It is this being so tangled in you” (11-12) in the ancient Egyptian love song called “Love of you is mixed deep in my vitals” because the writer also conveys the same message. Overall, both modern and ancient artists exemplify situations of mature love since each need their lover in their lives to feel complete. Immature love is a situation where a person loves the idea of having “love” causing it to be an unrealistic desire. “Been here all along so why can't you see? You belong with me” (12-13) quoted from Taylor Swift’s song “You Belong with Me”, describes her desperation for her crush by trying to persuade him that she is the one for him.
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.
This is also portrayed in ‘Born yesterday’ when it says “tightly-folded bud” this indicates that although the child may be young and unable to defend for herself her loved ones will try and protect her, however soon they won’t be there to protect her and she will be left to defend for herself. The poem ‘Nettles’ is written in a narrative form, with a fist person speaker. This stresses the fact that the poem has been drawn from personal experiences. The use of the word ‘My’ throughout the poem shows a sense of belonging and protectiveness towards the narrator’s

Lindsey Bozeman L. Bozeman 1 Mrs. Dempsey English 102 January 23, 2013 "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” by Christopher Marlow To experience love is a beautiful thing. The feelings that two young people share is so precious to the heart. Many couples act on their emotions, imagining that they will be together forever. In "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love,” written by Christopher Marlow, the shepherd is asking his lover to run away with him, and the two will live off the land and their love alone. The young shepherd is so consumed with his emotions that he believes as long as they have each other, that it will be all the couple will ever need.
He had also proposed to her daughter but had been rejected again. In the modern age, however, his works became more realistic and free from the mystic beliefs of his early years. Summary: Yeats’ poem “When You Are Old” demonstrates that you won’t notice the real value of the things you have until you don’t have them anymore. The speaker of the poem addresses his beloved saying that when she is aged she should read a particular book which will remind her of her youth. She will remember the people who had loved her grace and her beauty with either real or fake sentiments in the past, and also that one man who had loved her soul unconditionally as she grew old and the way she looked changed.
She states in the first chapter that the “solace” of marriage is “visiting and news.” This explains why Mrs Bennett is so desperate for her husband to visit Bingley and find out more about him and to introduce him to their daughters. It is either her marriage that she is worrying about or the prospect of her daughters’ marriages. Marriage is also presented as a key moment in the lives of women and this is shown by the fact that the only things that Mr and Mrs Bennett discuss in the first chapter of the book are their daughter’s possible marriages. The significance of marriage in
• In this sonnet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning wishes for her lover, Robert Browning to love her genuinely and unconditionally, and not superficially. This is interpreted through the line “Do not say I love her for her smile ... her look ... her way Of speaking gently ... for a trick of thought That falls in well with mine ...” • She also does not want him to love her out of pity, for she is in physical as well as emotional pain. “Neither love me for Thine own dear pity wiping my tears dry!” • E.B.B’s intention in this specific poem is to express the way she wants Robert Browning to love her. This suggests that Robert Browning’s affection towards her is not strong enough, nor believable. The reason for his lack of affection may be because E.B.B is being too demanding and obstinate of her own perspectives of what love is and how she would like to be loved.
However, both images trigger very different emotions from Duffy. BYWM is a very possessive poem, in which Duffy seems to have wanted to be a part of her mother’s life before she was even born, shown in the line ‘Even then I wanted the bold girl winking in Portobello’. She appears to regret the fact that she could not have been around to experience her mother’s childhood with her and be friends with the daring girl that she admires. Duffy also acknowledges that she was a very possessive child, ‘The decade ahead of my loud possessive yell’, but doesn’t see this as a problem, instead believing it to be normal for a child to be controlling of their mother. In TGT, the school photo remind Duffy of how much she hated her teachers at secondary school and why it was that she felt this towards them.
