Whether it is unrequited love, love that is lost, or love that could have possibly never been there in the first place. When comparing and contrasting these sonnets and contemporary songs, the reader will get to see love that is hardened by the hardships of infidelities and lies. In these songs and poems, love is a catastrophe that is facing much adversity. In sonnet 147, Shakespeare ended up being so appalled by his love life, that he said her soul was clouded by darkness. In Hold Up, Beyoncé somehow found a way to continue to love her husband, even with all of the grief he has put her through.
Their affections for one another are fickle and constantly changing. They have a mercurial kind of love. Catullus obviously loved Lesbia deeply, but he also feels intense dislike, disappointment and contempt towards her. Through it all, it seems as though Catullus longs for Lesbia, but Lesbia does not return the same amount of affection. Catullus often manipulates the audience’s emotions through his poetry and directs attention towards himself in order for the audience to feel sympathy for him and often contempt for Lesbia.
The definition is concise, but probably not very clear. It’s not easy to define what “absolute perfection” is, especially because of the free will. The passion between Romeo and Juliet is misinterpreted by the two young lovers as love. And all the readers in all these centuries have been interpreting a dramatic idea of love not based on reality but on impulsive feelings as “The ideal Love” . Romeo’s longing for ideal love is the primary driving force behind most of his actions, that reveal themselves as impulsive and stupid.
This love feel I, that feel no love in this.” (1.1.174-176). The oxymoronic enumeration of Romeo’s citing is utilised to express and exaggerate his contradictory perspective of love, which further suggest to readers about Romeo’s love-sickness. As the sympathetic person Benvolio is, he advises Romeo to notice other girls, contrary of what Romeo expected. In this way, Benvolio shows
Throughout the beginning of “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare, there was more than enough sorrow from Romeo’s feelings for Rosaline that he could not bear. It was his love for her that put depression upon his shoulders, for he was the one who fell in love with her before she rejected him. This substantiates that love isn’t perfect for every situation, and it doesn 't solve everything, but when used at the right moment, could change and hearten somebody’s life. After a few days, Romeo’s love for Rosaline was almost nothing compared to his love for Juliet. Act II, Scene 6, “But my true love is grown to such excess I cannot sum up sum of half my wealth.” With Juliet’s love so strong and unimaginably great, she could not begin to calculate the amount of love she feels toward Romeo.
The poem “My Love for You is so Embarrassingly” by Todd Boss is a poem about love and the whirlwind of feelings you get when experiencing it. In this poem, Boss uses many figures of speech in order to put ourselves in his shoes and help us better understand what love is to him. The title may cause confusion; why would love be so embarrassing? Throughout the poem he uses several metaphors ultimately explaining it. Boss’s love is so grand; he is so infatuated that it is embarrassing.
The Narrator thought, “Her officer—why should he have a name?” (Carver, 2) Evidently, the imbecilic Narrator was feeling jealous through his thoughts and actions. The Narrator is also jealous of Richard. Later on, before Richard came over, the Narrator says, “Maybe I could take him bowling” (Carver, 3). Even though the Narrator thought that he was amusing, his wife rejected the joke. After hearing this, she said, “If you love me..you can do this for me.
Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865). Here Romeo tells Tybalt, that he loves him. Romeo does this with no thought about their last names, he is so in love with Tybalt’s cousin that all of a sudden he forgets about the two family’s bad blood. Friar warns Romeos about rushing into a relationship “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (Shakespeare 847).
Even though Desdemona is completely innocent of infidelity, Iago keeps planting evidence to create doubt in Othello’s mind. Since Othello believes that all men are as noble and honest as him, he believes everything Iago is telling him. Although Othello still loves Desdemona, he warns that when his love runs out, all hell will break loose. Several lines later, Othello comes to the conclusion stating, “I am abused, and my relief/ Must be to loath her.” (3.3.267-268) This scene is explaining that he has made his decision, and his love for Desdemona has run out. Othello is so hurt and in a fit of rage, and passion he’s not thinking clearly or logically.

The women in his life influence him into a state of misogyny. He did not innately hate all women, but slowly as he reserved rejection after rejection he snapped. Hamlet’s relationships differed between Gertrude and Ophelia, but both had the same goal of Hamlet having someone to love and care about him. With the goal of compassion being accomplished, he spiralled in a growing hatred of the female population. Hamlet’s misogyny is not the result sexual repression , but rather his environment and the interactions with women.
