what are aspects of elizabethan poetry

Jan 12th, 2015

The general characteristics of the Elizabethan poetry, given this genre typically focuses on creativity, is the use of metaphors, repetition, puns, and paradoxes.  The metaphor is typically used to compare women to objects of rare and exotic beauty.  The repetition exists so as to develop and deepen the theme of the poetry. The use of puns existed so as to develop a play on words given many words, in the English language, typically have multiple meanings. Lastly, the use of paradoxes instills the importance of opposites.

Thematically, Elizabethan poetry focused upon romance and courtly love.
