    A critical appreciation of 'to my mother' by George Baker.

    4 star(s)

    This was probably some time between 1942 and 1943 when Baker was living in the U.S.A and Canada. The poet's intension is not only to pay tribute to his mother but, more specifically, as the poem is addressed 'to' her, to send her his love and expression of his firm belief that she will 'move' from 'mourning to morning', in other words, that she will be lifted out of her present state of grief over a bereavement to the light, hope and life associated with 'morning' or a new day.

  • 'The sonnet is the perfect poetic form to express love.' Evaluate up to four sonnets of your choice in light of this quotation.

    "In conclusion, the sonnet is the perfect poetic form to express love. This is because of its tight, compact structure, its repetition and its rhythm. The imagery used in sonnets is also an exceptional structure of writing and it makes the sonnet extremely romantic by comparing love to a tangible item. This is because most substantial objects symbolise what the sonneteer is trying to express. Wilfred Blunt mainly writes examples of imagery and Elizabeth Barrett Browning deeply expresses her passion. Throughout the variety of love sonnets, the tight, compact structure will always remain there. This helps the sonneteer craft their writing into fourteen lines making the wording extremely expressive and significant. Repetition enforces on the words repeated making the reader focus on either the word or the phrase. Overall, the sonnet is the most perfect poetic form to express love."
