In the first stanza, Keats expresses his romantic sympathy by describing Isabella and her lover as a tortured pair who “could not in the self-same mansion dwell / Without some stir of heart, some malady” (3–4).They don’t share their feelings to each other but they have their eyes to express of their presence and spend the happy moment, which this poem briefly calls "love" (Heinzelman, 1988, p. 177). He is like a palmer but psychologically never stronger than a child. He has the lacks the power to speak, to declare himself and also of his love. Each lover eventually submits to the paradox of seeing self-interest and personal well-being as the presence of the other: They could not sit at meals but feel how well It soothed each to be the other by; They could not, sure, beneath the same roof sleep (5-7) At last, Isabella takes the step to convey her feeling to Lorenzo but without hurting him.

Gatsby wants Daisy 's whole love, her unadulterated and exclusive love, but is jarred by the startling reality that due to the passage of time, and the cruelty of fate, Daisy loved Tom when she could not love Gatsby.
