  • Neruda's Boundary Of Love
    686 words
    Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XLIV "You Must Know That I Do Not Love And That I Love You" clearly illustrates that love has two sides. Neruda uses the text as an example throughout his poem to explain that love has two sides. These two sides are that he loves and that he does not love. This is explained through Neruda's words: You must know that I do not love and that I love you, because everything alive has its two sides; a word is one wing of silence, fire has its cold half. (107) This statement separ...

    Compare And Contrast Essay In William Shakespeare's Sonnet 130 and Christopher Marlowe's The Passionate Shepherd To His Love, the themes of unconditional love, opulent treasures, and vivid imagery are all conveyed throughout the poems but through different point of views.

  • Relevant Theme To The Poem Annabell Lee
    483 words
    In the poem Annabell Lee the poet Edgar Allen Poe brings out the theme that true love will never die. This is a poem that is timely in its relevance. There are few people who ever find true love. But for the people who do find perfect love, the love for their mate, the love for their companion does not die with that person. To Poe this poem had a great deal of relevance because Poe wrote this poem about how he felt after the loss of his dear wife. In this poem, the fact that true love never dies...

  • Sincere Love Poem To Her Husband
    1,839 words
    Literature, unlike a more exacting subject such as math, is open to several interpretations. There are no right or wrong answers - - just varying theories. The poem "To My Dear and Loving Husband" by Anne Bradstreet is such a case. The poem is interpreted differently by different people, however two theories appear most evident. On a literal level there is a sincere meaning found in the poem. There is suitable evidence that support Bradstreet's sincere love, such as metaphors used, in addition t...

    The human heart not only supplies life but it also represents feelings and emotions. In the Desert uses intense imagery to paint a vivid picture while also using point of view and symbolism to send a message about human emotion and feelings.

