He quickly begins to mention how short life is even referencing her ‘preserved virginity’ being taken when she’s dead as ‘worms shall try.’ He finishes by focusing on the present and telling her to make the most of the time that they have now, which hints at the use of sexual innuendo. The speaker presents an argument in these three parts, however there are several layers of meaning to this poem. To his coy mistress is a poem, and ghazal is an ancient poet form often used to explain the beauty and pain of love. ‘If you are the rhyme and I the refrain,’ this is use of music to describe to describe fate and the feeling of eagerness is unnecessary as she is aware that when the time is right they will become one with each other. It also has several forms of sexual innuendo similar to ‘to his coy mistress’
In Christina Rossetti’s poem “Cousin Kate”, there is a theme of commitment. It is mainly about how one man shows his loyalty towards two women, “Cousin Kate” and the speaker. The lord shows no commitment towards the speaker and uses her for his own sexual pleasure. “He wore me like a silken knot,” in this quote the verb “wore” is comparing the speaker to something that can be used. Also the simile “like a silken knot,” the use of this simile is comparing her to something soft and fragile, therefore there is a theme of possessiveness and this shows that lower class women in the Elizabethan era were easily manipulated by higher class men.
while she's sleeping with lewis she's 'having sex with nick'. When Lewis finds out about lucy's deception, she disregards his feels and in defence says " its not as if we were maried or something." This proves the concept in " cosi fan tutte' is right. It's also right in saying that " woman's constancy is like the arabian pheonix, everyon swears it exists, but no one has seen it". The simile used in this quote emphasises the lack of fidelity within both texts.
In this essay, I will be showing a comparison between ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (Shakespeare), ‘To His Coy Mistress’ (Marvel) and ‘Sonnet 130’ (Also by Shakespeare). The first main comparison between these three texts is that they all show different types of love. ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is based on true love as both main characters fall in love with each other at first sight. Shakespeare shows their love by the soliloquy and the sonnet that he added to this text as the words and techniques used in them project a connection between Romeo and Juliet. ‘To His Coy Mistress’ shows an idea of a sexual and lustful love.
Poetry Compare and Contrast Love and Madness True love is the theme in the poem “Porphyria’s Lover,” by Robert Browning, and “Annabel Lee,” written by Edger Allen Poe. They were written in the same time period both having romantic notions, and share the same dramatic monologue style. Both are similar poems in their deranged views of love. However, the manner in which their beautiful lovers die and how they felt after their death, differ greatly. The men in both poems truly loved their women in the beginning, but by the end they had become obsessive, drove themselves to insanity, and slept next to the dead bodies of their lovers.
In Anne Bradstreet’s poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” she intensifies the meaning of love by suggesting to the reader that she adores and loves her husband. The style is simple. Bradstreet perfects the straightforward, plain style form of writing. She uses figurative language to advocate her underlying love for her beloved husband. This is made evident in the line, “My love is such that rivers cannot quench.” The narrator wants to be with her husband forever, for eternity.
Compare how ideas about love are presented in Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 and Barrett-Browning’s Sonnet 43. In the course of the essay, I will compare and contrast both poems’ idea of love. Both poems generally give a positive overview of love; both poets suggest that love is never ending and can battle through bad situations. Shakespeare’s sonnet takes the form of argument, talking about the unchanging and eternal qualities of love whilst Browning’s sonnet is like a direct poem to her husband discussing the nature of her love for him. Shakespeare starts the poem with the imperative “let me not to the marriage of true minds” which sets the tone and exploration of true love.
In fact from the epigraph at the beginning of this poem from Shakespeare’s will in which he bequeaths “unto my wife my second best bed” the reader might be inclined to believe the same. However, Duffy has chosen to subvert this unfortunate perception, and instead, through Hathaway’s monologue, attempts to convince us of the great love that existed between them. At the beginning of the poem Hathaway invites us to visualise the romantic and imaginative nature of her relationship she has with Shakespeare and centres is around the key symbol of “the second best bed”. The idea of the second best bed continues throughout the poem and symbolises where Hathaway and Shakespeare spent most of their time and where they made love. The poem makes gives the impression Hathaway and Shakespeare had a good sex life.
Christianity: The One True Religion Christianity is the one true religion. You’re probably thinking, “Well, how do you know that?” I know this because the bible says so, in many places. One example of that is in Romans, chapter six. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” This is saying that if we sin, and don’t ask God for forgiveness, the penalty is, and always will be, death. Also John chapter ten says, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.” This is saying that if you believe in God, put all your faith in Him, you will be saved.
Young (251). Donne shows his love in these poems through references to physical love, the union of two souls, and journeys. These references can be seen in “To his Mistress Going to Bed,” “The Flea,” “The Extasie,” and “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning”. One of the ways Donne expresses the theme of love is through physical love. The two main poems that refer to physical love are “To his Mistress Going to Bed” and “The Flea.” Donne’s poem “To his Mistress Going to Bed” is about the speaker trying to convince a women to remove her clothes by saying “Off with that girdle, like heaven's zone glittering, / But a far fairer world encompassing.
