They claim that Katherine develops affections of appreciation and respect for Petruchio as the play goes on. Moreover, they associate Katherine’s newfound amiability and endearment to her recognition of Petruchio 's hardwork in providing for her and improving her personality. In fact, throughout the play, Katherine subtly conveys her love through slight gestures of devotion, finally manifesting all of her care for Petruchio in her final speech. After Bianca and the Widow refuse to return to their husbands in Act 5 Scene 2, Katherine’s begins her monologue, saying, “Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, thy head, thy sovereign.

Nostalgia is a conspicuous subject seen throughout the poem. "My sister and I were in love with meema's Indian blanket" The begining of her evocative and romantic tone is arrayed when she introduces the quilt. The use of past tense "were in love" suggest the poet's state of nostalgia of her childhood because of how she and her sibling so innocently and lovlingly admire the quilt that poses an almost foreign and mystical thing to them.

Now as an adult, she knows all the outcomes of her past dreams, but loves to remember how charmingly clueless she was, just like most children are.

However, in line 27, when she asks her husband to kiss her poem if he finds it, she is also acknowledging her work as a part of herself that will remain with him even when she is gone. Both Bradstreet’s biological and artistic legacy are then intrinsically connected. “These O protect” (l. 24) seems to be directed to her biological children, nevertheless, the author could also mean the protection of her literary children (with her references to “this verse” [l. 25] and “this paper” [l.

Then two performers decided to play a game with him, wherein they would recite a supposedly romantic love speech, both declaring their love for the same person (the audience’s member), and as they recited the poem they would constantly adhere random words, again all thought by the audience, this created a playful, ludicrous swirl to the speech’s meaning.
