Transcript of Love's Philosophy
Ex: "See the mountains kiss high heaven". It's giving mountains humans characteristics, and referencing to humans kissing.
Ex: "And the waves clasp one another... and the sunlight clasps the earth". The waves and sunlight are given human traits to symbolize how we would hug a beloved one. The author is longing for his life partner. His tone in the poem is very lonely and sad, he asks her questions and tries to figure out why they can never be. Especially when everything in nature has its pair. He wishes to just be with his loved one. By: Percy Bysshe Shelley What is love? How is love connected to nature and spirituality? What is the theme and tone of the poem? Connotation Connotations... Rhetorical questions: question asked solely to produce an effect or to make an assertion and not to elicit a reply.
Ex: "Why not I with thine?" He is not expecting an answer, he just doesn't understand why they cant be together.
Ex: "What are all these sweet kissings worth, if thou kiss not me?" He doesn't need to hear the answer to his question because he already knows the response. Connotations... Rhyme Scheme:the pattern of rhymes used in a poem.
ABABCDCD It is natural for everything in this world to have its pair. Everything in nature has its pair, its not unnatural to see a partner in everything, but humans are unnatural. We all have our partner but we choose not to accept him/her. We choose to make our life more difficult. Shift On the first stanza, Shelley is talking about how everything in nature has its pair. Also how nothing in the world is alone. Then on the last line on the first stanza it shifts; he is asking the woman he is in love with why they can be together. In the second stanza he switched back to talking about how all in nature has its pair, and again shifts to questioning her on her affections towards him. Paraphrase The fountains mingle with the river,
(The fountains flow with the river)
And the rivers with the ocean;
(As the rivers go with the ocean)
The winds of heaven mix forever,
(the wind mix forever in the sky)
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
(no one in this world is alone)
All things by a law divine
(Its natural for all things to have its purpose)
In one another's being mingle;--
(Everything goes together in nature)
Why not i with thine?
(Why are you with me?)
See! The mountains kiss high heaven,
(The mountains are able to kiss the sky)
And the waves clasp one another;
(the waves hug each other)
No sister flower will be forgiven,
(no sister would be forgiven)
If it disdained its brother;
(If she despises her brother)
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
(the sun brighten up the earth)
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--
(the moon shines on the sea)
What are all these kissings worth,
(but what is all this worth)
If thou kiss not me?
(If you refuse to be with me?) By: Jenny Castaneda, & Rebecca Sanhueza
