ – to convey the mood of the poem.
Idealistic Brutus misplaces his trust on his army and the conspirators. Manipulated, Brutus joins into the conspiracy without knowing the hidden intentions.
