...Canonization... ’ and ‘The Flea’ is poles apart. Ther Canonization is based on the religion of love. The poem considers the marital relation as saintly and the lover and the beloved are saints. They represent the true love in the world. The poem begins with the unusual colloquial yet stressing addressing “For God’s sake hold your tongue and let me love”. Thus the poet straightly introduces the subject matter ‘love’. The lovers here burn like candles that will burn out of their own. Thus the lovers are beautiful examples of immortalized, canonized love. ‘Love’ is treated as a holy passion. Here the poet extols love-making as a divine act, an act of worship to...

John Donne’s “The Sun Rising” demonstrates the views of the speaker on his love that he thinks is stronger and more beautiful than the sun.

The sun is an enemy to him, although it is also an inspiration for a romantic mood that the speaker feels will forever continue. Donne uses conceit to show his negative attitude toward the sun because he compares the sun to an authority that signals the passing of time... July 19, Love’s...
