Discuss the presentation of love in Larkin’s Arundel Tomb The poem, Arundel Tomb, written by Philip Larkin explores the theme of love and how at times can be ambiguous. A notable example of this is in the first line of stanza one, it says “their faces blurred”. This could be symbolic of their universal love.

Very Original (A Critique of Love and Lust on Three Classic Renaissance Poems) The world is full of inspiration: towering waterfalls, unexplored forests, and sprawling night skies seem to have been created for the specific purpose of providing a muse for writers. Yet, despite all the wonders the world provides, mankind tends to focus on one thing in the vast majority of literature - romance. In the modern era, a piece of media cannot seem to exist unless it contains some sort of romantic plot or subplot or both.
Alighieri as a child excelled in his studies and offered much to the world of philosophy, yet preferred poetry to his studies. " Kind star or something better has given me that gift, I not abuse it. “ (Alighieri, Canto 26).

Algernon Charles Swinburne’s poem, “A Ballad of Dreamland” presents the world of dreams as an escape from the sadness of his real life. The poem begins with the speaker describing the lengths to which he would go to hide his heart from the world. The speaker goes on to show his appreciation for dreams as they allow him to avoid the pain of life and love, at least temporarily. The speaker acknowledges, at the end of every stanza, that something always manages to force him out of his dreams without his consent. Swinburne uses imagery to paint the world of dreams as safe and beautiful.
For this second tercet, it was about philosophers or scholars given that he labelled the men as “wise men”. This tercet may suggest that even though these philosophers knew their end was getting nearer, but the poet exhorted that these philosophers should not give up without achieving their dreams. This was shown in line five “Because their words had forked no lightning they”, the philosophers was usually known for their works or words and since their words did not make a big influence on this world, they should not die silently. In addition, for the last line of the tercet, the poet repeated the line “Do not go gentle…” to emphasize that they should not give up easily without making a change in this world or making their name known to the whole world.
This poem is a love poem; however, it is more about an unrequited love and infatuation with the idea of Celia rather than being a true representation of true love. The poem, “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning,” written by John Donne begins to show a better representation of true love.

Another rhetorical device that was made clear in this song is parallelism. Jack repeats many words and beginnings of phrases throughout the entire song. This is shown in the lines, “The love, the love, the love that I gave…”, “I wanna get better, better, better,”, and “I didn’t know I was lonely… I didn’t
This brings one to the ending in which both Will and Jim die. Ben makes the point that the story wouldn’t be fun if it all ended happily and perfectly. There’s some merit to this, but overall the audience does want a happy ending. It might have been fun to watch the two men plan their duel only for the discovery of the oil beneath Mulch to interrupt their plan or for Ben to stop them perhaps revealing another twist. It’s a creative choice, but it doesn’t feel fully satisfying given how much the audience cares about these characters.
The sestet ends the poem with a tone that honors the man’s life. Discussing the memories and characteristics of Doug allows the mood to become bittersweet. He is gone, but his suffering has ended. The use of Iambic Pentameter forced me to write the poem in a rhythm that, at first, I did not enjoy, but I slowly began to enjoy the beauty that is incorporated with the meter. The rhythm of unstressed and stressed added to the overall feel of the sonnet.
