She explains that love itself is eternal, and when you love someone just for the sake reason of love, then your love will be for eternity as well. She starts of the poem with the lines, "If thou must love me, let it be for nought Except for love's sake only…" She starts off the poem with a firm conviction that her significant other must love her for no other reason but for “love’s sake only”. Tina (2013) mentioned that, “She argues that if there is a particular reason for loving someone, then a change in circumstances can remove the reason and destroy the love. One interesting interpretation is that she is cleverly smothering Robert through her poetry and language to test that he truly loves her.” All of her poems from the Sonnet of the Portuguese are ways to express her feelings to her husband, Robert Browning. In Sonnet 14, she tells Robert Browning how he must love her.
The author utilizes many poetic devices like romantic diction, for example no matter where any lover goes their counter part is a hairs breath away. The author structure the poem this way to express that speaker love is no normal love. The first 3 stanzas the author talks of as brave men pass away they peaceful let their souls go. Some of their friends and family are complacent with however, some are not and are powerless to stop it. In return they weep for the lost ones and pray for the journey to easy and great for them.
This shows us that he could only see so much that his eyes are weakened and old. However, in the poem, Cyrano De Bergerac the author uses loaded diction alongside vivid imagery to portray the main idea. The author emphasizes inner beauty by using terms like “ Live for I love you”. Despite this quote not having a relevant meaning towards the approach of saying that love is eternal. Knowing that Cyrano loves her to his heart, he dies at the end, still cherishes his love within the heart of
“Love is when the other person 's happiness is more important than your own”-H Jackson Brown Jr.This idea exhibits the importance you give towards someone’s love is more necessary than yours. In the book Cyrano de Bergerac, Cyrano tries to demonstrate the love between him and Roxane by the use of poems and using Christian as an assistant. For example, “A little longer she is always here”. We can see that the quote is demonstrating the impatient approach towards love in within someone increases when beauty does not surround you.Despite this story using a various approach towards manipulating us to the theme, the poem uses literary and symbolic devices to exhibit the poet 's life. However, in the poem, the poet uses the ocean to show that all of his emotions are mixed to form one big vast area.
Romance comes in all different forms and sizes, and Calbert understands that along with these she apprends why people fall in and out of love. Falling in love has a sense of vulnerability that requires taking risks that people are “willing to fail, / why we will still let ourselves fall in love,” in order to sustain real love. Calbert ends her poem with listing the romances with her husband and vows, “knowing nothing other than [their] love” because that is all that matters to her

Love and a Question, a shattering love, by Robert Frost is a poem that shows a love that seems so perfect it can´t be ruined in a matter of time. The poem, based on its title, gives a perspective of the speaker as a devoted lover with an important question for his bride. To the reader it might seem as love story, but in depth it is a story of how a couple became strange to each other. Others might think it is dedicated to Robert Frost’s wife, Eleanor Miriam White, one of Frost’s major poetic inspirations until her death in 1938. As the poem progresses the speaker and his bride separate from each other questioning their love.
Vincent Millay, through her poem, “Love is not all” stands the test of time in poetry. Millay introduces a debate through her topic and theme of the story, “love is not all” which sparks debate and emotions on the relationships based on love. Millay gives the full details on the physical traits of survival which cannot be obtained by love. The tone of the poem is a bitter tone as she explains what love is about and what it is not. Millay’s poem uses the image to illustrate how one loves someone and the reader gets to know the truth about love (St. Vincent n.p).
(Song of Solomon 8:6-7) Above is bible verse about Love. Love is a word that many have attempted to define. For instance, Dictionary.com defines Love as “a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person or a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.” As humans, we all have an intense desire to be loved and nurtured by another. It is believed that the secret to a happy life is when we know that we are loved. With references from Carol Travis’s article “Women As Love’s Experts and Love’s Victims” I wish to expound on how gender plays a part in a relationship, what Tavris describes as the notion of "woman as intimacy expert" as a stereotype, how this stereotype affect gender role, behavior and problems experienced by men and women in their personal relationships.
While the couple’s love in the poem according to the wife is “forever and forever and forever,” Ezra Pound’s “River Merchant’s Wife: A letter” uses imagery, form of free verse, and nonlinear pace between time and content to showcase how love can be deceiving; by ushering in a matter of subordination that begins to define your life. When love is classified as a forever and ever concept, it can blind many people into thinking there are no fallbacks. Love can never truly be love when one of the partners involved are forced into it. Pound touches on this fact throughout the poem with the use of imagery not only through recurring symbols, but also with vivid images of the environment. In the first line of the poem Pound mentions the front gate of the wife’s as a sort of playground for her, a sanctuary so to speak.
