In this stanza he uses the words flame and name, which goes along with the irregular rhyme scheme that happens throughout the poem. In the last stanza, the speaker states “Don’t believe me, please if I say/ that was just my butterfingered way, at thirteen, of asking you if you would marry me.” This part of the poem would elicit skeptical emotions from the reader, as they would not know whether to believe if the speaker is legitimately remorseful. The poet also uses alliteration in that stanza when he says “marry me”, and from its demeanour, it evokes forgiveness from the reader because he wants to let the reader know that he was immature in expressing his love. The alliteration provides
Instead of using synonyms for the amount of times she put love into the sonnet, with the repetitiveness it is clear the kind of message she was trying to put across. Although this can be seen as a story, it is in fact an in the moment writing also known as lyrical poetry. It is a story of ones love for
This may be done to defend the poem, which has relatively of what typifies Romantic poetry, against the attacks of critics in Coleridge’s own day, as it does not seem to be true about the poem itself. By attributing the images of “Kubla Khan” to a dream (identified later as a drug-induced reverie), Coleridge allows people to dream a bit themselves as they read the poem, something forgotten in the Neo-Classical period, but seeing something of a rebirth with the Romantics. Imagination is the key to “Kubla Khan,” and is the source from which it stems. The work Purchas his Pilgrimage is in part to blame (or praise) for Coleridge’s dream, according to the introduction, because the plot of the poem resides within it, and was his last thought before falling into sleep. As Benjamin Franklin once claimed to do, Coleridge goes on to quote himself with much gravity.

Drayton’s theme is typical Petrarchan a lover's passion and pangs for his mistress who is not responsive and love. Because of this technique, Drayton is also found to be a follower of Shakespeare. This may be the reason of this sonnet’s rhyme scheme which is ABABCDCDEFEFGG just like in Shakespearean sonnets. The metrical exception in line 1 “SINCE there|” stresses the fact that there is no hope for the persona to regain his lost love, so he has finally accepted his fate, and possibly that’s the reason why he’s writing the poem couching his feelings into the sonnet. This poem has a very clear structure: quatrain 1, quatrain 2, quatrain 3 and a couplet.
Philip Larkin and Dannie Abse have very different and contrasting attitudes to relationships. On the whole, Larkin presents the concepts of love and marriage as very superficial and meaningless, whereas Abse appears to be less such nihilistic and more open and positive about such topics. Throughout Wild Oats, Philip Larkin uses various literary techniques, such as imagery, structure and symbolism to convey certain aspects of love and the passing of time. Larkin's poetry often relates to the social and cultural views upon love and marriage in his time. In Wild Oats It explains that a person, over the course of time, comes to realise that his greatest desires of love, are unattainable, and second best things will have to suffice.
The tone is set as Wordsworth states in his first stanza: Strange fits of passion have I known: And I will dare to tell, But in the lover's ear alone, What once to me befell (Poem Hunter, 2011, pg.8). Wordsworth sets the tone that he only wants serious readers who have known love to read his poem. The reader must have a full understanding of love and the passion that comes along with love to be able to sympathize with Wordsworth about his feelings for Lucy. The author uses several different types of poetic devices. The significance of the title in this poem is crucial to the reader understanding just how that the
When a person is in love with someone else, or maybe because of other events, he/she may pour all he/she feels into a form of writing called poem, some words which are arranged in certain pattern that contains a lot of meanings. From writing the poem, our feeling which can’t be spoken, could expressed with more strong meaning inside word by word. And in this writing, the writers discussed about a poet titled “Sympathy” by Emily Bronte. Instead of concerning that this writing is given as a task, the writers find out that “Sympathy” is a love poem. That gives an interesting impression in how she expressed her feeling about love.
Philosophy William Shakespeare was an English poet that had different ways of expressing the feeling of love. It seems his philosophy of love was very basic and clear for us to understand, it’s a more realistic writings than theoretical explanation. He believed that love fix every problem in the relationship. Many of his sonnets basically talk about how love can reconcile all things no matter what the situation. No matter if the relation is good and evil; if in the relationship have lies or always speck with the truth, passion and deception.
