“Sonnet 89” offers a mature and raw point of view that is not found in “Sonnet 75,” and this helps get across the worldview of immortal love. Furthermore, though the symbols in “Sonnet 75” were well appreciated because they made the poem more complex and interesting, Neruda used every quatrain and tercet to bring to life this endless love he feels for his lover. He adds a form to realism in the way he writes his sonnet, and this in turn, makes the poem much more relatable than “Sonnet
Nonetheless, Yeats named or “number him” in the poem because “He, too”, repeated twice, was a mark of power for the transformation the uprising caused, which “has been changed in his turn”.

Despite the acceptance and the love shown in this poem, we cannot deny that there is also a sense of bitterness throughout. Death is also presented as something which is incredibly emotional. Jonson uses a variety of structural techniques to show this. In the first quatrain Jonson seems to accept the death of his son, in the second, we see him trying to convince himself that he went some place better, and by the third quatrain he seems to have a bleak outlook on the future. This structural progression we see, suggests that Jonson is struggling with his emotions and perhaps becoming overwhelmed with it all.
Drawing the readers’ into the poem with a whimsical and rather comical dialogue between the speaker and Death. Amidst the interchange, the speaker taunts and teases Death, telling him that he should not be proud and vain, especially in view of his ultimate demise. The sonnet’s poetic form and powerful literary elements add to the playful dialogue giving it its light and humorous tone. Arresting allusions to Christ’s victory over Death at his second coming, reveals to the reader the true theme of the poem.

identity;additionally, twelve means the“cosmic order and salvation” that Yeats as an artist tries to bring for his nation (232-4). Yeats’s combination seems meaningful as the fusion of five, twelve and one happens in his poem[(12*5) -1=59]. He is preoccupied with an image of a modern man who is “disillusioned due to mechanization” and lives in an age where “romances were coming to an end and people were getting brutal” (Azam 2). Disillusioned as a modern man and witnessed the “lack of harmony and strength in modern culture, Yeats [have] tried torevive the ancient spells and chant to bring unity and a spirit of integrationin moderncivilization torn by conflicts and dissensions” (ibid. ).He tries to be the prophetic poet whocan make sixty out
Furthermore, in stanza two the idea that Tagore does not fear, but embraces death is highlighted in the relationship between him and death. Tagore creates a lexical field of romance almost suggesting death is trying to “woo” him. This presents the idea that Tagore may feel a desire towards death, however Tagore goes on to convey the idea that he could not fall for something as coy as death. This suggests Tagore feels there should be a sense of pride in death, something he strongly desires. All of these factors show that Tagore feels bold, assured and not afraid of
