Infatuation is seen between Bingley and Jane. Bingley brings up her beauty many times but does not know much about her. These intense feelings for her beauty are the only feelings he shows in the novel. In addition, Jane is overwhelmed with his good looks and wealth. Love at first sight does not mean happiness or trust and may lead to a hole in many of the important parts of a relationship, for example confidence.
Sonnet 130 is written to express how different the Dark lady's attributes is from the era's ideal standard. Yet, the author finds her a rarity among the other idealized women. On the other hand, "Beauty in Ugly" by Jason Mraz, invokes the listener to understand that his intended recipient is ordinary and unremarkable. Yet, thee is beauty in ugly and she has other things to offer. Both works share a similarity in how they make an unremarked woman their focus, while at same time professing admiration for her.
In the beginning of John Steinbeck’s novel, “The Pearl”, the two main characters, Kino and Juana, who are also married, shared a very close relationship, in which both have respect for the other and adore one another wholeheartedly. The question is, whether their relationship will change throughout the course of the novel during their adventurous experiences that will occur, and if so, will it be for better or for worse. In the first chapter of “The Pearl”, Kino and Juana shared a stable and loving relationship, their son, Coyotito, was happy and healthy, and even though they owned close to almost nothing, they were still satisfied and grateful with what they had. Steinbeck describes their morning ritual saying, “When Kino had finished, Juana came back to the fire and ate her breakfast. They had spoken once, but there is no need for speech if it is a habit, anyway.” (Ch.1, p.4) This is an example of not just how much respect Juana had for her husband, but also how comfortable they were around each other; she knew exactly what he needed and wanted without him uttering a word to her.
“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.” William James explains that positive attitude can help in many situations. In “The diary of Anne Frank” by Anne Frank, she keeps her head held high in the Annex and has a positive attitude. A letter from “Dear Ms. Breed” by Louise Ogawa, has a similar response. She stays focused on her work, all while being grateful for what she had.
The concept of a Petrarchan Lover comes from Petrarch’s sonnets where he idealises a woman called Laura. Petrarch idealises Laura and has set ideas of what love is which he applies to her. Romeo becomes a Petrarchan lover at the beginning of the play with Rosaline. We can tell this because his love towards Rosaline is unrequited and ‘childish’ also, like with Laura, we never meet Rosaline. Romeo is infatuated by Rosaline and he describes her using similar language and themes to Petrarch which he has clearly learned from a poem.
I believe that Eva is a big reason that Morrie is as loving and caring as he is. She helps to fill the loss of his mother. Because she is not stingy with her love, Morrie begins to see how important love truly is. She shows him that the world needs love to be a happy place and encourages him to be the person that shows love to
Additionally, he focuses on the inferiority of women, who cannot openly exert their power. Most damningly, Steinbeck frequently considers that women are more easily susceptible to temptation, and cannot restrain themselves once tempted. These intentions of limiting women are subtle in his writing and project Steinbeck’s own bias against
To conclude, both of the poems make their point, love cannot be defeated by distance. Moreover, John Donne and Anne Bradstreet prove with examples that love is so powerful, and by making that point, both of them are showing that their characters are going to be together no matter what. Probably they might find obstacles in their way; the physical presence does not matter and distance cannot separate what they feel for each other because their souls are going to be still connected just like one entity.
