The Development of Woman and Love Theme From the Medieval to the Romanticism Era
Merciles Beaute talks about a woman and Chaucer as her big admirer. This poem originally consists of nine stanzas with different sum of lines each. Chaucer expresses how enormous his love was and praises his woman for her uncontainable beauty. However, the woman rejects him and makes him feel broken hearted, just like what she always does to every men. After his heart was torn into pieces, he gets himself free from loving the woman, then moved on. Different with Merciles Beaute, Annabel Lee that consists of five stanzas had a different conflict in the plot, although both share the same ironies; loosing love and getting heart broken. Poe was not rejected by his woman, instead he was loved as big as he loved. He and his woman had a great time loving each other. Tragically, the woman died while the two were madly in love, which left Poe in a deep desperation for everything reminded him of her.
