Hilda Doolittle and Edgar Poe are amazing writers yet two distinctive writers. Edgar Poe expresses about her outer beauty, yet Hilda Doolittle expresses her inner beauty, how Greece despises it.For instance, in the poem “To Helen “ by Edgar Poe it said “Thy hyacinth hair , thy classic face, Thy Naiad airs have brought me home”,the author used an alliteration with “hyacinth hair”,but he compared her hair to a flower and her face structure being elegant, gorgeous. Evenmore, “Naiads” are water spirits, said to be very beautiful just like his description of Helen. On the other hand, the other poem “Helen” by H.D., is a hatred poem. For example, in the third stanza it said“Thy beauty of cool feet, and slenderest knees”, H.D.
Sappho is confident since Aphrodite made Helen of Troy fall in love with Paris, Aphrodite could do the same generous wish for her. Sappho used her knowledge and experience from the Trojan War in her writings in such ways that recognize her as the esteemed poet she is known to
The dual suicides from both the lovers portray the ultimate expression of their undying love for each other. Only through death may each be happily reunited and maintain the extensive bond between them. The clash between love versus hate is especially represented during Romeo and Juliets first meeting. Once Juliet learns of Romeos lineage, she says, my only love sprung from my only hate (I, v, 139). This shows her families hate brought about her love; the two opposing forces are vital to each other and are ever so knotted.
The poem “My Love for You is so Embarrassingly” by Todd Boss is a poem about love and the whirlwind of feelings you get when experiencing it.

The title may cause confusion; why would love be so embarrassing? Throughout the poem he uses several metaphors ultimately explaining it. Boss’s love is so grand; he is so infatuated that it is embarrassing.
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
Monsieur Lantin and his lady had the perfect marriage, falling deeper in love with one another by each passing day. The rising theme of irony, however, proves that appearance can overshadow reality. It creates tension between an intended meaning and a literal statement, used as a form of dry humour to provoke the reader. Throughout his short story, The False Gems, Guy de Maupassant emphasizes several forms of irony to display the universal theme of deviousness. Monsieur Lantin’s lady was thought to be an idyllic wife, but readers soon found out that the love between the married was an illusion.
Both works share a similarity in how they make an unremarked woman their focus, while at same time professing admiration for her. For instance, in Sonnet 130 lines 1-2 Shakespeare states "My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips' red". Therefore, he is boldly declaring that his mistress eyes are nothing extraordinary in comparison to the sun, which shines so brightly. While her lips are an unappealing shade of red. 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.

F. Scott Fitzgerald, writer of the novel “The Great Gatsby” , and E.E. Cummings, writer of the poem “anyone lived in a pretty how town,” convey similar themes of love and carelessness in their works through the use of diction, imagery and symbolism. Both selections are about individuals that are in love and reveal the power it has on character, life and actions. “The Great Gatsby” uses a unique diction within the text that contributes to the theme of love and carelessness. The characters Daisy and Tom portrayed
Claudio fell in love with Hero right when he laid his eyes upon her. Claudio claims, “In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that I ever looked on (I.i.183-184).” This example shows that Claudio fell in love with her looks, not her personality. Another reason for their unrealistic relationship is Hero fakes her death after being accused of cheating. Shakespeare wrote, “Done to death by slanderous tongues, was the Hero that here lies. Death, in guerdon of her wrongs, gives her fame which never dies.
Throughout the novel, Frankenstein describes William as a beautiful child who "inspire[s] the tenderest affection" (chapter 1). On the contrary, Frankenstein describes the Creature as "hideous," and rejects it because of its ugliness (chapter IV). Elizabeth describes William in her letter as a "sweet laughing blue eye[d]" and have "curling hair" as well as who "already had one or two little wives" (chapter VI). The fact that William is described in the same paragraph, as beautiful and has two wives suggest that because of his beauty he has companions. The Creature seeks a female companion but, because of his ugliness, he could achieve.
