Assonance:Repeated vowel sounds Gothic Qualities in the Works of Poe "Porphyria's Lover" — Vastly Misunderstood Poetry [In September 2011 a reader wrote into provide evidence that contradicts this interpretation.] obert Browning's "Porphyria's Lover" was initially entitled "Porphyria" when in 1836 it first appeared within the Monthly Repository. It had great appeal to its later Victorian audience who was shocked by the description of Porphyria's death. As is often the case, discourse can surround a work that is misunderstood. I respectfully submit that, early on, a link in the chain of reasoning was somehow missed and the path leading to a proper conclusion regarding that strangulation went undiscovered. Hopefully, all that will change following this interpretation because there does exist within the poem a detectable truth regarding why "Porphyria's Lover" killed her, a reason that, until now, has gone completely unnoticed. The rain set early in tonight, The sullen wind was soon awake, It tore the elm-tops down for spite, And did its worst to vex the lake: I listened with heart fit to break.

Elements of the Gothic Novel Robert Harris Version Date: June 15, 2015 The gothic novel was invented almost single-handedly by Horace Walpole, whose The Castle of Otranto (1764) contains essentially all the elements that constitute the genre. Walpole's novel was imitated not only in the eighteenth century and not only in the novel form, but it has influenced the novel, the short story, poetry, and even film making up to the present day. Gothic elements include the following: 1. Setting in a castle. The castle may be near or connected to caves, which lend their own haunting flavor with their darkness, uneven floors, branchings, claustrophobia, and mystery. Translated into the modern novel or filmmaking, the setting might be in an old house or mansion--or even a new house--where unusual camera angles, sustained close ups during movement, and darkness or shadows create the same sense of claustrophobia and entrapment. 2. In modern novels and filmmaking, the inexplicable events are often murders. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 1.

Love Song by William Carlos Williams I lie here thinking of you:— the stain of love is upon the world! Yellow, yellow, yellow it eats into the leaves, smears with saffron the horned branches that lean heavily against a smooth purple sky! There is no light only a honey-thick stain that drips from leaf to leaf and limb to limb spoiling the colors of the whole world— you far off there under the wine-red selvage of the west!
