Sonnets 29 and 30 contain similarities and differences in theme and style. The two sonnets have similar stories. Sonnet 29 shows an insecure and troubled Shakespeare, who feels unlucky, ashamed, and jealous of those around him. However, the sonnet ends positively; the poet believes that he can combat his sadness with the "sweet love" (13) of his dear friend. Similarly, in Sonnet 30, the poet's sorrowful recollections of his dead friends are sparked by a lover's absence.
We can only assume that some of the feelings Poe experienced are the same as the ones the grieving man feels in "Annabel Lee". He also happens to be a widowed husband or lover of sorts. The narrator mourns the loss of his precious love, his beautiful "Annabel Lee." Showing the extreme dedication to his lost love the narrator sleeps in the "sepulcher
Comparing Two Poems The Old Familiar Faces by Charles Lamb and Mid-Term Break by Seamus Heaney The poems “The Old Familiar Faces” by Charles Lamb and “Mid-Term Break” by Seamus Heaney have both similarities and difference. Both are sad poems about tragedies and want to inspire pity in the reader. Also both of them had a very similar structure. However, the diction is completely different as well as the imagery. Both poems explore sensations of grief, sadness, mortality and having to cope with the disappearance of loved ones.
When “Though” is used it is almost like it is natural that the “night was made for loving” and that Byron is going against the will of nature itself if he does not love. Finally, the word “Yet” acts as a final sending off for the wants of Byron, when it is used in the penultimate line of the poem. It carries with it an idea that the good times will never return and it is possibly this word which is burdened with the greatest amount of lamentation in the entire poem. Thus, Byron’s word choice suggests an idea of grief to the reader. Lord Byron has also used cataloguing in the second stanza, by using “And” in three consecutive lines.
That is, except for the star crossed lovers, Romeo Montague, and Juliet Capulet. This theme of hate in this play written by Shakespeare, encourages us to think about how others hate can come between your own love. Romeo and Juliet took their lives as they could not live without each other. This love that has come to a tragic end has brought the two feuding families to peace. They see that their own hate for one another has ended with the death of the ones they love most, and that they cannot let this continue.
Which leads the reader to believe that the Duke killed his wife, or had someone to put her to her death. The duke sees himself as a compassionate and loving man, but the readers see him as a deceitful and jealous man. As the Duke speaks of his Duchess to his guest, in the beginning, he sounds extremely compassionate and caring towards her and that he actually misses her. We see this in lines one and two where he states “That's my last Duchess painted on the wall, looking as if she were alive.” When he says he tries to make it seem like he genially misses her and is mentioning her beauty by saying that she was so beautiful you even see it in the painting. But as a reader when you read this we see that he maybe didn’t love her as much as he says he does, for example any man or even anybody that has lost a loved one feels a lot more sorrow when they talk about someone they’ve lost.
Each poem expressed either similar or different ways in which the poet or the speaker used positive or negative human emotions. In the poem Going, by Bruce Dawe a positive technique has been used to create a mood of happiness and content although the poem is revolved around death. This poem differs immensely from that of Daddy, by Sylvia Plath as that poem is much more dark and bleak. Sylvia Plath has used direct address in order to create a much more sensitive frame of mind for the reader. The purpose of this poem is to celebrate his mother in laws life and way of living in order to honour her.
This is shown in lines 1 and 2, "Because I could not stop for death, / He kindly stopped for me" (Dickinson). The poet gives death the character traits of being kind, seen in line two. It even seems that the woman is somewhat flattered in the kind nature of her suitor. In lines 3 and 4, "The carriage held but just ourselves / And Immortality" (Dickinson). These lines give us
The title of ‘Mid-term break’ ironically suggests that the poem may be a happy and joyous one about getting away from school but the poem is actually very sad and depressing. Heaney helps us to imagine the situation by homing in our senses by using war and death imagery such as ‘corpse’ and ‘poppy bruise’. Similarly the school life of Timothy Winters is sad and depressing also shown through war imagery, for example in the first verse Timothy is said to have “Ears like bombs.” This language darkens the mood of the poems. making us see or imagine what he is writing about and by making us hear what he has written about. He has done this in mid-term break by using phrases like ‘corpse’ and ‘a poppy bruise’.
How does Hardy strikingly convey his feelings to you in The Darkling Thrush? The Darkling Thrush is a poem written by Thomas Hardy, describing his feelings at the turn of the century. I really sympathise with his description of his emotions at the end of a year, and he does this effectively through his description of the scenery, his description of the thrush, and how he describes himself during the poem. Hardy uses the landscape to describe his emotions in this poem, a technique called pathetic fallacy. I think that this is very effective, because he strongly conveys feelings of death, depression and He uses a lot of deathly imagery to describe the scenery, which makes me think of a very sombre, sad and gloomy scene.
