"Dark Paradise" touches on reoccuring themes of lost love, death, and mourning. Del Rey uses these three key experiences to explain her emotional state at the time.
Theme Statement: "Dark Paradise" by Lana Del Rey explores the loss of a significant other, and the difficulty in overcoming the loss.
Some examples are:
Simile
: "Everytime I close my eyes, it's like a dark paradise."
Assonance
: "All my friends ask me why I stay
strong
, tell 'em when you find true love it loves
on
"
Synecoche/Personification
: "Your soul is haunting me and telling me that everything is fine"
Oxymoron
: "Dark paradise"
Allegory
: "I'm lying in the ocean, singing your song"
I chose "Dark Paradise" because although it is an upbeat song, Del Rey still manages to capture a deeper meaning through her use of poetic and literary devices. Though many people think of her as just another female artist, her music proves her knowledge in not only music itself, but in culture and literature as well.
