having to spend a lot of money or time trying to do so. In Sonnet 43, the character has many feelings for her partner. Similar to Sonnet 18, she is trying to convince him of her love. By referring to the ‘sun’ and ‘candlelight’ and loving him ‘better after death’, proves that she will love him forever (Barret 2007). However, this too may bring out the dissention between the lovers. Loving better after death could be interpreted into a relationship filled with trouble.

Surname 4 Social and Moral Implication Sonnet 43’s first line is urged to attract different emotions and thoughts. It is not outright clear whether it is a rhetoric question or rather a sentence that articulates an impossibility. The subsequent calculation of instances by Browning introduces a different concept. With the love and relationship challenges that Browning was going through, the concept behind selecting a deceptive title in order to cover up for the drama-filed life was not morally right. Even so, we cannot infer the intentions due to the gist perceived from the sonnet. It is contradicting to depict love as something that cannot be measured yet go ahead and give reasons why to love.

On the other hand, Neruda’s sonnet 18 brings out a contrast that compares to good and bad. On one end, the author has expressed his love that is much more precious than topaz, a precious stone and salt-rose which is a very precious red rose. On the same note, the author talks about the shadow and the soul which introduces to us the contrast of light and darkness. In other words, the author depicts love as a moral concept that ought to be embraced. Contrary he also hints that love too can be “dark” because it can be obsessive and overwhelming (Neruda 1976). There are emotions for love itself, too, in each of these pieces. In Sonnet, the author sees love as from now and then like a hostage, love being a times a beggar, yet she still cares deeply about love in the way that love is important and can give her and the lover the courage to fight the moment. Again, it's like she thinks she has to buy time with resources just to obtain affection. In Sonnet 43 the character-love relationship is also solid. She thinks love is manipulating her and
