In his poem, Daffern writes, “We need to keep balance in our lives / fire and water duality / kindness in our hearts / passion in our work” (Daffern 16-9). As Daffern wrote, it is necessary to maintain a balance of these forces because fire and water compensate for what their counterpart lacks. Likewise, Montag finds this balance while working with his mentor, Faber, asserting “He would be Montag-plus-Faber, fire plus water, and then, one day... there would be neither fire nor water, but wine” (Bradbury 99). Fire and water as a pair create something new. Faber deters Montag's impulsiveness and Montag makes up for Faber’s cowardice. This relationship is essential for Montag as it helps him find the knowledge, confidence, and resolve to tread a new path in life. Despite fire and water being conflicting forces, they can also complement each other to create a better result. In the end, Daffern and Bradbury draw upon this idea by juxtaposing the serenity of water and the vigor of fire, which Montag personally experiences and which Daffern relates to the implacable nature of
This poem can be a reminder and an expression that love is simply unfair and unjust. It conveys how dangerous love can be and how toxic it actually is. Eday uses words throughout the poem that do not just create an image for the reader, but also create a
Beginning early in the poem and used heavily throughout, imagery and personification are utilized to exemplify the lovers' argument. The belief that love is never ending is created through never ending connotations, "I'll love you, dear, I'll love you Till China and Africa meet, and the river jumps over the mountain and the salmon sing in the street." The lover uses images of the impossible such as fish singing, the laws of physics breaking, and distant continents meeting. This strengthens the original belief that love is eternal and superior to time itself. These tasks are nearly impossible and the idea of love one day ending is equated with them.
The love between the two seems that it will be eternal. Time seems to stand still in this poem, seizing a moment between two lovers and accentuating it with nature’s majesty.
poem wherein she’s revealing her never-ending love, devotion, and appreciation for her spouse. The fact that she was born around the seventeenth century could mean it is puritan culture for women to remain reserved, regardless of how they may truly feel; however, she makes it her obligation to make her husband aware of feelings, whether positive or negative. She uses figurative language and declarative tone through imagery, repetition, and paradoxes to send her message. "To My Dear and Loving Husband" can be interpreted in many ways by many different people depending how it is initially read. This uncertainty allows the poem to be interpreted on a surface level and on a deeper level.
Through the use of poetic devices such as repetition or alliteration, the author originally describes what love is not capable of providing and defines love as unnecessary but by the end of the poem, the author reveals that love has some value.
Love is not always an easy adventure to take part in. As a result, thousands of poems and sonnets have been written about love bonds that are either praised and happily blessed or love bonds that undergo struggle and pain to cling on to their forbidden love. Gwendolyn Brooks sonnet "A Lovely Love," explores the emotions and thoughts between two lovers who are striving for their natural human right to love while delicately revealing society 's crime in vilifying a couples right to love. Gwendolyn Brooks uses several examples of imagery and metaphors to convey a dark and hopeless mood that emphasizes the hardships that the two lovers must endure to prevail their love that society has condemned.
This statement is when she gives this perspective of being in debt to her husband because she feels like her love, which is compared to riches and nature at the beginning of the poem, is not enough for him. The reader gains insight from this line that this relationship may not be as healthy as it seems. It does not seem right to compare who loves each other more in the relationship. If one really loves a man, the feeling of guilt should not exist because the other feels as if their feelings are not
and more specifically Peace Like a River, imagination is introduced into the novel through an exceptional movement, known as Romanticism. Romanticism revolved around a new form of writing resulting in a major shift between faith in the matter and faith in the senses, and mainly pertains to the individual, intuition, and imagination. Clearly it can be argued that Romanticism is a major attribute and strong support system in the novel Peace Like a River, by its use of imagination. Reuben’s “description” of Davy as “an awed hush…” when he enters the courtroom explores the possibility of what is expected isn’t always what is. As well, Reuben’s views and thoughts of what Mr. Ford’s character and disposition appeared to be even though he hadn’t even met the man. Finally, Swede’s ballads and tales about Sunny Sundown clearly describe the Romantic ideas and elements such as imagination. Therefore, it is quite clear that Leif Enger’s novel, Peace Like a River, is most definitely a Romantic novel with the element of imagination, due to the three factual events that occur: Reuben’s view over Davy when presented in the courtroom, Reuben’s description over Lonnie Ford without even meeting, and Swede’s ballads
“Love, thick and dark as Alaga syrup, eased up into that cracked window. I could smell it – taste it – sweet, musty, with an edge of wintergreen in its base – everywhere in that house. It stuck, along with my tongue, to the frosted window panes. It coated my chest, along with the salve, and when the flannel came undone in my sleep, the clear, sharp curves of air outlined its presence in my throat” (Morrison 12). This passage is poetic in that it uses long descriptive passages about love.
This poem keeps you on the edge wondering what is going to happen next from the second that it mentions tigers you are curious to find out if the speaker is talking about literally or figuratively. In about the sixth line I came to the conclusion that the tiger is the woman's significant other. I really liked this poem because it was so powerful saying that even when the aunt is dead that she will still be married but, her significant other will walk around as if nothing had even happened, and he will move on. I liked this because it is something that happens in life that is inevitable. Someone you love will pass or go away and you will be forced to move on and continue your life almost as if it had never
The title, To my Dear and Loving Husband, clearly signifies that this poem was intended for her husband alone. Bradstreet did not live in a time where woman authors would have been very highly respected for their work; this allowed her the opportunity to create very personal pieces because she believed that they would never be published. If Bradstreet had intended for her poetry to become available for the public she would have been forced to write much differently. Bradstreet understood the implications of writing her true emotions and never would have done so if she had not felt that they would have been kept safe from the scrutiny of her fellow puritans. The fear of being ridiculed, banished or killed would have stopped Bradstreet from ever composing poetry for the public as racy as the poems she created for her family especially her husband. Due to the fact that she believed no one would read this poem besides her husband she was able to write more closely to how she truly felt without fear or trepidation, this is apparent in the fact that this particular poem is much different from many of her other poems.
