It can be translated in different ways through the time. “Conjoined” (1891) by Judith Minty is a blank verse poem which uses a lot of metaphors that describe a broken relationship ; the poem gives you a feeling of a general unhappiness. In contrast, « My Dear and Loving Husband » (1678) by Anne Bradstreet, is a true declaration of love. The poet talks about her husband, celebrating their unity and stating that there is no other woman in the world who is as happy with her husband as she is. The two poems give two competing visions of marriage.
“Compare the ways in which Larkin and Abse write about time and it’s passing.” In your response, you must include detailed critical discussion of Love Songs In Age and one other poem by Larkin. Many poems in Philip Larkin’s ‘The Whitsun Weddings’ are connected through one common factor: Larkin’s rather dismal attitude towards time and the passing of it. In many of his poems Larkin presents time as a menial entity resulting in an inevitable mortality. However, on further examination Larkin reflects back on time in a nostalgic manner. In order to emphasise Larkin’s outlooks onto time and it’s passing, one can highlight the similarities and differences between Larkin and Abse’s poetry.
Compare how feelings towards another person are presented in “Hour” and “To His Coy Mistress” “Hour” by Carol Ann Duffy and “To His Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvel, deal with feelings and emotions towards another person in different ways. In “Hour” the narrator describes an hour spent between her and her lover, and how the feeling of love they share between them is so strong it nearly manages to stop time. Whereas in “To His Coy Mistress” the narrator is telling the woman who he loves that she shouldn’t play hard to get because there isn’t enough time in the world. His feelings of physical passion grow throughout the poem as he tries to persuade her to have sex with him while they are still young and attractive. Form and structure are used effectively in both poems to show feelings and emotions to their lovers.
Despite the emotional and psychological disconnection, it is apparent that the narrator has some feeling. He recalls moments in detail and recollects the stories given to him by his wife with what seems to be great precision. However, the narrator is faced with quite the dilemma. When he begins to feel an appreciation for his wife he cannot express it, for he is trapped in the isolated and emotionless world which he created. The narrator’s wife brings the blind man home, drink in hand, already surprising the narrator; this is breaking one of the taboos set forth in his mind.
However, after Leroy’s accident, Leroy notices how distant he and Norma Jean have become. Despite this, Leroy still loves his wife and thinks fondly of her. The growing anxiety about the gradual loss of intimacy between Leroy and his wife is apparent in several places throughout the story. Take for example when Mason tells us that “He knows he is going to lose [Norma Jean] (Mason 337).” The idea that he might lose the woman he loves bothers Leroy. This prompts thoughts of starting their relationship anew by sitting down and getting to know each other again, and trying to build Norma Jean the
A friend of mine reminds me of Tom because she always puts other things before her family. I can relate to Tom's character at the end of the story because I see the value in putting family first. In the beginning of the story, Tom is shown as a man who would rather work than spend quality time with his wife. “Got to get this done though” (111), is Tom’s response to his wife when she asks him to go to the movies with her. This shows how selfish Tom is because he decides to spend time working on research for a promotion rather than spending quality time with his wife.

The Price of Education One thing that many people do not think about when choosing to acquire an education is the effect it may have on their relationships with friends and family.
