    Porphyrias Lover

    Porphyria’s lover: Like ‘My Last Duchess’‚ this poem is an example of a dramatic monologue – a poem in which the impression the speaker unwittingly gives is rather different from the picture they intend to present. Initially‚ the poem appears to be built around a contrast between the storm outside and the cosy domestic scene within the cottage that Porphyria and her lover share. But there are unsettling notes from the very start –the storm is strangely personified in terms of sullenness‚ ‘spite’

    Body of a Lover: An Analysis of Marguerite Duras’ The Lover Sexuality is evident in every form of life. Plants‚ animals‚ humans all actively engage in sexual practices; however‚ it is only mankind that offers various forms and perspectives of sex and its subcategories. Much focus of sex is its effects on the body and its senses. The focus of the human body‚ its sensuality and also the harm that is inflicted upon it‚ is one of Marguerite Duras’ themes throughout her work The Lover. The paradoxical

    Dr. Amy Robinson Survey of British Literature‚ 1780-1900 November 7‚ 2011 Deadly Love Porphyria’s Lover by Robert Browning is surprising. The poem speaks through the mind of a man who kills his lover‚ Porphyria by strangling her with her own hair. Although my initial reaction to this poem was that the killer was insane and evil‚ a second reading revealed another meaning. Porphyria’s lover killed her‚ not out of malice but out of love for her. Throughout the poem‚ there are references to

    Porphyria's Lover

    Porphyria’s Lover is a typical dramatic monologue by Browning‚ where we get an insight into the narrator’s thoughts. In the poem‚ we get an insight into the thoughts of a man who kills his love interest out of jealousy: “Nor could to-night’s gay feast restrain.” This gives the impression of Porphyria living a very high status life‚ just coming from a party‚ and the narrator being her love interest that she is sneaking away from her life to see. On the other hand‚ Porphyria’s death could have been

    In “Porphyria’s Lover”‚ the center of the speaker’s focus is the beautiful‚ blooming girl called Porphyria. The speaker acknowledges the girl’s passion and contrasts her against the storm outdoors. I believe the emphasis on the raging weather is used repeatedly to create the feeling of stark opposites. Even though she is wet and cold‚ Porphyria is glowing with passion. She is a roaring fire inside the cozy cottage. Then pride and pain come into the picture and the emphasis is put on the moral responsibilities

    Educational Series‚ 1993). At the time this letter was written Lawrence was fictionalizing his relationship with his mother‚ as well as the rest of his family‚ in the novel Sons and Lovers . In the novel the Lawrences would be named the Morels‚ but though the names are different there are many parallels between Sons and Lovers and Lawrence’s own life. These parallels are what make the novel truly autobiographical. However‚ the strongest evidence of the autobiographical nature of this novel exists in the
