Can you connect the poem, "True Love", by R.P.W. to a piece of literature?
A book, poem, story, something?

First of all, I believe that the poem you're talking about is at:
If so, interesting comparisons could be made to other poems such as Browning's "My Last Duchess."
Or check out parallels with the novel _Bastard out of Carolina_ by Dorothy Allison.
You might think about using Larry McMurtry's _The Last Picture Show_. Rent the movie and see if it would work.
RPW was also a member of a southern group of writers and poets called The Southern Agrarians. Try finding a work by one of them to use for your comparison.
The Southern Agrarians were:
* John Crowe Ransom
* Donald Davidson
* Frank Lawrence Owsley
* John Gould Fletcher
* Lyle H. Lanier
* Allen Tate
* Herman Clarence Nixon
* Andrew Nelson Lytle
* Robert Penn Warren
* John Donald Wade
* Henry Blue Kline
* Stark Young
