The message is made clear with a number of literary devices, the most evident of which is repetition. The lines make use of metaphor comparing death to the darkness of nightfall and life to a bright sunny day.
Already, we can see that these two poems share a similar theme — death. Other similarities, such as types of imagery, tone, mood and relationships will be explained in the next few paragraphs.
However, while they share the same theme, the poems present death in a diametrically opposite way. Rossetti wants her audience to accept the death of a person sub-theme: While Thomas wants his audience to feel the pain of losing someone, therefore wanting dying people to stay alive as long as possible.
The poem thus portrays death as something inevitable which cannot be fought against. The tones of both poems are persuasive, urging the audience into doing something about a looming death. What Thomas is trying to say is that dying people should burn with rage and defiance towards death, persuading his audience to fight death instead of calmly accepting it, unlike what Rossetti has suggested.
Repetition is another technique used by both the poets use to show different perspectives of death.
Repetition is used throughout the two poems, in the form of their titles. The repetition emphasises how important it is to the poet that her lover remembers her after she dies, but at the same time, lets her die peacefully.
The repetition is a constant reminder of the sub-theme, about how imperative it is to fight death. A key similarity is the imagery used in both poems, primarily through euphemism and personified metaphors.
Both the narrators really care about the person they are speaking to and talk gently to them, reflecting their loving relationship which is a similarity between the poems.
This phrase has a personal pronoun, showing us the narrator knows the person he is talking to, the next two words proving this.
Both again show affection and care for the other character and want what they think is best for them. They both use similar techniques such as euphemism, personification and personified metaphors for imagery and repetition for emphasis. Rossetti believes it is better to move on with life after someone is gone, while Thomas believes to fight for survival.
