By comparing his lover to the ‘Indian Ganges’, and himself to the ‘Humber’, a considerably less desirable river, he attempts to win her over with flattery, creating an entertaining image for the reader. Similarly, in ‘Sonnet 43’, Browning continues the theme of flattery, by listing the many ways in which she ‘loves thee’, except in this poem, there is no contrast, her sole aim
In the play you can see familial, friendly, unrequited, true, and sexual love. All the different types of love and the relationships that came with it are the cause of the tragic ending of Othello the Moor and the gentle Desdemona. The first type of love that you see in the play is family love. The relationship between Brabantio and Desdemona in the play is very strained seeing as how she ran off to get married without his consent, which back in the day was a big no-no. You can still see the love that they have for each other when Desdemona says “To you I am bound for life and education; / My life and education both do learn me/ How to respect you.
“To His Coy Mistress” Fuck me or die, shall your youthful moist skin dry up without the warmth and pleasures of the erupting volcano. This is a strong statement intended to get the undivided attention of the reader. Andrew Marvell has cleverly hidden this message with poetic devices in his short story, “To His Coy Mistress.” This poem is about an older man who pursues a young virgin woman with poetic devises that mocks the ladies’ desire to wait before she decides to engage in sexual pleasures. Some may say her reasons are religious, fear of her God, or is it really fear of this mans penis? Whatever the reason may be it is her reason and he constantly chooses to pursue her.
In John Clare's poem 'First Love' we see love as an instant attraction and he says it was a love 'so sudden.' It also highlights the aspect of unrequited love as the relationship between the poet and the person he loves has never even started. In fact he is hardly noticed as we can see from the rhetorical question 'And when she looked 'what could I ail?'' It is only in his own mind that she even perceived his love for her. ‘She seemed to hear my silent voice And loves appeal to know’ (L19, 20) This depicts love as obsessive and selfish.
In the poem, Collins tries to manufacture the feeling of fishing on the Susquehanna River. He finds a painting of someone fishing on the river and is immediately captivated by it. The contrast between the more simple diction in stanza six, and the descriptive diction in stanzas eight, nine, and ten, suggests that the most realistic art is made by those who draw from experience, but even this art cannot replace the sensation of real experience itself. …Since he has never, in fact, been to this river, he can't describe his surroundings in detail. In contrast, the diction he uses in describing the painting of the river is far more striking and illustrative.
The poem blessing, by Imtiaz Dharker depicts the desperation of water in a place, which is a victim of drought. One of the perpetually noticeable ideas is that water is highly essential and that it is very precious. Through the use of linguistic devices, certain words and religious references the poet enriches the meaning of the poem and conveys vividly the importance of water. Blessing being a descriptive poem, uses imagery to illustrate sights and sounds, and creates an atmosphere of frantic joy. The poem has no fixed metrical pattern and consists of inconsistent usage of end-rhyme, followed by mélange of literary devices.
Although there is a lot of reference to violent and aggressive behaviour it does not make her hesitant, one could even say she was blinded by her love for him. To his coy mistress is a metaphorical poem, where the speaker addresses a woman who has been slow to respond to his sexual requests. In the first stanza he discusses how he would love constantly for an unlimited amount, if only time was not running out. If he could he would give her everything and anything till death. He quickly begins to mention how short life is even referencing her ‘preserved virginity’ being taken when she’s dead as ‘worms shall try.’ He finishes by focusing on the present and telling her to make the most of the time that they have now, which hints at the use of sexual innuendo.
The story begins with two people, alone on a quiet afternoon, fishing in a lake. After discovering each other's true personalities and the clashes that ensue from their differences, "The End of Something" fatefully ends with the final separation of Nick and Marjorie. In the opening paragraph, we can almost smell the lumber. Vivid imagery cascades through the senses - the smell of moist pine and damp spring air. However, the descriptions of scenery are added in by Hemingway to suggest detriment in the future of our two lovers, Nick and Marjorie.
The poem is structured in rhyming couplets and is also structured in a court-like argument with the first stanza stating what the man intends to do to her, much like when someone puts forth their opinion in the court. In the second stanza, the man starts off with the word ‘BUT’ then goes on further to talk about their lack of time, life being too short, and how it is possible the young lady might die a virgin – “Thy beauty
First examining marriage in Pride and Prejudice, the prime example of it in this novel is that surrounding the Bennett family who are not wealthy people, and there is nothing that Mrs Bennett wants more than to see her daughters get married to wealthy men. She presents this desperation at the very beginning of the book when she is eagerly mentioning the fact that Netherfield Park has been let, and she is said to be speaking “impatiently” when her husband does not return this eagerness. This is shown when she says “you do not know what I suffer”. This suffering may be as a result of her own marriage (which disappoints her) or the fact that she wants each of her five daughters to find wealthy husbands. She states in the first chapter that the “solace” of marriage is “visiting and news.” This explains why Mrs Bennett is so desperate for her husband to visit Bingley and find out more about him and to introduce him to their daughters.
