Meanwhile, the rest of the group thought that she was crazy, that it was more of an abuse relationship. Then Mel started explaining what love was to him. It was spiritual love, a day-to-day caring for the other person. “There was a time when I thought I loved my first wife more than life its self. But now I hate her guts”.
Saves the Day wrote this song either to express their view of the situation or more likely as an actual message to a girl. The circumstances and details used in the song suggest that the situation did occur with one of the band members and he wrote about it in the form of a message to the girl he feels love for. The speaker of the song expresses deep passion for the girl, yet he shows hate, envy and confusion as well. Saves the Day uses the lyrics to convey the love that the speaker shows for the girl, his misunderstanding of her, how she drives him crazy, and what he would do to win
These effects drive her to ask for God’s help who she does not openly ask for, but instead uses symbolism to convey, such as in the quote “Who sendeth help to those in misery.” I often do the same thing when in times of extreme illness, whether it be me or friends or family I look to God for help and pray that they get better. The poem clearly shows her acceptance and reliance on God when she looked to him to ease her pain and misery “He chased away those clouds [of misery] and let [her] see” and she believed he answered her prayers like in the example, “He eased my soul of woe, my flesh of pain/and brought me to the shore from troubled main.” I am interested in what type of illnesses Anne Bradstreet caught knowing her background of coming to the New World as a Puritan. This poem was written during the 1600s, which is considered the Puritans time. The influence the time period had on Anne Bradstreet’s writing, and the fact she was a Puritan herself is evident in many of her poems, this one included. She uses Puritan Plain Style, characterized by using short words, for example “He eased my soul of woe, my flesh of pain.” The time period and how old it is compared to modern day writing shows through her use of words like sendeth and th’ .
he thinks. "If Lucy should be dead!" Within “Strange fits of passion have I known” the overall theme of the poem is love and compassion for a woman. This poem is about the love of a couple which presents a tone of complete devotion and everlasting love. In ‘strange fits’ Wordsworth describes a relationship blossoming, and the feelings associated with that relationship “Strange fits of passion have I known, and I will dare to tell”.
This enables it to have a much greater impact, and helps the poems transition into the consequences of this pain, such as the anger it causes. Another way that the poets expresses pain in Nettles is by juxtaposing the emotion with the action of soothing and comforting, which the parents do to the child when they are hurt, shown in the line ‘we soothed him till his pain was not so raw.’ The use of the ‘oo’ sound in ‘soothed’ elongates the sentence, giving a sense of calm, juxtaposed to the repetition of the plosive ‘b’ sound of ‘blisters beaded’ in the line before. This, again, amplifies the pain that the child
A Lesson in Mastering Loss Elizabeth Bishop’s poem “One Art” is about loss. In it she mentions many of the small losses in life that we may experience but she is clearly talking about losing a love. Who she is speaking to in this poem is unclear but there is evidence to show that she and she alone is her own audience for this poem. She expresses denial, anger, blame, regret, humor and in the end she exclaims “Write it!”, which looks to be directed from the speaker to herself, either way it can be construed as acceptance. In the poem she goes through increasingly bigger losses that she quickly dismisses in a sarcastic manner until she reaches the loss of her lover.
Her love for Orsino is constant, deep and pure whereas Orsino changes his love abruptly. Also, she unquestioningly carries out Orsino’s orders to woo Olivia even though she loves him: "Nothing but this – your true love for my master" (III. iv. 180). However, even Viola behaves in a slightly foolish way when she falls in love with Orsino.
Tennyson also uses words such as, “Gazing” and “Overlook”, to portray a sense of longing. The longing for life, but also for romance, and it is romance that brightens her life, but then so suddenly ends it. Tennyson repeats the theme of isolation, time after time. The Lady of Shalott is said to be, “Half sick of shadows”, half sick of her repetitive life and her isolation. However, this is juxtaposed by the fact that she, “delights”, in her weaving and the “mirror’s magic sights”, but once again longs for something new.
She goes through all the reasons why love is better than riches and provides true happiness even if the time you have is short. As she steals away her hour of lovers bliss, she tells the reader how she would choose each small moment with her lover over any amount of money or comfort. In the end, she concludes that “love spins gold, gold, gold from straw.” Each poem makes reference to love and danger, restriction, the physical body and sensation, and time. The depth of emotion around these topics is intense but handled very differently in each poem. In ‘Hour’, the love is passionate and sexual.
This gives us the understanding that Lesbia is someone who is more concerned with numerous sexual encounters than with love. There is also a sense that Lesbia manipulated Catullus with her words and promised the world, even though she never planned on staying with him, in poem number 72. Catullus says “You used to say that you wished to know only Catullus, Lesbia, and wouldn't take even Jove before me” (72, 1-2). This manipulation over time makes Catullus bitter towards her, which causes him to think of her as “utterly
