This poetry is the glorious one that expresses the unspoken feelings of someone who have to separate from the lover into a love letter. Undoubtedly, it is a free verse poetry because it does not have a usual rhyme and a rule for stressed and unstressed syllables in the word each a line. It represents the story by using a technique of figurative language, such as symbolism to express the speaker 's feelings and the behaviors through the object, and imagery to reveal the picture of the nature. Furthermore, this poetry also reveals the viewpoint of love in a stage of living since a puppy love, the beginning of marriage life, a life after marriage, and a marriage life without the spouse. The viewpoint of love in a childhood is an innocent and mirthful love.
Rilke acknowledges and thanks Kappus for putting trust in him by sending him the letter. Rilke’s final piece of advice for Kappus is “to keep growing, silently and earnestly” and to stop “looking outside and waiting for outside answers” (2). Rilke reiterates that to write beautiful poems and answer questions, you have to dig deep in your soul to find the answers. As a wrap up to the letter, Rilke connects with Kappus by acknowledging the fact that they both had the same professor and asks Kappus to thank Professor Horacek for thinking of him (2). Finally, Rilke reveals his humble attitude by saying, “I thank you once more for your questions and sincere trust, of which, by answering as honestly as I can, I have tried to make myself a little worthier than I as a stranger, really am” (2).
The third stanza opens with endearing words from the speaker. The two lovers stand so closely that their respective faces are reflected in each others eyes.

They are not afraid of separation or break up of their "relation, because" 'what ever dyes, was not mixt equality '.

Rather than Socrates serving as a mentor or challenger, he is serving as Right’s equal. In the end, his masculinity prevented direct displays of male affection but the mutual admiration that these men shared is clear when Right said: “I know you love me, man. I love you too” (207). Mosley is concluding the portrayal of this third type of male relationship by saying that black men do not have to be overtly affectionate to show their love, care, and compassion for one
‘Annabel Lee’ by Edgar Allan Poe is an eminently beautiful yet tragic poem centred around the theme of a forbidden love between two people, and the many obstacles that they overcome in order to be together. At the same time the poem relates back to a man’s undying love for his wife in which even death is unable to hinder. From the beginning of the poem, I realized Poe to be an articulate person who has a beautiful way with words, as he describes the origin of his love story between himself and Annabel Lee. This was shown in Stanza 1 where I identified him to be a kind and doting person, as he continues to talk about a maiden from the kingdom by the sea whom only wished to love and be loved by Poe. As this was written by Poe and shown from
How do you respond to her poems? My response is happy to Bradstreet’s story. I am happy that she was strong enough to stand up to men and do what she loves, writing. She didn’t need a man’s approval to write and talk about issues she felt needed to be discussed. Her poems are interesting to read, too.