  • Opening Lines Of The Poem The Speaker
    773 words
    Sex in Poetry Although Marvell's To His Coy Mistress and Marlowe's The Passionate Shepherd to His Love share many similarities and differences, both men have one basic purpose for their poems, to talk the women into being their loves using promises of beautiful and mostly unattainable things. Andrew Marvell's To His Coy Mistress is one of the era's most famous expressions of the carpe diem motif. The speaker attempts to persuade his mistress into having sex with him. The speaker seems very frust...
  • Love Of The Two Lovers
    523 words
    Donne John. The Canonization. Twentieth Century Views: John Donne. Ed. Helen Gardner. Englewood Cliffs, N.J. Prentice - Hall, INC., 1962 Brooks finds the poem a parody of Christian sainthood taking the major themes of the poem religion and love very seriously and using them in an inevitable paradox. The person to whom Donne speaks in the beginning is a friend who epitomizes the world which the lovers have renounced. A world in which their love may seem most absurd, but cares little for the wars ...
  • Red Rose By Robert Burns
    821 words
    Love can be described as having genuine affection towards someone. Whether it be a family member or your soulmate, love comes in many shapes and forms. Love is also defined as timeless and infinite. In the poem "A Red, Red Rose" by Robert Burns, there is many connotations about love. Throughout the poem the speaker symbolizes his love for someone. He uses various metaphors to get his point across about how he feels about this particular person. However, what makes this poem differ from other com...
  • Forbidding Mourning By John Donne
    612 words
    A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning and The Sunne Rising To say that Blake and Donne do not write uplifting poetry is a great injustice to their works. Although some of their poems discuss themes of depressing nature, on a wider scale both Blake and Donne write poetry which is not only uplifting but also inspiring and extremely worthwhile to read. The two main themes covered by these two writers are love and death. The poems which use love as the main theme inspire the reader and offer hope that ...
  • Shepherd The Poem
    678 words
    Love The two poems written by Raleigh and Marlowe are interesting. Marlowe's poem, The Passionate Shepherd to His Love, basically propositions a woman to sleep with a man, where Raleigh's, The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd, responds negatively. Marlowe's poem is a Shepherd asking a nymph for favors. Raleigh responds, saying no. The two poems follow each other closely, and refer to the same subjects. The big difference in the poems is that Marlowe's poem is not realistic, whereas Raleigh's is. Th...
  • Poem About A Relationship To A Poem
    712 words
    Apology for Impatience for Gloria. On first reading, this poem seems quite incomprehensible. Out of context, the poem appears to be about love and relationships. Apology for Impatience was written in 1963 (wife dead) and it was written for Gloria, his wife. Dawe rarely uses a first person persona and it is through his use of the first person persona and the fact that it was written for his wife, that leads me to believe that Dawe was not just making a comment on love, but on his love for Gloria....
  • Sad Poem
    497 words
    Saddest Poem Tow weeks ago one of my classmates has presented a poem from his culture, and I am sure that it's a Latin culture. The poem is called "Saddest Poem" written by Pablo Neruda who is as I understood one of the most famous Latinos poet. This poem was translated to English, even though it didn't lose its original structure. No one can argue about the main idea of this poem that it's a sad poem and we can clearly see that from the title. Neruda uses many of the poetry techniques to comple...
  • Hall's Poem
    576 words
    The poems that are depicted in the book by Hall and the book by Kenyon are different in their topics and expression of their ideas. Though these poets seem to be different in their work; they both seem to share a common thread. That thread is the love that Hall and Kenyon have for each other. This is shown in the poem "Alone for a Week" by Jane Kenyon and an untitled poem from pg. 11 of Donald Hall "Without". Though Kenyon's poem deals with more of a feeling of loneliness and yearning for the re...
  • Cyrano's Love For Roxanne
    414 words
    In the play of Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, many forms of love are shown through each character. Cyrano, Christian, Roxanne, Le Bret, De Guiche, soldiers, and Rage neau are characters that showed their love for someone who they love. Also loves have many different significant meaning in my mind. Love is something so strong that it would alter people's action. Cyrano's love for Roxanne was so deep that he would do anything just to make Roxanne happy. Even if that means helping Christian ...
  • Poem About Love
    265 words
    "I love you, because in my thousand and one nights of dreams, I never once dreamed of you". As most typical love poems start, all of them start with similes of live and what one would do for the satisfaction for love. Luis Lorens Torres wrote this poem about love because he must have been in love. This poem is very descriptive and would be difficult to make up if Torres was not in love. "I looked down paths that traveled from afar, but if it was never you I expected". Looking back at Luis Lorens...
  • Reflection In A Poem Of One's Love

    "My Mistress's Eyes" is a poem written by William Shakespeare about the love towards an imperfect woman. This poem is also known as Sonnet 130, which is one of Shakespeare's many poems.

In this poem, Shakespeare explains that although his mistress is imperfect, he finds his love special and rare. With that understood, the reader can focus on some important details of this poem: theme...
  • Gibran's Poems

    In the poems "On Love" and "On Marriage", from the best-selling book, The Prophet, the author, Kahlil Gibran, uses different links to connect his poems. In the poems "On Love" and "On Marriage", Kahlil Gibran uses the links of personification, similes and imagery. Personification is a very significant link in these two poems. The link of personification is used effectively in both of Kahlil Gibran's poems. In the poem "On Love", Gibran focuses on the aspect of love and using it to explain his op...
  • Poem His Profound Love For His Son
    864 words
    In several of the literary works of the English Renaissance Period, we can identify love as the main theme. Apparently, love influenced and inspired many authors and poets to create intense pieces of literature that are full of overwhelming emotions. These emotions (specifically love-related emotions) can be represented either by a man who has just fallen in love, or also by the loss of a loved one. In any case, being capable to use love as a theme was a great advantage for writers of English Re...
  • Emily's Poems
    746 words
    Love Theme's in Emily Dickinson's Poetry In evaluating Emily Dickinson's biography and poems, I surmised that excluding the love of father, brother, and her deceased nephew, Emily's knowledge of romantic love, by first-hand experience, is questionable. The pure-of-mind reader may believe that what familiarity she had about love matters might have been based mainly on her extensive reading of literature. Emily was an avid reader and was particularly fond of, among others, Ralph Waldo Emerson and ...
