The poem begins with the personification of the first useful object ?vacuum cleaner?. This shows the narrator?s possessive nature and shows that he is ready to accept all qualities of the woman. The word ?dust? is implied to be the negative qualities of the woman. The narrator is willing to ?breathe? all of it in and accept who she is. The second useful object the poet compares himself to is a ?ford cortina?. He brings in the imagery of a reliable car to show that he is trustworthy and will never ?rust?.

Discuss the extent to which psychologists have been able to explain love
"As you can see, psychologists have tried to explain love and it can be seen as true to an extent. Some models concentrate on differentiating between different types of love, which is useful and does give a greater understanding To define what love truly is however, is far too complicated. Psychologists can only go by what they are told & what they observe physically. In the end, love is love and there are no other words for it."
Compare the ways poets have written about love, bringing out different aspects of the theme
"I have evaluated the poems and the conclusion I have reached is all the poems have a structure and form, some of them are similar in structure and content, some only in theme, others though, are relatively similar in subject which can be humorous or sad. The writer can determine this by the style and content that he or she decides to use. Love poems can be categorised into differing themes of love, but all have certain things similar about them. Love is an emotion and as such evokes feelings on reading them.
Some make us happy others sad but all of them still relate to us emotionally even so long after they were written."
Compare the ways in which Kate Chopin and James Joyce portray Dorothea and Eveline
"In my opinion of the stories, both 'The Unexpected' and 'Eveline' give a very real image to the reader; it depicts the way that women were treated around this era. This is because both were offered so much, by respect and riches, and they both turn these opportunities down due to the fact that freedom is more important or a promise restricts them."
