Remembrance Analysis



Author: poem of Emily Brontë Type: poem Views: 4


Cold in the earth—and the deep snow piled above thee,
Far, far removed, cold in the dreary grave!
Have I forgot, my only Love, to love thee,
Severed at last by Time's all-severing wave?

Now, when alone, do my thoughts no longer hover
Over the mountains, on that northern shore,
Resting their wings where heath and fern-leaves cover
That noble heart for ever, ever more?

Cold in the earth, and fifteen wild Decembers
From those brown hills have melted into spring:
Faithful indeed is the spirit that remembers
After such years of change and suffering!

Sweet Love of youth, forgive if I forget thee,
While the world's tide is bearing me along:
Sterner desires and other hopes beset me,
Hopes which obscure, but cannot do thee wrong!

No later light has lightened up my heaven;
No second morn has ever shone for me:
All my life's bliss from thy dear life was given,
All my life's bliss is in the grave with thee.

But when the days of golden dreams had perished,
And even Despair was powerless to destroy,
Then did I learn how existence could be cherished,
Strengthened, and fed without the aid of joy;

Then did I check the tears of useless passion,
Weaned my young soul from yearning after thine;
Sternly denied its burning wish to hasten
Down to that tomb already more than mine.

And even yet I dare not let it languish,
Dare not indulge in Memory's rapturous pain;
Once drinking deep of that divinest anguish,
How could I seek the empty world again?

her use of enjambment in connection to her theme of 'time' symbolizes her numbing mood and psychological distress as the voice 'remembers that After such years of change and suffering' she still feels the 'deep snow' separating her currently despairingly, disheartening life and all her joys and 'golden dreams' which she perceives to be 'cold in the grave' with her loved one. on the other hand, the mood of the poem changes dramatically from that of mourning to acceptance and moving on with the co-ordinate conjuncture 'But', which is similar to the philosophic thought that time enables the process of acceptance and healing.

she feels guilty because shes forgotten her lover and because she no longer misses him. this is evident where it says, \"have i forgot, my only love, to love thee?\". It makes complete sense, because when you forget the person that you once loved, they are truly gone. A person only really dies when their memory dies, not when their body turns cold.

I don\'t think anyone who hasn\'t lost someone they loved deeply can even begin to understand this poem, and all the intellectualized comments here demonstrate that amply.

I think \"emily\" has been over him for a while now. She doesnt miss him. she hates him. Either way i know some people who are to quick judge because they still write songs and hang out with their ex who have been over way long than Emily and her man....

The love of her life died 15 years ago. At first, she would morn and constantly think about him, their time together, and their lost dreams. The loss was so great, she felt there was nothing left in this world to live for. But now she\'s telling him after 15 years, she found other things in life that makes her want to continue living and while she\'s still faithful to him, she doesn\'t think about him constantly like before. In fact, if she were to weaken and go back to thinking about him all the time, it would depress her and remind her of all the love and joy she\'s missing in this world.

The speaker in Emily Bronte\'s Remembrance is actually Rosina the lover of king Julius of Gondal(a make-belief world created by Emily and her siblings. It is from Rosina\'s point of view 15 years after Julius\' death. It is indeed a touching pom about the lover\'s cold acceptance of the reality of life and death. It seems taht the speaker has \'died\' along with her beloved and is only living because she has realised the importance of \"existence\". Still, living \"without the aid of joy\" is as good as being dead that\'s why she wants to surrender to the \"divinest anguish\" rather than seeking the \"empty world\". I HOPE THIS HELPED!

Well i think that the poem does revolve around those two main themes; love and death which is a bittersweet mixture, well it sounds so tragic but at the same time, we get the impression that the author, Emily Bronte did have genuine feelings for this man. It reminds us so much of young people who feel so rejected and empty after experiencing a first time relationship.Anyway, the author does accept reality, the truth of life; death. However, we should be able to see that she relates death with the \"coldness of the earth\", creating a feeling of sadness and nostalgia in the reader and which makes us want to lament and grief as we go line by line. She also shows remorse when she mentions\"did i learn how existence could be cherished\", she has not lived her life as she should have and death has made her realize that life is priceless and weighs a lot in terms of value. Also, the mention of 15 wild Decembers might suggest that this is how long she has been suffering because the death of a loved one, someone she has come to know and love dearly and profoundly.
There are many things to criticize but i hope this might help you!!

Indeed, the penultimate post comments on Christina Rossetti\'s Remember , questionning about the way the feelings carry on after someone\'s death? Although near in their titles, those poems are really different.Even if the poem is written before Emily Brontë\'s well-known Wuthering Heights; this poem is clearly set in a \"wuthering height\'s landscape\". The narrator looks down from a hill , and the line \"fifteen wild Decembers\"(9) tells us 15 years passed between someone\'s death and the day on which this poem was written ( just as Lockwood, appearing 15 years later to know more about what happened,wanting the other\'s \"Remembrance\" to feed his knowledge of the story) HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL :)

I think the person posting on 2010-05-12 has got completely the wrong poem?
I\'ve looked through and can\'t find the quotations used anywhere?!

.: :.

