How do I love thee ? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of everyday's

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life !--and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.

.: :.

I tried to translate this into Italian. I'm bilingual, but I can't. For 'How', the way she writes it, there is no Italian word to convey it. This poem defies analysis. Analyze it and you lose the feeling. How do I love thee, let me count the ways. It's beautiful. I love thee to the level of every day's most quiet need. Feel that quiet need for yourself, and feel how love fulfils it. If you want to simply judge her as a woman, go be a psychotherapist. You envious of her or something, that you call her obsessed? Obsessive love destroys. Elizabet Barrett Browning was a woman whose love fulfilled her, and furthermore her love was reciprocated. If you want to enjoy the poetry, enjoy. Period.

I love the poem at first I can't relate because I was high school back then when i first read the poem. Since, I'm already college at this time,I fall inlove with a guy that I can do all things just for him. But I can't list what are the things that I can do for him cause my love for him is immeasurable. Even tii te end of time. Eventhough, were already broke-up If God's will and given me a chance who I want to be with...I still choose him.

.: sonnet xliii analysis :.

Even though she only has 14 lines, she manages to convey her unlimited love in so many ways. She uses some abstract, complicated ideas, like saying she loves him as far as her “soul can reach”, and she also uses simple comparisons; she says she loves him like “every day’s most quiet need”. The contrast of these two types of comparison conveys the feeling that no words could describe the intensity of her love

.: opps forgot the last word :.

This poem shows more than just a woman in love but also an obsession. She proclaims that everything that she is and everything that she can be is all going into the deepest love she can possess. The last line shows that love transcends death and the eleventh line shows that her whole life has been leading up to these feelings. The beginning of Browning’s sonnet “How do I love thee?” shows that she is actually speaking to a person. More than likely the person being referred to is her romantic interest. She goes on in the sonnet to express her affection by saying, “I love thee freely/I love thee purely/I love thee with a passion/I love thee with a love I seemed to lose.” These words show that she adores her lover with her whole self. However, towards the end of the composition she would die for her lover. As I said before, it seems that she is obsessed.
