Comparision of 'Remeberance' and 'Upon My Son Samuel His Going for England.'

A Comparison of   ‘Remembrance’ by Emily Bronte and ‘Upon My Son Samuel His Going For England’ by Anne Bradstreet

  Anne Bradstreet and Emily Bronte are two female poets who have written about separation in different ways. Anne Bradstreet was a metaphysical poet, as her poetry focused greatly on religion, whilst Bronte’s poems were written in the romantic era.   Despite the fact that both poets had much disapproval about their writing from males who found it ‘beyond the custom of their sex’, they still managed to get their work published and have since become very well known in the literacy world.

A possible reason that both poets chose to write lyrical poems could be by means of expressing themselves.
  The poems themselves are both very similar in that they both express the emoticons and thoughts that you go through with separation and love, although there are more differences. Firstly, Bradstreet is merely writing about her son going away to England, but Bronte is describing the death...
