Love
Love Love What is love? It seems to be a pretty simple word, but there is so much meaning behind it. Love is difficult to define, difficult to measure, and frequently difficult to understand.

Love is passion that cannot be controlled. Both poems we have read, Waiting for Icarus and One Art, tell us how love alters human minds and h

The words that are written describing art have a purpose and a meaning but, through the words of Jarrell, Williams, and Auden words mean much more than a description.

Randall Jarrell is analyzed as “The one living poet who has written good poems that ordinary readers like without any trouble and understand without any trouble...
