Love and Disappointment By Nahian Hoque

This sonnet was written by William Shakesphere. The title "When in Disgrace With Fortune and Men's Eyes" shows that this poem was meant to be emotional. Shakesphere talked about his horrible luck referring to the title, "in disgrace with fortune." He's also in disappointment with "men's eyes" which really means that other people don't really like him, or see eye-to-eye with him. The author is trying to show a mental image of how depression gets to him. This poem connects to the theme of disappointment because that is how the speaker feels. He feels disappointed on his bad luck, comparing himself to others who are better. Throughout the poem the audiences feel empathy or pity on the speaker.

"The Kiss" by Robert Graves shows a main idea of a love that is not usual. The descriptive feelings shown in the first verse is very different from the rest of the poem. According to Line 17, the love is described as "Death" which may refer to a non existent love. The speaker creates the mood of anger towards love; or disappointment. And as you can see that this relates to the theme, because lines 22 through 24 has a tone of dismay when the speaker says, "You must lie alone, without hope, without life."

This poem called "Defeated" by Sophie Jewett has a subject of loss in love. Jewett was trying to show a mental image how getting defeated in something feels like, but when it comes to love, it's very different. Lines 8 and 9 might mean when the speaker loses in an argument, that's only when their significant other would be sweet and kind to them. This relates to the theme, love because love has many factors to it. And loss can be a factor. The speaker sets the tone of disappointment as the audience feel pity. The audience feel this way because line 7 states, "With not one splendid battle-song to sing you."

Rachel Sherwood wrote the poem "The Usual," which has a subject of the reality of a broken heart. A Broken heart may be considered as a disappointment. This poem is basically saying that when you are with someone for a long time patiently, finding out their true selves is a hard reality to accept and then you can get your heart broken. This relates to the theme of love and disappointment because the last line says, "broken dishes, wrecked cars," which can be assumed as disappointment; the line described the love at the end of the relationship.

"Hap," written by Thomas Hardy is about unfortunate chances. The tittle itself means chances. The poem just shows the amount of suffering the speaker had to go through his or her life. Hardy concluded God in the poem to show that the speakers bad luck was because of the misfortune god created. As the speaker has the tone of anger, they also sounded disappointed in the results of his misfortune. This is why it relates to the theme, a poem about a man disappointed on how his life as turned out.

"If No One Ever Marries Me" by Laurence Alma-Tadema has a subject of growing up and the fear of failure and disappointment. As a child, everyone dreams of their futures and how they want it to be. The speaker sets a very naive tone and lets the audience think this must've been from a child's point of view. Kids are usually carefree but this poem can refer to a child thinking about: what if she fails to get married and live happily? Or what would you do if you did fail? This poem relates to the theme of disappointment because the fear of failure the author tries to communicate by showing a mental image.

Henry VIII created this poem to create a subject of what people would do or react if they did find their true love. He explains that the outcomes of love may not always be great. But the last two lines also express how very little experienced the speaker is on love, reflecting on the last two verses. This relates to the theme of this project, love because it discusses the idea of inexperienced and new founded love.
