In many families there are conflicts or disagreements.
Let me count the ways.” (Line 1 Sonnet 43) The use of first person, authenticates that both poems are written for a personal response, this however cannot be seen in ‘Romeo and Juliet’ apart from when the characters speak. The use of alliteration in ‘Sonnet 43’, confirms that the poem was written for Browning’s lover. The repetition of “I love thee...” Shows it’s a personal poem for her true love. However, ‘Valentine’ could be interpreted as an open poem to allow the readers to understand the experiences Duffy has faced. The use of “...we are, for as long as we are.” (Line 16 and 17) Shows that Duffy is inviting her readers into the poem to help reflect upon how she feels.
Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King are the masters of their craft, blessed- or perhaps cursed- with imaginations that set higher standards in the field of writing. Both authors broke new ground in fiction that has had a significant impact on the world of literature. Though both mainly delved in the macabre, they are both also known for other works. Poe
This may be why this poem is written like it is, compared to poetry written years after this. Marvell puts across the point of they don’t have all the time in the world together, if they don’t have sexual intercourse soon. This may be because points we’re looked at differently two hundred years after Shakespeare time. The first similarity I noticed was that the both poems share the same theme. This is the theme of Love.

The Life and the Uncanny Literary Works of Edgar Allan Poe When giving thought and looking back on the many illustrious writers of the 1800’s it is uncommon to not mention Edgar Allan Poe. While many writers’ literary pieces are easy to classify and place in a specific genre, Edgar’s work was what one might call “weird”. Using this type of adjective suggests a personal opinion, but to understand his work you must in a sense understand him. As a young adult Poe developed his love for literature when at the University of Virginia he became an active member of The Jefferson Literary Society. Soon after, Poe began on a little volume of poetry and the more famous piece entitled “Tamerlane”.
Edgar Allan Poe Out of all the great well known American literature authors; Edgar Allan Poe is the name that everyone has heard of. Edgar Allan Poe has written many well known pieces. There are many rumors about Edgar Allan Poe weather it is good or bad. some say that he was abusive and an alcoholic. some say that he’s a genius when it comes to literature.
As a consequence, this world becomes known through “experience”, a state of being marked by the loss of childhood optimism and enthusiasm, by fright and inhibition, and by social and political corruption. William Blake considered that without contraries there is no progression and, indeed, some of his works are built on oppositions, like The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, Ideas of Good and Evil or, of course, the volume Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Two of Blake’s famous collections of poetry are Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience. The two collections go together-that is, many of the poems in Songs of Innocence have corresponding poems in Songs of Experience. Many of the poems are religious and a prime example of contrasting two poems is 'The Lamb' from Songs of Innocence and 'The Tyger' from Songs of Experience.
Both are complaining about their previous spouse. The ex-wife probably would not be able to do this in the time of “My Last Duchess”. Women did not have a voice then. Another large cultural difference is when the Duke orders the death of his Duchess, which would be considered criminal in the time of “My Ex-Husband.” This would also be true with “My Ex-Husband” when the ex-wife divorces her husband, this would be considered criminal at the time of the other poem. Other cultural differences are easy to point out, the painting in “My Last Duchess” compared to the photograph taken with a Leica in “My Ex-Husband.” The cultural differences do a great deal to make the poems differ, but they still remain inevitably
Henry didn’t like referring to his divorce from Catherine of Aragon as a divorce. He called it the ‘great matter’, after 6 years Henrys hard work resulted in a divorce from Catherine followed by marriage to Anne Boleyn. A lot of historians have questioned the true meaning behind the divorce; some believe it was Henrys love for Anne Boleyn that drove him. Many love letters were passed between the two of them and Anne didn’t take up the position of mistress. When writing to Anne Henry used uses phrases such as ‘my heart shall be dedicated to you alone’.
