Concurring, The Iliad is a poem that indicated Achilles has an incredible love to his mother and his dear fellowship with Patroclus and Briseis. Hector is a genuine patriot. As indicated by a few faultfinders he is more human than Achilles (Homer, Iliad 102). He lover his country in particular and he is prepared to sacrifice his life for the interest of country individuals. He demonstrates his deep love towards country through his refusal to take wine from his mother who attempted to revive her son with wine.
“To My Dear and Loving Husband” written by Anne Bradstreet expressed her affection and unconditional love for her husband. This poem was written when her husband was away on business trip to England. Bradstreet put her feeling and how profoundly she misses him in every sentences of the poem. She values their love more than any earthly riches and views that as a sign of spiritual union and salvation, rather than as something profane or lowly. Unlike other contemporary Puritan women writers, Bradstreet focuses on how she rejoices and appreciates her ordinary life instead of religious conversion.
‘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
The enjambment used throughout the poem also emphasises the idea of love withstanding the obstacle that is time and time passing by. This line endorses the idea that love will triumph any challenge even time. However, love here can also present love as an illusion. The effigies are there to give the people a nice final memory of them and the ‘love’ is not eternal. The line “what will survive of us is love” is an example of where Larkin’s use of a trochaic tetrameter accentuates the love and emotions the couple had while they were
Homer’s Odyssey sends a powerful message detailing the power a married man or women can have. Homer writes, "There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends." (Murray, Homer, Odyssey 6.175-185). In Amours, Ovid describes love as a forum for his poems, displaying the importance of affection. In Book I of the Elegy, Ovid is writing about touches on warmth, “Love come late will not fill your song” (Kline, Ovid, Amores 1.7:1-26).
People would remark that love is indicating happiness or gratefulness but never state the fact that love can even be overpowering and blinding. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a tale about a teenager who has been fond of his “love” Rosaline until he stumbles upon a girl, who is known to be Juliet. Romeo and Juliet would do anything to be together and would show affection that one loves more than the other such as death. Love can best be described as blinding and jokingful. Love has always been known to give happiness and never been brought up how love can be blinding.
Being separated for Romeo and Juliet only makes their connection fow stronger. In William Shakespeare 's Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the two star-crossed lovers portray their love by protecting each other at any cost, choosing one another above all else, and marrying as soon as possible. For Romeo and Juliet, it’s important for them to protect each other at any cost. Romeo had just been banished for killing Tybalt, and Nurse is talking poorly of Romeo, but Juliet won’t stand for it, “Blistered be thy tongue for such a wish! He was not born to shame.
Instead of describing feelings of extreme loss and emptiness, he details the idea that him and his lover, Annabel Lee, are not truly separated, and never will be. __________________ _______________transition sentence_____________________________________. Due to the speaker’s everlasting love for Annabel Lee, Edgar Allen Poe uses various poetic devices and sound imagery to express how the speaker and his lover can never be truly separated. The love between Annabel Lee and the speaker is unassailable. Not only is it certain, it’s infrangible.
The speaker mentions becoming selfless due to love and how love can endure through complications. Comparatively, the song and the poem Trials, by Frank Mandarano are similar due to both texts revealing how love endures hardships. Trails details love overcoming all obstacles, announcing, “inside we get though because of something special we share.” The speaker in I Will Always Love You divulges how even through impediments a couples love will endure, stating, “I’ll think of you every step of the way.” In the song, the speaker expresses the sacrifices they withstand for the person they love, declaring, “if I should stay I would only be in your way.” However, they possess no animosity and desire the best for the other person, stating, “I wish to you joy.” Through those two quotes, Whitney Houston shows us that if a person puts themself second when they love an individual and the focus is not on them, hardships become
