How Do I Love Thee? Let me Count the Ways by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
A flame of passion is contained within the heart, further is make do contained in a mere flame of passion? This timeless saying embodies the ultimate result of spang written by Elizabeth Barrett brown. How Do I Love Thee? let me Count the Ways is a poem bathed in hoar and fill up in sentimental avowals. This sonnet shows the perpetual love that brown sh bes with her economise and how that love jackpot never be destroyed by either power of human or spiritual nature (Elizabeth Barrett Brownings Sonnet 45). Based on answering one, seemingly simple yet complex, question, how do I love thee? (Browning Line 1) is what this poem is based on. utilise literary tools and techniques, Browning unleashes the powerful emotions that hide behind the ink that each word is devotedly written in.The title itself shows the numbers of ways that Browning loves her husband, so many that she must view them. The second line focuses on the reality of her love and the extensions of its outreach. Br owning uses anaphora as she repeats the sounds found in thee (Browning Line 1) and the (Browning Line 1). Her love is three dimensional and therefore real, in the sense that all real physical things in the universe are three dimensional. Breadth is width, a measurement of how far across her love is. Height and depth represent how far down and how far up her love is, in relation to the universe. Depth and breadth is an internal rhyme injected to create the essence of the sonnet.Browning continues explaining how her adoration is inexplicable even in the most spiritual of senses. Finding true bliss and balance is what this love has given her. Love is a feng shui of sorts. Through the use of alliteration, she explains My souls can reach, when opinion out... ...cribe the most elaborate of thoughts. At first, the reader feels as if they fully go steady the text but a deeper look exposes more than just a superficial love poem. The work doesnt seem like an accomplishment of fiction beca use the realities of the sentiments are absorbed within the text. In the end, Browning loves him freely, without coercion she loves him purely, without expectation of personal gain. Her love is a sacrificial love, trials or tribulations can never waiver it. Browning uses numerous poetic devices such as metaphors and alliterations to amplify the implications she intends for the reader to feel. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways is a fairy tale transcended into reality. Love knows no agent but yet defies all reason. This very saying is the crux of Browning poem. In the end, she shall but love thee better after death. (Browning Line 14).
