Both pieces are triggered by love, more specifically unrequited love, yet the general tone has an ironic detachment to some degree.

Even though she uses this original approach to a love poem she is still able to describe the importance of love.

One of the biggest poetic techniques that Edna uses in her poem “Love is not all” is structure. The structure of Edna’s poem is an English Style Sonnet.
Ichabod was quiet and meek, while Brom was loud and bold. All these relationships were great examples of the strong feeling in books and poem written in that time. After evaluating the different courtships and their results, we have come to a conclusion that all these men are very different, yet very alike.
