Past a delicate stream, in an emerald green knoll lies the purported 'Noble Castle'.
Popular men and ladies from classical times wander this radiant place and lackadaisical chat about rationality. But then… this apparently lovely garden lies amidst Limbo, a kind of waiting room to hell.
In Inferno IV, Dante introduces the first circle of Hell, Limbo. It is a place of condemn but not physical torment. The people there couldn’t believe in the true religion (Christianism) because of their historical circumstances: they couldn’t be saved because they were born and died before the upcoming of the saver, Jesus. This is the place of babies who died before they were baptized, also. Both of these groups haven’t sin so they don’t deserve punishment, but they haven’t been introduced to the true religion, so they can’t be saved either. Dante establishes that the people there know they lack something but don’t know what, so “they have no hope but live in longing”.
Dante places in his Limbo the souls of great pagans who lived lives of extreme virtue and accomplishment. This differs from traditional conception of Limbo at the time. Theologians believed that only babies could be found there in 1300 because Christ took away with Him all the Biblical worthies between His death and resurrection. So, in Dante’s Limbo there are pagans, and he places them in a special place, a noble castle “within which is a beautiful meadow where the honorable souls are assembled”. He lists the names there, men and women of great virtue that summons cultural history, such as Homer, who by his work saved his cultural and historical legacy.
Probably a little too late, but "Brenton's poem includes the expected comparisons to the beauty of his wife's hair and mouth, but he goes beyond praising mere physical beauty to create a comparison about her thoughts. Brenton's poem reveals a modern outlook with his inclusion of less expected parts: her eyelashes, brows, and waist. Both Shakespeare and Spenser stick to the usual body parts: hair, eyes, cheeks, and breast. All express their love, but Shakespeare portrays his loved one as a "real" woman, not a perfect woman. Brenton's wife seems more real than Spenser's, who is idealized the most with rich comparisons like gold, rubies, and pearls. Brenton's poem also uses more modern and unexpected comparison: "the waist of an otter," "teeth like the tracks of white mice on the white earth," "shoulders of champagne." His images are more vivid because they are less familiar.
Feminist literature first emerged in the 1600s when Anne Bradstreet began writing poems of her marriage, family, and her everyday life in America. She described love and desire using metaphors and irony. In her poem, "A Letter to Her Husband, Absent Upon Public Employment," Bradstreet uses the metaphor of the earth and the sun to illustrate the theme that physical beings are dependent on one another. Without the sun, the earth remains cold and dark. She also uses figurative language to compare the human emotion of romantic love to love and devotion toward god.
