How Do I Love Thee – Elizabeth Barrett Browning interprets the meaning, tone, and overall effect of a poem How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barret Browning is an iconic and powerful love poem. The work is part of Sonnets from the Portuguese, a collection of poems that Elizabeth Browning wrote for her husband, poet Robert Browning. It is a passionate declaration of love from one who is in love, which has resonates with readers through history because of the rawness and familiarity of its feelings. Throughout the text, the speaker uses a diverse array of literary techniques to demonstrate the multidimensional nature of their love towards a lover.

The sacred consciousness of the “huge trusted power” which “moves in the muscle of the world/ In continual creation” (“A Chorus”) lights up the experiences of many of the poems in Moments of Grace and Celebrations and Elegies.

William Wordsworth’s poem, ‘She Was a Phantom of Delight’, tells the story of a woman’s striking beauty as observed by the man who loves her and a man’s personal discovery of what makes a woman truly beautiful.

To John Keats, beauty stands as the spirit of life and art. It is the predominating force of his poetry from the early Endymion to his last poem Hyperion: A Vision. At the very beginning of Endymion, he declares: A thing of Beauty is a joy forever/ It’s loveliness increases. Tagore’s romanticism and his glorification of love appear as a continuation of Valmiki tradition, the deep understanding of the beauty and wealth of Mother Earth and Nature. His love of nature and world, love of man and love of God, are the accents of keen awareness of beauty, acute apprehension of truth and earnest interest of the cosmic infinite whole.
