Havisham is a dramatic poem. Expressing Havisham's love and hatred she has towards her '*******' finance that left her and what he has caused her to become. Havisham has not only wished but prayed which shows a religious imagery and a verb, showing her anger of wanting him 'dead' that her eyes have turned to '' dark green pebbles'' metaphorical describing her jealousy that hardens
Havisham shows her violence of what her finance turned her into, she expresses how she rots and stinks as she has remained the same since her wedding day and is '' trembling'' to look herself in the mirror. Showing she no longer recognises herself, it is shown in the rhetorical question'' who did this to me?'' this expresses her anger and pressure.
Havisham uses an oxymoron '' love's hate'' it shows the innocence of her and the destruction he has caused to her life making her angry, the alliteration of the ''balloon bursting'' not only shows her anger but violence. Her violence is shown as she '' stabbed at a wedding cake, ''it shows the contrast as a wedding cake represents happiness and your love bond but as Havisham stabs it it shows her anger and her love that's hated.
Havisham shows how she is losing control by the pauses and repetition she uses and wants to '' strangle'' '' bite'' her finance showing she wants to cause him pain and suffering just like he caused to her. and shows her violence because of the isolation he's making her feel without his 'lost body' and would prefer a '' male corpse '' This implies death.
Havisham defines the pain her finance brought upon her because he left her. She shows the audience her violence and anger and evoking sympathy for the reader as the feel her pain for her loss.
