It could be said that the use of conceits and paradoxes is particularly appropriate to religious writings and to love poetry. Write a 4-6 paragraph essay giving general definitions of conceits and paradoxes and explain why you think their use is appropriate to these two forms of writing. Support your idea’s with examples from the words of john donne.
Conceit is extended comparisons that link objects or ideas not commonly associated, often mixing abstract ideas and emotional matters. In one of his poems, for example, Donne compares two lovers to the two legs of a drawing compass.
Meditation 17- god is a publisher..our life is like a book…he is the creator…
An example would be a valediction-forbidding mourning-love is like a compass, still attached in the center when I move the other moves, when I leave they both leave, when other comes back the other greets other beings and ends together..
Paradoxes are images or descriptions that appear self-contradictory but that reveal a deeper truth. Donne use a paradox in holy sonnet 10 when he writes “death, thou shalt die”
A example of a paradox would be in the poem “song” – when thou weep’st, unkindly kind- ..you know that I’m leaving but unkind she is doubting his love…
Another paradox would be in a valediction-forbidding mourning- “ and makes me end where I begun”
An example of a paradox would be from holy sonnet 10-“ death, thou shalt die” death is inevitable, you don’t decide who goes, good or bad death cannot exsist there it no death dean can’t control..

Dispute of cracking an egg shell which led the war between the British and England swift satires the little thing in life we argue about which turns into a unnecessary battle.

What symbols does he use to descrier these oppositions? Include evidence from the poems to support your points.
