    Does this make sense guys?

    Furthermore, Browning and Duffy both use powerful language to conclude ‘My Last Duchess’ and ‘Medusa,’ magnifying the extreme, lasting impact of jealous love– not only upon the voice, but also their lover.

    What a-levels have you guys chosen ?
    What do you want to become when your older ?
    I've chosen Maths, Further Maths and Physics - very risky choice but I'm really looking forward to it!
    In the end I'm hoping to become a maths teacher, although for some reason I've been leaning a lot towards physics recently so who knows

    I'm doing Biology Chemistry Maths Physics and considering doing further maths on express course so A level maths will be done in the first year. But it may be too much work.

    I'm considering doing medicine but love a physics based career, i.e nuclear physics but I'll make my mind up later and probably do medicine.

    Aw thank you
    Most people would hate it, I feel the same way about medicine! Hahaha yeah it's probably best that you stay away from schools then! I can't deal with little kids so I'd do high school not primary, although they tend to be the more difficult ones

    Moreover, Browning and Duffy both use powerful language to conclude ‘My Last Duchess’ and ‘Medusa,’ magnifying the extreme, lasting impacts and consequences of jealous love – not only upon each voice and their lover, but also the reader. The final outcome of events in ‘My Last Duchess’ serve as being the firmest reminder to the reader of the sheer, everlasting danger of jealous love, through veiled threatening and malevolent suggestions. By the Duke referencing the time in which he ‘gave commands;/Than all smiles stopped together,’ chilling, detached emotions are magnified, with the juxtaposition of the positive image of ‘smiles’ to the connotations of ‘death’ able to reveal his psychotic nature and ruthless manner. This implicit suggested reference to death is ironic, with the Duke seeming to expect the reader to consider his treatment of the Duchess as completely normal, further allowing the Duke to be represented as a monster of jealousy, ego and sadism. In addition, the ‘smiles’ serve as a reference to one of the many things that the Duchess gave others, that provoked the Duke’s treacherous jealousy and paranoia, illustrating his newfound satisfaction at having stopped them; murdering his partner being the only way in which the voice could achieve ultimate control - allowing extreme paranoia and jealousy to subside. Furthermore, this satisfaction is also emphasised through sibilance of ‘smiles stopped,’ creating a complacent and more relaxed tone, but also suggesting pure evil through significance of the snake. Ultimately, the Duchess’s emotional joy in life was unable to merge with the Duke’s twisted character.
