In the poem “Singh Song!”, the poet uses repetition to show the persona of Singh as being very personal and intimate when he spends the little time that he has with his “newly bride”. The repetition of the word “baby” tells the reader that Singh is happy being married to his wife and that he gives her a high status in his life. The repetition of “my bride” is triple refrained which perhaps suggests that Singh has a surprising nature about his wife. This creates an interesting character as it tells us that he is willing to stop working and go against his father’s orders just to spend time with his wife. Despite the criticism he receives from his customers, Singh seems to hold his wife as a major and main priority in his life and could suggest that his emotional and mental wellbeing depends on his wife.
The author only ends a phrase with an exclamation point, emphasizing the speaker’s excitement for engaging in a sexual encounter with her lover once again. Dickinson’s use of a nautical theme carries throughout the poem, as she compares her love to things such as the sea. The speaker is free from frustration when she finally reaches her love. Dickinson’s religious views and life-style choices were extremely different from those of her family and her friends. She lived in a very conservative time period.
Bradstreet’s poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband” argues how an individual should live life on Earth opposed to the Puritan belief that one should devote all their time to God in order to seek salvation. Bradstreet opens up with the paradox: “If ever two were one, then surely we.” This paradox defies logic because it is impossible for two individuals to be one. It emphasizes Bradstreet’s love to her husband because she is stating that their love was beyond logic connoting that her love for her husband wasn’t rational, that it was something more. This brings on the ideology of marital unity, which their souls were joined together into one entity opposed to a representation of two individual beings, emphasizing that their love was everlasting. This denounces Puritan belief because only one individual was above reasoning and rationalization, God.
How does she respond to his request? What does her response suggest about her and about her feelings for her beloved? Use examples from the text in your response. Answer: The beloved asks the speaker to describe how he feels about her.

Is not that strange?” At the end of this line, Benedick asks if it is strange for him to love because they have always had a friendly war of words between each other and due to the fact that they squabble frequently. Benedick should take Beatrice’s hands into his own when he says this. Moreover, he should express love and honesty while smiling. Beatrice replies that it is strange when she says “As strange as the thing I know not,” and then she says “It were as possible for me to say that I loved nothing so well as you” but then takes this back by quickly adding “but believe me not.” Beatrice then reveals the cause of her sorrow and her true agenda, Claudio and Hero. While saying these lines, Beatrice should show signs of confusion by ruffling her hair and by walking in different directions and by altering the speed of each
The last stanza reaffirms the strong bonds of family love. The line ‘Faint scent of violets drifts in air’ recalls the past and enriches the present where the persona is going through hardships in life. As she has looked back to the childhood memories for sustenance and support, it shapes her life and allows her to gain strength from comforting memories. The idea that the past is irreclaimable and neither death nor time can distort the memory of the moment is evident. “Father and Child” is essentially concerned with the loss of innocence through a negative experience, which allows the persona to grow.
ï»¿Harmonium and Praise Song for my Mother Comparison AQA English Lit Poetry Moon on the Tides Relationships GCSE In âHarmoniumâ, Armitage presents an awkward relationship between a weak, aging gfather and his embarrassed son, who finds it difficult to express his feelings.

“Go, get thee to thy love, as was decreed. Ascend her chamber, and comfort her. But look thou stay not till the watch be set, for thou canst not pass to Mantua, where thou shalt live, till we an find a time, to blaze your marriage, reconcile your friends, beg pardon of the Prince, and call thee back with twenty hundred thousand times more joy.” (3, 3, 146) this is a shameful manipulation of Romeo, because Friar Lawrence is in no position to promise such a rosy
Beatrice expresses her acceptance of Benedick’s love but does not realize the love inside Beatrice exists artificially. Beatrice’s faith in her emotions leaves her vulnerable to any criticism of her love to Benedick. For instance, when Hero commands Margaret to fetch Beatrice, Hero and Ursula purposely allow Beatrice to listen to them to invoke a stronger attraction in Beatrice towards Benedick. Shakespeare allows the first sign of the theme deception to manifests itself within Hero and Ursula’s conversation. Shakespeare aims to project a very harsh form of deception here in order to emphasize the power of deception of love.
