When describing the ways in which she loved her husband, Browning declares, “I love thee freely, as men strive for right / I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.” By repeating “I love thee” multiple times through these lines, Browning was able to powerfully show how their love was liberating and wholesome with her use of the phrases “as men strive for right” and “as they turn from praise.” Also, Browning utilizes iambic pentameter throughout her poem including her line stating, “I shall but love thee better after death” As a result of the iambic pentameter, the words which stress is placed on include “love”, “better”, and “death”; consequently, Browning is able to portray her message that she would love her dear Robert in the afterlife with even more
