Andrew Marvells To His Coy Mistress and John Donnes A Valedictorian:
Andrew Marvells To His Coy sporting lady and joke Donnes A Valedictorian Forbidding Mourning 1 may mark poetry as imaginative and creative writing which uses elements the likes of rhyme, meter, and imaginativeness to express personal thoughts, feelings, or ideas. Certain subjects recur frequently in poetry such as carpe diem, nature, death, and family. Andrew Marvells To His Coy Mistress and John Donnes A Valediction Forbiddmg Mourning, focus on the prevalent topic of whop. Although both poems strain the importance and meaning of love, the tone of for each one poem reveals differences with regard to the innovation and magnitude of the love the diction shows contrasting ways in which each poet incorporates love into the overall theme while distinct figurative run-in devices further convey the themes. All of these differences add to the understanding and effectiveness of the poems. In To His Coy Mistress, the speaker system does not conceive of true, ardent love to him, l ove does not go beyond the soil of physical beauty or, perhaps, the realm of his mistresss bedroom. The tone of the first stanza illustrates the insincerity and exaggeration of the speaker with comments like, An carbon days should go to praise / Thine eyes, and on thy forehead gaze / Two hundred to adore each breast... (13-15). Here, the speaker appears to be flirting and fawning upon his unripened mistress. The second stanza differs greatly from the first in that instead of using acclamation to seek love or sexual favors from his mistress, the speaker resorts to blatant honesty. One may describe the tone as altogether realistic, gloomy, and eerie. In this stanza, the speaker clearly explains that his love will diminish when his mistresss beauty fades as he say... ...d easily manipulated therefore, their love much like the gold can hold change. Again, in the .final three stanzas, Donne metaphorically compares the two lovers to a compass. As large as his lady remains firm (35 ) or fixed (27) like the fixed foot in the center of the circle, then the she can ask her loves return as he completes his journey, his path around the circle.Poems may bundle certain characteristics, but they often possess unique attributes.Andrew Marvells To His Coy Mistress and John Donnes A Valediction ForbiddingMourning, similarly concentrate on the subject of love. However, each poet contrasts in his conception of love and the way he chooses to disclose this conception through tone, diction, and other figurative language devices. By recognizing the differences, one comes to value and appreciate each poems significance.
