I'm trying to write an essay on Sonnet XLIII (How do I love thee?) by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Any info on the themes, formatting, sound, style, context and paraphrasing on this poem for my essay would be soooooo much help!

It is a sonnet, and a straightforward love poem.

If you have more questions after reading a bit, come back here.

well, browning was married to robert browning, who 'rescued' her from her sickly life, she was almost dying...true romantic story of sorts, he whisked her away to a new life. i think the poem takes on a massive double ententdre when you read the poem keeping in mind that she's probably adressing her husband. potent.

I say, start by COUNTING the ways:

1. depth

2. breadth

3. height

etc.

It may seem obvious, but hardly anybody DOES IT!
