Love is a funny thing, it doesn’t always turn out the way we want it too and we can’t choose who we love. The main theme of James Baldwin’s story “Giovanni’s Room” is that love is difficult, scary, and not always what you expect. Although many people thrive on the love they feel for someone, David finds it to be a terrifying and confusing thing. In “Giovanni’s Room” David is reflecting on how he found love when he less expected it and was afraid, saddened, and even a little ashamed by it.
This passage explains love and emotional significance in the war . Although the small role of women in The things they carried ,it is an importance threw out the book.

“My brothers frowned. You are a Luna, they chanted in unison, you are to be a farmer-priest for mother!” (26) Even though Toni had a longing for his brothers, they denied Toni because he was greatly induced into his mother’s expectations. Andrew and Eugene had decided to walk the path of their father, and in response Antonio desired to as well. Along with this desire, Maria would lose influence over Toni. Now Toni faces pressure as the only child who can fulfill his mother’s legacy. Toni yet again is still facing the conflict weighed down not only by his parents but his brothers as well. The result of confronting this conflict is the “Darkness of my dream” said by Antonio. In one case it sets the image more of a nightmare than a dream. In another context the darkness is Toni’s blurry vision of the path he will take in
In A Ritual to Read to Each Other, William Stafford speaks about a different kind of love than in Shakespeare’s sonnet. The love Stafford describes isn’t romantic, rather it is built on the fragile communication we have with the people around us. Stafford emphasizes the love of humanity, and begins his poem by pointing out how desperately bereft we are of this kind of empathy today. In the second stanza Stafford talks about the emptiness that exists between us. According to the poem we’ve become
Rousseau is right, there is no love in the state of nature. Love is about developing relationships but in the condition of human beings before society, the most pure form of society had no relationships, no feelings, thus no love.
In “Bedecked”, Redel raises attention about the different approaches to parenting in a situation when a parent’s son is more flamboyant than society would deem acceptable. Redel can handle the criticism and “other mothers looking”, but wanted none of it to change the purity of how her son “loves a beautiful thing not for what it means- / this way or that”(16-17). She ends her poem by asking readers if their “heart was ever once that brave”, for going against social norms and not confining to them (21-20). In addition to the older woman and younger man double standard, Calbert's “In Praise of My Young Husband” lists examples of the world’s different romances to note that there is not just one single type: “young lovers like to drink too much / and make a drunken, careless love, / why couples always cook so much” (19-22). 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
Isabella is Keats’ sixth longest poem and it is important to prove him that he has the quality of writing in a new, modern way and it is published in 1820. He is one of the most important poets of nature writing and emphasizes his love toward nature which is also reflected to be female. He also deals the issue of women and nature in his poem Isabella and in Lamia. Keats’ Isabella, like Lamia, is a poem expressing the tragedy of love but it contrasts two ways of seeing: sentiment and reason. In both poems a sympathetic but weak pair of lovers is destroyed by their love. But Isabella and lamia are not written at the same time. Isabella is completed in April 1818 and Lamia in September 1819. There is
There are many themes shown throughout the book Night. However, I chose to focus on the theme," The silence of God and the world empowers evil." This theme is represented multiple times in the story. For example on page 65 it says, "For God's sake, where is God?" (Wiesel 65). This specific piece of text evidence was quoted while the young child was being hung/killed. I feel like it really shows that if God stays silent, the evil could do whatver they wanted too. Another way evil could be brought to higher power, was the silence of people. I think the silence of the world empowers the Nazis, more than the silence of God. On page 32 it states, "How was it possible that men,women, and children were being burned and that the world kept silent?"

From the beginning, children are taught to fear the concept of death. Most people spend their lives fearing death, but it’s not death that they are afraid of. It is part of nature to die, and our minds know that, what scares most people is the thought of death before they have had time to accomplish what they want in life. In “When I Have Fears That I May Cease to Be,” John Keats put into words how people feel about dying before they have been successful in whatever mission they have set forth for themselves. His poem touches the reality of people’s feelings though imagery and figurative language.
The “cloud”—amorphous and obstructing—cuts into the scene, as well as the poem, with a sudden violence, in order to block the image of “Love’s moon”. The cloud itself cannot have definite dimensions, as it exists to only hide the moon, casting the speaker of the poem, his love and the cloud itself in a continuous darkness. It is in this darkness that the speaker of the poem finds his own perception and experiences clouded, indicating his blind submission to erotic love in lieu of a more illuminating, comprehensive “Love”.
“What does it matter that my love could not keep her” he is worrying about the shattered night when she is not with him. “This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance. My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her” Here, the writer seemed to him that someone is singing in a distance. His brain stopped missing her but his soul didn’t.
