Sonnet 116 uses repeated pairs of words, “love is not love”, “alters when alteration finds” suggesting it is to be like “couples” and to also further emphasize the theme of love in the sonnet. He also uses metaphors such as “looks on the tempest and is never shaken” and “is the stars to every wand’ring bark,” this is emphasizing that love is an essential part of the world by using metaphors based on natural elements. Sonnet 116 affects the reader as it is saying that if the love was true, whatever the circumstance, it would not change and is everlasting. This sonnet is very much linked in with Hero and Claudio’s relationship. Their relationship is very traditional and conventional like the sonnet.
I will prove this is true in the following paragraphs Shakespeare uses a large variety of metaphors and similes. A metaphor found in Sonnet 116,” Loves not Times fool, though rosy lips and cheeks” is a symbol of outer beauty that changes with time. Sonnet 138 shows a similar image, “When my love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her, though I know she lies,” paints the picture of love in a similar way. Both the poems are depicting a love that has been through good and bad that have developed over time. For instance beauty fading with time and also trust fading.
On the contrary, in Sonnet 43 the speaker’s (probably the poet) feelings are very passionate: her affection seems to have no limits. She is focused on the romantic/ideal love involving God and is in her own spiritual world. In Duffy’s poem, her feelings are hurt but she still loves the other person : “silver bullets of your kiss”(l.15). This metaphor contains an ambiguous mix of two lexical fields that oppose each other. “Bullets” reminds us that violence still remains from the fight and that the pain has not been forgotten.
This is a very effective way of saying that love is true. Shakespeare also uses the language in each line to emphasise the fact that love is unreactive and is not changed y external factors. For example, “looks on tempests and is never shaken”, he is saying that love can see storms and not be affected. This is a good use off a metaphor to emphasise the power of love. He wrote as well that a price cannot be put upon love; “whose worth’s unknown”.
English – Essay “Romeo and Juliet shows that love has both costs and benefits.” Discuss Love as an emotion is usually associated with contentment. The Play, Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare associates love in positive and negative ways. He shows how love has costs and benefits. Love, as defined by the Oxford Dictionary, is “a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.” Love is split up into costs and benefits. Benefits is defined as” something that is advantageous or good; an advantage” This is how we usually think of love.
The image of Benedick "wast[ing] inwardly" is used playfully as the audience know it isn't true. Perhaps Shakespeare has include this image of a lovesick Benedick to further satirise the type of love so meaningfully presented in Petrarchan poetry. This contrasts sharply with the nature of Romeo and Juliet's declaration of love. Like Juliet, Beatrice also takes charge of the relationship once Benedick has sworn his love for her. However, unlike Romeo, Benedick swears his love on his hand, proving perhaps that he will prove his love through his actions, not just words.
Themes in ‘The Birthmark’ by Nathaniel Hawthorne Nathaniel Hawthorne develops a range of themes with his literary techniques such as, characterization plot development, and the use of poetic devices in the story “The Birthmark.” The themes of this story are; one should love unconditionally; no human can change the fate of another to make them perfect; and science cannot conquer nature. An important theme in ‘The Birthmark’ is, ‘love unconditionally.’ The character of Georgiana helps to develop this theme because of her devotion to Aylmer. Although the crimson birthmark on her cheek disgusts Aylmer and he makes that clear to her quite often, Georgina still loves him and stays devoted to him. She allows him to attempt to remove the birthmark with a risky scientific procedure that could cost her her life. This theme is expanded upon is by Hawthorne’s carefully played out plot development.
She said that she would continue trading love in the autumn of life (moments of suffering) to keep the individual alive peacefully. The poet tries to explain that love is real & pure and life is nothing without love. She has compared a life without love with a fractured bone which is useless. She ends up saying that love is everything & life without love is nothing. Generally the love poem revolves around the feeling of love, the pain, the good & bad experiences in love & the ironies of being in love.
Sonnet 116 and Even Tho Sonnet 116 is about love, not between a particular couple, but as a concept. The poem explores what is meant by love, and says that, if it is true, love is one of life's constants and it doesn’t change with time or circumstance. Whereas Even Tho explores the sensual side of love and it also captures the idea of carnival. Even Tho says that you should have fun without being overcome or ‘devoured’ it is a slight contrast to Sonnet 116 as Nichols states that important to be individual whereas Sonnet 116 says we should stay together forever. Sonnet 116 uses repeated pairs of words: "love is not love", "alters when it alteration finds" and "remover to remove" this is a mini parallel structure.
