ENG2602/101/0/2021 19 Write an essay of approximately 1 000 words in which you analyse the depiction of the prince’s love for the maiden. You should be mindful of the fact that the love described is for someone who cannot be found, and so loss and yearning are important aspects of his love. How is the prince’s love described and why is it described in this way? What literary devices are used to give meaning to the prince’s love and what are the effects of these devices?
Your essay must discuss in detail the way literary features such as adjectives, imagery, metaphor and hyperbole are used to endow the prince’s love with meaning in the extract and what these meanings are. Please note: •
You must quote from the text to substantiate your argument. Explain how each quotation supports your statements. •
Do not discuss anything in your essay that you cannot relate to the portrayal of the prince’s love. • Restrict your analysis to the excerpt below.
He felt he hadn’t slept because he spent all night wandering through the world looking for a maiden who bore his heart in her womb. His heart grew in her like a child. She was pregnant with his heart for a long time, for a year, for ten years, for a generation, for a hundred and two years. His heart grew bigger and bigger in her, and she grew bigger and bigger to accommodate the growth of his heart in her womb. He never knew when she would give birth to his heart and he lost her the world over and couldn’t find her. His father, the king, told him that the world in which he searched for her was his heart, and that she was the mother of the world, and that his search for her was over when it began but he didn’t know it. He was nonetheless unconsoled and was still searching when he awoke into a sleepless state that left him unrested and bewildered.
