Throughout the poem Marvell’s man uses many different techniques to encourage the woman. Initially he uses extreme praise to win her over, then straight flattery, moving on to almost threatening her, and finally he begins to boast about himself to her. Robert Browing’s poem My Last Duchess is about the relationship between a Duke and his Duchess. In this poem, the Duke is speaking to his envoy, and I think that within the poem he describes how he killed her, what her personality was like and how he is arranging for his envoy to find him another Duchess. Already, there is a clear pattern shown in these poems in the relationships between men and women; the man has little respect for the female.
In 'Sister Maude' a much more destructive relationship between siblings is presented. Like 'Brothers', this poem hints at the way in which the move towards adulthood brings a distance between siblings. Christina Rossetti begins her poem “Sister Maude” with two similar rhetorical questions, asking who told her parents about her 'shame'. We do not know at this point what the narrator's shame is, but it gradually becomes clear that she was having an affair with a handsome man. In Victorian times when Rossetti was writing, this would certainly have been considered shameful.

My Last Duchess - YELLOW Macbeth - GREEN ‘My Last Duchess’ by Robert Browning is a poem which deals with the imaginary character of the Duke of Ferrara. In essence, the poem is a psychological portrayal of the Duke presented to the reader as if he or she is simply listening in on a conversation. As the poem unfolds, the reader becomes aware that the Duke is talking to an envoy from his fiancée’s family in order to make final arrangements for his new marriage. Thus, the nature of the discussion seems rather strange as the Duke is standing in front of a portrait of his former wife, recounting memories of his last marriage. The fact that the reader is able to get a strong sense of what the Duke is like, is testament to Browning’s skilful use of the dramatic monologue form, coupled with effective word choice and imagery.
One of Gerald’s early lines is: “I drink to you – and hope I can make you as happy as you deserve to be.” Gerald’s tone here is warm and affectionate; it seems that he wants the very best for Sheila. It is unthinkable, at this stage, that he would ever do anything to hurt or betray her. Similarly, Sheila jokes about going shopping for “[Gerald’s] benefit”. Sheila is naïve, quite immature for her age, and impressionable. She desperately wants to please her husband-to-be.
This theory is supported by Brett herself when she states, "Don't we always pay for all the things we do?... When I think of the hell I’ve put chaps through. I’m paying for it all now.” (Hemingway 34) Although she recognizes that she has been promiscuous, her admission does not slow her down in her perusal of male suitors. Jake even points out Brett’s behavior by claiming that she likes to “add them up” in reference to the men she sees, a claim which Brett cannot deny (Fitzgerald 30). Brett seems to find solace in knowing that she can entertain men at her will.

reveals not only the reason of the duke’s disapproval of his former duchess behavior, but aspects of his personality as well. The speaker is the Duke of Ferrara .
