A Red, Red Rose Analysis



Author: poem of Robert Burns Type: poem Views: 40


O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it ware ten thousand mile.

Robert Burns: A Red, Red Rose
In a “Red Rose”, traditional similes and comparisons perform a serious function. In the rose, the beautiful words and tune to their own image of the face and of the person. Burns is any man in love with any woman, yet in the act of artistic creation he is more truly and more intensely himself than at any ordinary moment of daily life. Burns uses several poetic techniques such as metaphor, personification, rhyme and rhythm to explain love.
Burns try to take attention people to what is love? It is one of the most difficult questions for the mankind. Centuries have passed by, relationships have bloomed and so has love. But no one can give the proper definition of love. To some Love is friendship set on fire for others Maybe love is like luck. You have to go all the way to find it. Burns try to explain his love with a rose.
His love also like the music which give intensive emotion. His love will not finishes describing by something that vanish the end of the work such as sea. It is our basic need and for him same thing as well. Her sea would disappear the end of world and he would love her till the end of the world. There are many signs that indicates his love will not end for example sea gangs dry, rocks melted by the sun. It seems he been away with her but committed that he will with her definitely only for short period of time. A man who felling love with her describes the love endless story like the signs also shows that he will not give up the end of the world. He is missing her even they are away each other.
“Till a\' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi\' the sun;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o\' life shall run.’’
Burns used Rhyme (matching of final vowel or consonant sounds in two or more words) and Rhythm (recurrence of accent or stress in lines of verse) poetic techniques above mentioned line. For example “sun” after that “run” we can understood from the here.
“And I will luve thee still, my dear, While the sands o\' life shall run”
The song now comes back down to earth a little as the promise of love \'while the sands o\' life shall run\' starts to involve some commitment before it gets too carried away in its own similes and metaphors. We now have his promise of love and how it will endure whatever ‘the sands of life’ will inevitably throw at him. It\'s a nice use of the word \'still\' taken both as \'no matter what\' and also \'still\' as in \'calm\' and helps to highlight a more warm in the promise of his love for her. The metaphors being used (love like a rose) show that love can be physical and emotional. When it is physical is the sense, such as the rose and wither. Just as people born, live, and die. The poem really speaks of the speaker\'s eternal love for his dear, no matter how far apart they are using metaphors.
O, my luve is like a red, red rose,
That\'s newly sprung in June.
His feelings of Love as compared to a flower. He simulate his love a red rose because red rose very beatiful flower. He use “That\'s newly sprung in June.” because red rose generally come out in June. I think that he love in summer especially in June when he look around her he has seen a red rose.
In conclusion In \"A Red Red Rose\" Burns teach us the importance of love is hard to accept those memories if fall in love to someone. The similes he uses are meant to show us the grandness of love. He compares his love to a rose and to a melody, showing us that love is beautiful and precious. Burns also shows us how love transform a red rose. His love crash in summer but they are quite far each other.

the poem is telling about the strong yet tender love about a moan toward a lady. the poet uses the common imagination about love by \"RED ROSES\".Because rose symbols love and red symbols passionate and strong.

You\'re all maniacs. I\'ve studied this and it\'s about how Burns is going to Jamaica but he\'s saying he\'ll come back one day even though he\'d just been rejected by Jean Armour\'s parents when he\'d asked to marry her.

Am I the only one who reads this as his last vow of love to his dying lover? "and i will love thee STILL, my dear". Poetic word choice is never an accident. The word still in a poem is most often used to evoke death. "And fare thee weel"."when the sands o' life shall run"....She is dying and he is telling her someday they will be together again - the afterlife for him is like a 10,000 mile journey (a long time to be apart).

Robert Burns wanted to marry his love who was pregnant with his twins, but the 'father-in-law' would not allow it. Burns became a literary success and did indeed return to marry his love.
This is a story he has lived, and thus his understanding of the complex and competing images.

I believe that the red red rose is about a sailor going on a voyage and reminiscing a bout his love. He also says farewell to her and the diction of the poem also makes you beleive his going abroad on sea.

This poem reminds me od the poem "Follower" by Seamus Heaney, becouse of its structure, based in siple, and even stanzas, with an even number of lines. As in Seamus's poem, The first letter of each line is a capital letter which reminds us that the poem is meant to be red aloud (the reader raises his voice seeing the capital letter as he starts a line).
This poem has also a bit of Benjamin Zephenias's "Dis Poetry" by the way in which it's written-non standard english. It's a very personnal poem.
In it, Robert Burns talks about his love, starting out with two similies in the 1st stanza: he compares love to a "red red rose", often seen as the symbol of love, and the cliché gift for lovers; and as a "melody that's sweetly played in tune", giving us the idea of the sweetness of his love. The fact that he sais "that's newly sprung in june", explains how "young" his love is, how recent it is. In the first stanza, the general subject is his love.
In the second stanza, instead he starts talking about his love Towards her, not forgetting the passage of time: "Till the seas gang dry".
The third stanza is full of metaphores. There is syntactical repetition, and mirroring between the second and tghe third stanza. He is insisting on the treustworthy of what he is saying "Till' a' the seas gang dry...". And he is telling her the magnitude of his love.
Finally, in the forth stanza, he ends up with a promise- that he will love her even with the passage of time-, along with the repetition of "And fare thee weel".

.: Analysis :.

One of the most famous songs that Robert Burns wrote for this project and first published in 1794 was “A Red, Red Rose.” Burns wrote it as a traditional ballad, four verses of four lines each.
“A Red, Red Rose” begins with a quatrain containing two similes. Burns compares his love with a springtime blooming rose and then with a sweet melody. These are popular poetic images and this is the stanza most commonly quoted from the poem.
The second and third stanzas become increasingly complex, ending with the metaphor of the “sands of life,” or hourglass. One the one hand we are given the image of his love lasting until the seas run dry and the rocks melt with the sun, wonderfully poetic images. On the other hand Burns reminds us of the passage of time and the changes that result. That recalls the first stanza and its image of a red rose, newly sprung in June, which we know from experience will change and decay with time. These are complex and competing images, typical of the more mature Robert Burns.
The final stanza wraps up the poem’s complexity with a farewell and a promise of return.
