Transcript of comparative essay writing

What does this look like ...
How is love presented in Porphyria's Lover and one other poem from your anthology?

Porphyria's Lover and The Farmer's Bride both present the dangerous side of love. The use of colour imagery in both poems shows how the male character's pose a threat to the women. For instance in Porphyria's Lover, Browning refers to the 'rosy' colour of Porphyria's cheeks whereas Mew creates imagery of the berries reddening as his frustration with his wife increases. The use of the colour red reflects the danger of love as its connotations portray the unpredictable and threatening personality of Porphyria's killer: he is passive through most of the poem before he unexpectedly lashes out. Meanwhile the use of red in The Farmer's Bride shows the increasing sense of sexual frustration and dangerous obsession: Mew may be suggesting that the Farmer will take his wife's virginity by force if she continues to refuse him. In both poems, the women are presented as victims of love as they both get caught up in the danger that can come from passion.
