John Donne. The Flea THEMES Erotic love: lines Religion and Marriage: lines Erotic love and Religion: lines Erotic Love Virginity as a trivial matter how little that which thou deniest me is (l. 2) And this, alas! Is more than we would do' (l. 9) Mixed blood (sexual act, family bloodlines) And pamper'd swells with one blood made of two (l. 8).   The speaker in Donnes poetry is a theatrical character, constantly in different situations, and using different roles to suit the action. He can take on the role of the womanizer, as in The Indifferent, or the faithful lover from Lovers Infiniteness, but the speaker in each of these poems is always John .

Restore thine image, so much, by thy grace, That thou mayest know me, and I’ll turn my face. A serious illness that Donne suffered in produced a still more startling poetic effect.

Restore thine Image, so much, by thy grace, / That thou may’st know mee, and I’ll turne my face. — Goodfriday,ll. 41–2. - Explore Birdie's board "John Donne", followed by people on Pinterest.

The Poems pp Ibid pp Ibid p lines Ibid pp imagery in the poetry of John Donne will concentrate mainly on the the image of God, is the book whose processes are the pages whereon The image "blood" as a symbol of the salvation of man through the sacrifice of Christ on the cross was a comonplace of the Christian.

His poetry some times and in some of his sonnets becomes the incarnation of his salvation, he begs God to be always a magnet for his solidified heart, to rip him away from sin.

In "sonnet 2"Donne wishes God to combat for him. Now poetry becomes the model and frame for his own salvation.

'Remember' - Imagery, symbolism and themes Imagery and symbolism. The hand - The speaker anticipates a time when her lover will no longer be able to ‘hold' her ‘by the hand' (line 3).

The image of holding hands is one which is employed throughout the poetry of Rossetti's brother, Dante Gabriel, and is often used to indicate the first manifestations of love between a man and woman. Salvation to all that will is nigh.

Annunciation. Salvation to all that will is nigh, That All, which always is All everywhere, Which cannot sin, and yet all sins must bear, Which cannot die, yet cannot choose but die, Loe, faithful Virgin, yields himself to lie In prison, in thy womb; and though he there.

Biblical imagery in metaphysical poetry. The following images recur frequently in English literature: Apocalyptic language.

Apocalypse is the Greek word for apocalyptic language of the Book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible (containing visions of the end of time) and of other Bible passages have always had a profound effect on the Christian imagination.

O thinke mee worth thine anger, punish mee, Burne off my rusts, and my deformity, Restore thine Image, so much, by thy grace, That thou may’st know mee, and I’ll turne my face.

- 14 - John Donne: Holy Sonnets GOOD FRIDAY, Verse 1: I fix my eye on yours and there I pity my image (my reflection) burning in your eye, and when I look beneath your eye I see my image again, drowned in a transparent tear.

If you possessed the art of witchcraft and were able to kill by creating and marring images, think how many ways there are by which you could carry out that murder. The speaker in John Donne’s “The Funeral” appears to have reasoned through the problem of death. He writes that “Whoever comes to shroud” him after he passes should not disturb “That subtle wreath of hair” which adorns his arm; he attests that the mystical bracelet, a prize given to him by a beloved mistress, will “keep [his] limbs from dissolution” (lines 1, 3, 8).

From the study of imagery in the poetry of Francis Thompson, it may be concluded that for him poetry was a means of expressing the most important message to lankind — the magnificence of the eternal world to show forth a shadow of that infinite beauty that awaits the just.

For him this was the dominant message conveyed in his work. At the round earth's imagined corners, blow Your trumpets, angels, and arise, arise From death, you numberless infinities Of souls, and to your scattered bodies go, All whom the flood did, and fire shall, o'erthrow, All whom war, dearth, age, agues, tyrannies, Despair, law, chance, hath slain, and you whose eyes, Shall behold God, and never taste death's woe.

John Donne (between 24 January and 19 June – 31 March ) was an English poet, satirist, lawyer and priest. He is considered the pre-eminent representative of the metaphysical poets. His works are noted for their strong, sensual style and include sonnets, love poetry, religious poems, Latin translations, epigrams, elegies, songs, satires and sermons.

In referring to Donne's book as his "Emblem," Walton merely repeats more artfully what the other poets had said: a direct relationship exists between Donne's life and his art.

The poetry is a representation, an image, of the poet. John Donne is, with apologies to my unintentional namesake, my absolute favorite poet. He covers all the big three topics that great poetry should - Love, Death, and God - and, more often than not, he's covering all three at the same time in the span of 14 short, beautiful little lines of epic proportion/5(85).

Helen Gardner enlightens us by stating, "Some religious be regarded as a species of love-poetry; but Donne's is not of that kind. The image of Christ as. Verse - Restore unto me the joy of thy me back that "joy" which was mine when I was conscious of thy favour, and felt that thou wert my Strength and my Salvation (Psalm ; Psalmetc.).And uphold me with thy free spirit.

There is no "thy" in the original; and it is his own spirit, not God's Spirit, of which the psalmist here speaks. Thine in life, and thine in death, Thine in every fleeting breath, Thou my hope and joy alone: Saviour, let thy will be done. —Octavius Winslow Loneliness.

White, editor of Sacred Poetry in the Olden Time, assists our study of this image by referring his reader to Thomas Campbell's "To the Rainbow," which rejoices that God never "lets the type grow pale with age/ That first spoke peace to man."
