The imagery found in this piece is used to emphasize on the more hopeful emotion, which prepares the reader for the shift into the next stanza. To give her emotions more of a realistic appeal, Leona personifies the features and qualities of love. By doing so, she creates a depth to the love she's describing, which allows her to speak of love so painfully and encouraging at the same time. Leona tells us that her "heart's crippled by the vein that I [she] keep[s] on closing." We find Leona conflicted between what she wants, what she feels, and what everyone is telling her.
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.
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.
What do you think are the feelings about marriage in this poem and how does the poet present these feelings to the reader? In the poem 'A marriage', Michael Blumenthal expresses a clear view to the reader by presenting marriage as a positive affair which helps people to share burdens as well as progress their lives. At the beginning of the poem, Blumenthal implies that living on your own is a tire and an exhausting ordeal as he describes the arms as "tired". This word is repeated which exaggerates the misery of loneliness and implies that there is no end; this idea of there being no end is also expressed in "either your arms or the ceiling will soon collapse" giving out before the end. From this, it is clear to the reader that Blumenthal believes that being alone is painful and controlling towards you.
However, going back to human nature and ethics, we need to clearly define that although human nature differs among different cultures and societies, human nature must not be raped of its value for choosing good, and behaving on what brings the best solution for one’s problems in life. Everyone alive is entitled to have his or her own human nature. It is what makes them unique from everyone else. Although human nature is very broad in each individual, we must not forget that our human nature is to fulfill the best interest for ourselves and secondly, for others. For example, since human nature influences the way you think and behave, it is important that whatever you choose to do, it does not go against to how you are designed to be and become.
Unrequited love In the Robert browning poem, ‘The laboratory’ and Shakespeare’s famous ‘Romeo and Juliet’, there is a reoccurring theme of unrequited love. Unrequited love is displayed throughout Romeo and Juliet, as we can see with Romeo’s love for Rosaline at the beginning of the play. Romeo's love for Rosaline is unrequited. He loves her but she cannot love him because she is going to become a nun and nuns are not allowed to have relationships. Rosaline is unobtainable, just like Juliet was at first.
This brings a different, yet genius, dimension to the poem. I think it's tough to read about tragedies like failed and abusive marriages, but describing them though the emotions of a child who is caught in between makes the reader feel both sides of the relationship. On the outside it is nothing short of brutal, yet on the inside there is some love and tenderness displayed. Also, by writing the poem through the point of view of the child, who is writing for his father, you get the emotions and thoughts of both of them and the reactions of the child to his fathers emotions and thoughts. Genius writing by Komunyakaa.
The poem “With His Venom” illustrates romantic love that is described as bittersweet (Sappho, page.772, line 3). However, in the poems “Golden Bells” and “Remembering Golden Bells” Po Chu-i speaks about the love of a father and child, which can also be construed as bittersweet. First, “With His Venom” is a poem about love and the pain that comes with it. The poem begins by saying ‘“With his venom”’ (Sappho, p.772, line 1). Here she uses the word venom to illustrate a perception of love.
Philosophy of Love and Sex – Final Assignment – Question # 2 500287179 April 16, 2014 Philosophy Paper – Woman in Love De Beauvoir highlights a significant difference between man and a woman, regarding love and relationships. Beauvoir outlines the idea of love being two factors, authentic and unauthentic love, between the two genders. According to Beauvoir women treasure and experience love as total devotion, claiming herself as a gift to the man she loves. Men rather view love as being in control, beings that are capable of handling their lives and gaining supremacy without assistance (2010). Women therefore are seen as depending on men and must gain power, independence, transcending with the aid of man (2010).
• In this sonnet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning wishes for her lover, Robert Browning to love her genuinely and unconditionally, and not superficially. This is interpreted through the line “Do not say I love her for her smile ... her look ... her way Of speaking gently ... for a trick of thought That falls in well with mine ...” • She also does not want him to love her out of pity, for she is in physical as well as emotional pain. “Neither love me for Thine own dear pity wiping my tears dry!” • E.B.B’s intention in this specific poem is to express the way she wants Robert Browning to love her. This suggests that Robert Browning’s affection towards her is not strong enough, nor believable. The reason for his lack of affection may be because E.B.B is being too demanding and obstinate of her own perspectives of what love is and how she would like to be loved.