The theme of this poem is love and death, it is based on a romance she once endured which allows her to express her personal and intimate feelings. The form of the poem is a sonnnt, this is traditionally associated with love poetry. They are used to express strong feelings and emotions. The sonnet is written using iambic pentameter which represents natural speech. The effect of using this device is that it makes it easier and relaxing to read and a conversational tone is used. The use of monosyllabic words adds to the simplicity of the piece allowing it to sound much more straightforward and natural.
"Remember me when im gone away" -the words gone away relate to death yet it is phrased in a way that makes it sound like a journey. "The silent land" -this is a euphemism for death. Death seems to be peaceful implying how she does not seem to be scared or afraid of death. "When you can no longer hold me by the hand" -this relates to both themes of death and love. The words "no more" highlight the issue of her not being there to share this touch. "Hold me by the hand" illustrates her love with someone. Her emotions are freely being expressed in that she will miss the touch between the two of them. "Yet if you should forget a while and afterwards remember, do not grieve" -she is trying to understand the grieving process that sometimes they will forget and think of the person a bit less. This shows how she is aware of reality and is accepting of the fact that her lover will forget yet she doesnt want him to be sad. "For if the darkness and corruption leave a vestige of the thoughts that once I had. Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad." Again there is reference to death and the grief the person will feel. Yet she does not want him to feel this emptiness. She does not want to be remembered in sucha negative nature. Instead would rather that he completely forgot her and was happy because she doesnt want him to be sad. this shows how selfless she is willing to be that she would rather him lead a happy life that to be sad when remembering her. However, it is obvious that she is not entierly convinced that she does not want to be remembered but she doesnt want her loved one to be sad remembering her -shes confused and unsure.
Throughout the poem she is conscious of morality and the effect it will have on close members. That they will suffer yet even though it expresses a sence of love she would rather they react positive than grieve. In this poem she considers others and put it into perspective.

Herself a victim of early tragic deaths, Emily Bronte has Gondal as the keepsake of childhood's heartfelt memories: of cherished feelings that sustain her satisfaction, and substitute for her normal joys. But remembrance has it's price to pay: life, though remainding tenable, and grieving and yearning being useless for the present, existence now moves her on--for having sensed that dwelling in the past can offer shelter, it does exact a savage price: draught too deeply, the fee itself is death. Her question of apportionments, the struggle, so precariously balanced, between smoldering despair and death, finds a measured satisfaction in living; Emily reveals her answer in the final verse.

Bronte uses many different technical devices to sophisticate her poem. This poem is written in Iambic pentameter and uses the ABAB rhyme scheme. She also uses repetition, "Cold in the Earth" from the first and third stanzas of her poem.
Interestingly, the poem is about a loved one, making the reader immediately consider a husband or a wife, but the author, Emily Bronte, never married. The narrator considers suicide, "Down to that tomb that already more than mine" and "How could I seek the empty world again". This poem leaves the reader with a very disheartening feeling and has a very grave, saddening ending line.

There's more to this poem than just a lost love-this poem is referring to Bronte's fantasy kingdom, Gondal, named after the hero of the kingdom. This poem has a double meaning as it is about the death of Gondal the hero, and it also symbolizes the death of her childhood.

The poem Rememberance by Emily Bronte is a poems of love and loss, and the whole poem is centred around the death of a loved one that occoured 15 years ago and she is only just getting over the death. She has convinced herself that she will never feel whol again without her loved one. That they will contine to love beyond the grave, and she claims that she will come to him soon, because she cannot face the empty world again without him by her side. This makes you think that she is thinking about commiting suscide knowing that she will never be happy unless she is with him, even if it mean s that they are together in death. This also continues on with the feeeling of loss and longing in the poem that the poems persona portrays.

i think this poem is about a playa hu done his girl over. the girl just cant get over it.Remembrance differs from recollection, being part of unpleasant memories. Vic readers would know this. Seasonal change of emotion, beginning in the cold and watery begining, finishing in the burning and golden of the end. Represents change of emotional view of herself.

This poem is a greatly distressing poem about Emily's personal life about a loved one. Whether this person was a mom, brother or sister, we can she how much she greived from losing them. While reading this I am touched on how much Emily is missing her loved one lost many years ago but just still recovering. I want to greive along with her and try to realte to her situation and you see how deep and grave the matter would have been for such a youn woman.

she is affraid to forget her love. that's why it is called rememberance and not memory. rememberance is thinking of something in an active way. she even wants to suffer if that means that she will remember her love.
you can see that clearly in stanza 8. "the world would be empty without anguish, because the anguish reminds er of him". the pain is the link between her and her love and she cherishes that.

Cold in the earth—and the deep snow piled above thee,
Far, far removed, cold in the dreary grave!
Have I forgot, my only Love, to love thee,
Severed at last by Time's all-severing wave?
Now, when alone, do my thoughts no longer hover
Over the mountains, on that northern shore,
Resting their wings where heath and fern-leaves cover
That noble heart for ever, ever more?
Cold in the earth, and fifteen wild Decembers
From those brown hills have melted into spring:
Faithful indeed is the spirit that remembers
After such years of change and suffering!
Sweet Love of youth, forgive if I forget thee,
While the world's tide is bearing me along:
Sterner desires and other hopes beset me,
Hopes which obscure, but cannot do thee wrong!
No later light has lightened up my heaven;
No second morn has ever shone for me:
All my life's bliss from thy dear life was given,
All my life's bliss is in the grave with thee.
But when the days of golden dreams had perished,
And even Despair was powerless to destroy,
Then did I learn how existence could be cherished,
Strengthened, and fed without the aid of joy;
Then did I check the tears of useless passion,
Weaned my young soul from yearning after thine;
Sternly denied its burning wish to hasten
Down to that tomb already more than mine.
And even yet I dare not let it languish,
Dare not indulge in Memory's rapturous pain;
Once drinking deep of that divinest anguish,
How could I seek the empty world again?
Rememberence is about Emily's mother who died when she was three.
