Show how these poets illustrate different aspects of complete in theirpoems. How do the poets communicate thoughts and feelings by the wordsand the images they use?The poems I confine read arePorphyrias Lover by Robert Browning,The Lady Of Shalott by Alfred Lord Tennyson,The Eve Of St. Agnes by John Keats,A Trampwomans Tragedy by doubting Thomas Hardy.A. -It is evident that in the four poems I have read, there are differentaspects of love shown in each. In Porphyrias Lover, Browning putsacross some quite dark kinds of love obsessive, jealous andpossessive love. I use the word dark, because in the poem, a clearlyinsane man kills his lover Porphyria, to secure completely her love forhimself, And give herself to me forever. The man is besotted withPorphyria, but in an extremely selfish way. He thinks that she isseeing someone else, so he kills her to observe her love for himforever,That moment she was mine, mine, fair, Perfectly pure and good Ifound A thing to do, and all her hair In one long icteric string Iwound Three times her little throat around, And strangled her.This theme of tainted love is continued in A Trampwomans Tragedy,with jealous love also occurring in this poem. The trampwomansboyfriend became jealous after she started to flirt with jeeringJohn. Consequently, the boyfriend stabbed and killed John.Then up he sprung, and with his knife - And with his knife He let protrudejeering Johnnys life,In this poem, the jealous love is basically the same as in the last. Acharacter is worried about their lover betraying them for someoneelse. In A T. s Tragedy, this is shown by the line, my loversdark distress. Teasing about love is also addressed... ..., Burned like one burning flame together.Keats, in The E. Of St. A., uses a metaphor, Musics grandtongue, to describe how loud and far reaching the music is to thebeadsman. You can tell he feels sad that he is out in the cold, andpeople near are dancing and having fun. Keats also uses alliterationin des cribing the food Porphyro gets for Madeline, making it soundtasty, jellies soother than the creamy curd.In A T.s T., Hardy blends in some symbolism, which adds an extra genius of sadness to the end of the poem. It helps to describe thetrampwomans unhappiness and loneliness, after losing all of herfriends, The red moon low declined.Although all the poems are based around love, and most have thislinked with death, they are all subtly different. Each highlights adifferent aspect of love, which affect people in different ways.
