Some of His poems : • Love’s Lovers • Lost Days • The One Hope • Love And Hope • A Little While • Silent Noon • And the one we are talking about “ sudden light”
Dante Gabriel Rossetti(1828-1882) I HAVE been here before, But when or how I cannot tell: I know the grass beyond the door, The sweet keen smell, The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.
You have been mine before,— How long ago I may not know: But just when at that swallow's soar Your neck turned so, Some veil did fall,—I knew it all of yore.
Has this been thus before? And shall not thus time's eddying flight Still with our lives our love restore In death's despite, And day and night yield one delight once more?
These line are taken from Sudden light. It was written by Dante Rossetti in Victorian Era. • There are some Victorian features in this poem. First there is use a nostalgia , For example, (6-7) Second, there is use of transients ,For example, (13-15). Third, there is a realism ,For example,(13).Forth there is a use of reform , for example in line (13).
“We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering - these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love - these are what we stay alive for.”
