Poems The poems “To the Virgins to make much of time” ,“Valediction: Forbidding mourning” and “To His Coy mistress” are poems about love. A few of them I would have to say relate to a realistic view of love like the poems “To His Coy Mistress” and Valediction: Forbidding mourning”.

There are multiple line that show this realistic view in love and there's some lines that oppose that it is a realistic view on love.

Rostand enlightens his audience by accentuating that the true nature of a person lays in their actions and intentions not aesthetics. Firstly, Rostand encompasses symbolism highlight the adaptation of Cyrano and De Guiche.
Which is that beauty comes from within. His purpose is teaching the poet that in order to create true and inspiring art he must look deep inside of himself. He starts to develop this idea with an extended metaphor as he explains that even if you have come to your lowest point in life “you still have your childhood, that jewel beyond all price, that treasure house of memories” (3) to inspire you and give you life again.

Groundling, where fore art thou groundling. In the epitaph, “My Love for You Is So Embarrassingly” by Todd Boss, the speaker is stuck in an internal ponder between his head and his heart. The title alone emphasizes how grand his love is for the auditor. Then, as the poem progresses he makes a point to show how devotion is taken for granted.

The poem “My Love for You is so Embarrassingly” by Todd Boss is a poem about love and the whirlwind of feelings you get when experiencing it.

When they believed in something, they believed in it hard. For instance, in the poem, “To my dear and loving husband” by Anne Bradstreet she states, “ My love is such that rivers cannot quench”.

He wants something meaningful and special. To me, this is why he is so hesitant of finding love, because he is afraid that he will settle for something less than what a real relationship is supposed to be worth. “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T. S. Eliot is indeed a poem written with great intelligence. Using literary devices such as allusion and imagery helps express the true meaning with much detail and depth. From my understanding, J. Alfred Prufrock is a man that is full of regret, wishing that he would have actually done certain things while he had time, and wishing that he could have found love.
