The intent of this essay is to analyze how techniques used in Leaving Prince Charming Behind andThis is Love alteration my sentiment of love. The two verse forms by Karlo Mila. Leaving Prince Charming Behind and This Is Love expression at love at two different points of views- fairy tale and horticulture. severally. Although both verse forms talk about love. the verse form Leaving Prince Charming behind comparisons love to a fairytale whilst the verse form This is Love relates love to horticulture. depicting love to be more realistic and practical.
In the verse form Leaving Prince Charming Behind. the usage of drawn-out metaphors changed my sentiment about love. By invariably mentioning to well-known fairytale princesses ( Snow White. Rapunzel. St George and the Dragon. Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella ) throughout the verse form. Karlo Mila introduce us to the common misconception- Love is like a fairy tale. Sadly. Love is non like a fairy tale. unlike fairy tales. love does non ever stop with a happy stoping. Unlike fairy tales. love is non ever sweet and wonderful. Unlike fairy tales. there isnt ever a Prince Charming.
Karlo Mila wants to stress these thoughts by demoing us the self-contradictory side of each fairytale event. For illustration. most people believe that Rapunzel ( after being rescued by Prince Charming ) lived merrily of all time after. However. this was non the instance. Rapunzel did non happen love to be sweet or fantastic. nor did she happen contentment in the relationship. alternatively she feels that love is really the Architect of my isolation. The usage of drawn-out metaphors helped me understand that love is non like a fairytale- in some instances. it may even be the complete antonym.
Another technique used in Leaving Prince Charming Behind was the unusual combination of different font types. For illustration. the bolded phrases. I believed you and I dont believe you reflects on her ideas and feelings. The underlined phrases. the toxicant apple and non believing in glass slipper salvation were illustrations of allusions to other texts. The usage of italics. were so busy believing and on your gallant white Equus caballus shows the writers sarcasm or jeer. I believe that the unusual combinations of font types reflects on her baffled province of head as she is make up one’s minding on whether to go on or go forth the relationship. The unusual combination of different font types can besides be seen as hiccoughs or obstructions. forestalling the verse form from fluxing swimmingly. In the same manner. Karlo Mila wants us to cognize that love is non ever smooth ; alternatively. many obstructions and adversities must be endured in order for love to last.

However. by sniping or irrigating. it shows that the individual values this relationship ; hence. he will go on to lend in order to continue this relationship. The usage of imagination helped me understand that love is non a clump of ruddy roses- love is really the infinite part from both parties in order to keep 1s relationship.
In the verse form This is Love. the usage of drawn-out metaphors besides changed my sentiment about love. By comparing love to horticulture. Karlo Mila introduces the thought that Love is non fun and games. For illustration. presents. many adolescents believe that it is cool to acquire into a relationship. without really cognizing the forfeits that have to be made in order for the relationship to be conserved. The words Pruning and Tending symbolises the clip and attempt both parties need to lend in order for a relationship to last. The phrase Cutting fingertips quietly symbolises the infinite statements and battles that both parties will see during their relationship. doing hurting and sorrow. The word Winter symbolises the adversities and the troubles that will prove their love. By the usage of drawn-out metaphors. Karlo Mila wants to state us that in a relationship. it is non fun and games alternatively. infinite forfeits. hurting and sorrow have to be endured for a relationship to last.
