XIV (If thou must love me, let it be for nought) Analysis



Author: poem of Elizabeth Barrett Browning Type: poem Views: 36

If thou must love me, let it be for nought

Except for love's sake only. Do not say

"I love her for her smile--her look--her way

Of speaking gently,--for a trick of thought

That falls in well with mine, and certes brought

A sense of ease on such a day--"

For these things in themselves, Beloved, may

Be changed, or change for thee,--and love, so wrought,

May be unwrought so. Neither love me for

Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheek dry,--

A creature might forget to weep, who bore

Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!

But love me for love's sake, that evermore

Thou may'st love on, through love's eternity.

.: :.

I think that the meaning of this poem is that you should love someone not for certain things or by different \"criterions\" but from the deep of your heart, by everything he/she means to you.

I think that this poem is about the idea of love as being something should not be thrown around. she\'s saying love someone because you love someone not for just the sake of love.

I think what it just means is that true love is not on the appearances. True love is on the heart which will never change even in for the rest of their life. Unlike the others, that just love somebody because of something others don\'t have. I\'m deathheart676 ! seriously, i just broke with my girlfriend and I\'m not over with her !!

Browning has written this in a petrarchan sonnet, she is descibing how (for her) a man should and shouldnt love a woman. She belives is isnt based on the appearance, as she says "thoses looks can change with time". She only wants to be loved for love sakes only, nothing else.

.: :.

the rhyme scheme of this poem is abba abba cdcd ce.the tone of this sonnet is hesitant like the persona itself. she was hesitant for what robert browning can offer her because of her illness and she was older the robert that is why you can sense that she is not so sure about the real meaning of love. if robert might love her it should only be for love only not for anything else. love that is boundless, limitless and eternal..

.: :.

It is poem about how women can hurt men too. The persona talks of how if the subject must love her then let it only be for loves sake or for nought.
