The similarities of both works is the theme of Marriage, and true love. In the song "Still", Tamia is clearly singing about her marriage between she, her husband, and the true love that they share for one another. In William Shakespeare's " sonnet 116" Shakespeare is speaking his opinion about traditional marriage, and love which is very similar to Tamia's view on her marriage. Both works also describe unconditional love in very different, but similar ways. Tamia sings of how she, and her husband still love each other like the first day they met even though they both have aged, and have kids.
Compare how feelings towards another person are presented in “Hour” and “To His Coy Mistress” “Hour” by Carol Ann Duffy and “To His Coy Mistress” by Andrew Marvel, deal with feelings and emotions towards another person in different ways. In “Hour” the narrator describes an hour spent between her and her lover, and how the feeling of love they share between them is so strong it nearly manages to stop time. Whereas in “To His Coy Mistress” the narrator is telling the woman who he loves that she shouldn’t play hard to get because there isn’t enough time in the world. His feelings of physical passion grow throughout the poem as he tries to persuade her to have sex with him while they are still young and attractive. Form and structure are used effectively in both poems to show feelings and emotions to their lovers.
He uses persuasion at the start of the poem, but then starts charming his mistress by saying he’ll love her once they have sexual intercourse. One of the most obvious similarities between both poems are that they both have a male narrator. Both poems are also similar as they both contain lines about death. In Sonnet 116, Shakespeare is saying that if its true love what someone is going through then they shall love someone even until they die. “but bears it out even to the edge of doom” He is really saying, that no matter what happens through life, you shall love that person unconditionally even when they die.
Ever since the beginning of time, love has played an enormous role among humans. Everyone feels a need to love and to be loved. Some attempt to fill this yearning with activities and possessions that will not satisfy with activities in which they should not participate and possessions they should not own. In Andrew Marvell’s poem, “To His Coy Mistress,” the speaker encounters an emotion some would call love but fits better under the designation of lust for a woman. In contrast, the speaker of Robert Herrick’s poem, “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time,” urges virgins to marry, to make a lasting commitment in which love plays a vital role.
His honest personality is first witnessed when he expresses some of his true feelings and affection toward his wife inside their humble home. Two quotes found early in Act Two further illustrate this point. “I mean to please you Elizabeth” (p. 50) he later goes on to say, “ I think you’re sad again. Are you?” (p. 51) These two quotes taken best exemplify Proctor’s loving emotions toward his wife Elizabeth. Also, John Proctor is surprisingly sensitive and thoughtful.
The romantic love of Romeo and Juliet has become very popular and is the ideal example of star-crossed lovers. The love of family honor is what keeps these lovers apart: the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. The purpose of this essay is to provide examples of these two types of love, which will then be compared and contrasted. People should understand Romeo and Juliet, and further study its themes to build up a successful literature pathway. Romantic love is the most basic type, where two people have a mutual connection of love towards each other.
“Our Love Now”-Martyn Lowery In the poem, “Our Love Now,” written by Martyn Lowery, the poet effectively makes the two characters interesting and, hence, appeals to us as the reader. The poet establishes the poem as two lovers with conflicting thoughts; the persona wants to maintain the loving relationship, whereas the woman wants to stop the relationship and perpetuates that the relationship is “forever dead.” Lowery achieves the effect of making the characters interesting and by bringing into focus the two conflicting perspectives on the future of the relationship by making use of repetition, the usage of extended metaphors, and the overall structure of the poem. An aspect of the poem that makes the two characters thoroughly interesting is the poet’s usage of repetition. It can be observed that when the persona speaks, he makes use of the word “mend.” In the opening stanza, the persona claims that the “cut can be mended.” This is paralleled with the ending stanza of the persona where he says that “the breach” in the couple’s love “can be”, once again, “mended.” This repetition of the word “mended” shows his belief that the couple’s love can “heal” and that the “raging storm” or strife between the two “will soon be gone.” This makes the persona interesting to us as the reader and we see from this his relentless claims that the love between the two can be revived and will be “mended.” Repetition is also used distinctly in the woman’s dialogue, and the words “such is our love” is repeated. Interestingly, all but the last stanza of the woman’s dialogue contains the words “such is our love now,” whereas the last stanza merely says “such is our love.” This abrupt disappearance of “now” suggests that the woman feels that the loving relationship she had with the persona now belongs to the past, and this ultimately shows her reluctance to believe that the love can be
She showed her great love for her husband in another well-known poem she wrote called â€œTo My Dear and Loving Husband.â€ The first lines of this poem -â€œIf ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee,â€- make it clear that Bradstreet and her husband had a very loving marriage and that she was extremely happy (www.library.utoronto.ca). She wrote a similarly themed work about her children in poem called â€œIn Reference to My Childrenâ€ (www.ask.com). Anneâ€™s life in the colony also affected her poetry. This can be seen in her poem â€œUpon a Fit of Sickness,â€ in which she wrote about a time in which she came close to death when struck by a plague.
Allison Flynn English 204 Prof. Brophy November 28, 2012 Marriage; the everlasting unity of a woman and a man. It is the quintessential sign of love and devotion to another human being. Husbands and wives share and construct a life together. They build upon their feelings and mold their emotions into an understanding structure of unison. However, sometimes wives become stifled by their husband’s controlling hand.
But in their writings we also see them as very faithful and loving wives towards their husbands. Though Anne wrote a poem about her husband, "To my Dear and Loving Husband", we also see a small side of Mary's love for her husband. In Anne's poem, though she may seem more detached and forced, the meaning behind it all still reflects her love for her husband. An example of this is the line stating, "I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold". (To My Dear and Loving Husband.)
