For my assignment I chose to write about “Magic of Love” written by Helen Farries and “Love Poem” written by John Frederick Nims to compare to William Blake’s poems “The Lamb” and “The Tyger”. I would compare “Magic of Love” by Farries to William Blake’s “The Lamb”. In her poem she speaks of love in a way that I feel should be the way we all see it. I agree with her when she writes, “It can comfort and bless, it can bring happiness-“. She feels love is supposed to make you feel safe in the way religion can bring security and bring happiness to people.
Lisa Parker compares the simple touch to how the grandmother holds tomatoes under a spigot. This gives the idea that the grandmother knows how fragile the younger girl is and that she is very loving and understanding of the girl. Even when the girl is at college, she yearns to be home because she misses her grandmother. The younger girl cries into a quilt that her grandmother made her. An obvious love exists between the two characters, and the relationship is expressed throughout the entirety of the
The Helmer’s marriage is, on the surface, a very happy marriage. Nora and Torvald are loving and affectionate towards one another. Torvald addresses Nora with a myriad of pet names that she seems to enjoy. One could argue that these names are condescending, but Nora doesn’t seem to mind. It is only when one hears pet names from someone one does not love that they are condescending, and until the climax of the play, Nora genuinely loves Torvald.
Settings: Funny face mainly takes place in a place called Garden City, I think that Garden City is what they call a special place in their backyard, since it is called ‘Garden’ City, it a place where they come to have fun. It is what would be considered the perfect place to be, since everyone seem very happy, for instance “She said I was beautiful and my mother, laughing, agreed” they really seem to be having a great time in Garden City. The poem switches between several places, but the main story takes place in Garden City. They go from being in Garden city to a stage where the girl has to perform and put on her funny face. Narration: The poem is written with a first person narrator.
In this poem, the lady autumn teams up with the sun, basks in the breeze of a granary, and takes lazy naps in a field. Lines 2-3: Autumn is personified for the first of many times in the poem. She and the sun whisper together like a bunch of gossipy teenage girls. But the goal is serious and necessary: they are responsible for the bounty of fruit and crops that will sustain people through the winter. Line 12: The speaker asks a rhetorical question to introduce a connection he believes the reader will recognize, between autumn and the harvest.
Praise focuses on what the adult thinks or feels, and often includes a judgment such as "good." Praise statements starting with "I like..." send a subtle message that the adult’s opinion is what is important. Statements like "You're such a nice girl" or "I love your block tower!" or "I'm so proud of you for cleaning up" are examples of praise that may sound effective. But children who are praised tend to do things to please adults, not because they are motivated themselves.
Also love is normally given and received. The relationship between two friends provides freedom to talk about anything. These good friends go through good times and bad times together and support each other. In a relationship where friendship is shared between a boy and a girl can be seen as platonic love. This love implies a normal behavior between two friends except that the relationship is more intense.
'Do you smell that, Lulu? Mama said it's the earth back to work after the rain,’ announced Persephone, her tiny hand holding Leuce's gently swinging back and forth, back and forth. In the other a gold strand pulling a small wooden cart Hades fashioned for her, full of freshly picked flowers; blood red poppies, lilac crocus and glorious white lilies. 'Remember now, Persephone, we don't want to get mother angry by ruining our dresses. We'll play a little then back home it is... with no fuss whatsoever.'
The short story reveals that solitary and isolation develop a much more perceptive and insightful younger generation. It also encourages youngsters to shift loyalties and try to please both their parents. These youngsters are persuaded by loneliness to seek a place of comfort and ease beyond their homes. A good example are the two sisters in ‘ Traitors ’ who obtain this comfort from the burnt down house they discover on their farm. They escape to their hideout for hours and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of life.
He also talks about how important love is, and states that the problem of human existence is love. In “A natural history of love,” Ackerman explores historical, biological, literature, and pop cultural aspects of love. Each book has its own individual outlook on love; with some similar themes throughout the books. In “The art of loving,” Fromm states love is to be learned like an art form. He also stresses the importance of loving one’s self and being open to love.
