Conversely, through his ability to listen and express emotions, Robert forms a deeper connection – one nonexistent in the narrator’s marriage – with both his and the narrator’s wife. Robert and Beulah have a relationship that the narrator cannot at all understand. In fact, the narrator pities both of them, feeling “sorry for the blind man” for not knowing how Beulah looks and “thinking what a pitiful life [Beulah] must have led” (Carver 213). The narrator perceives love as literal, fed by physical beauty and not emotion, whereas Robert and Beulah prove the opposite, that love is fed by something deeper. The narrator’s primary thought involves whether Beulah could “wear makeup or not,” highlighting his materialistic concept of love (Carver 213).
Jay 's Obsession in The Great Gatsby There is a fine line between love and lust. If love is only a will to possess, it is not love. To love someone is to hold them dear to one 's heart. In The Great Gatsby, the characters, Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan are said to be in love, but in reality, this seems to be a misconception. In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald portrays the themes of love, lust and obsession, through the character of Jay Gatsby, who confuses lust and obsession with love.
She is a woman who feels complete around a man. Based on Knox insight, Medea, regardless of her power, her destiny is to marry, bear and raised children, and go where her husband goes, subordinate her life to his, because all she has is her children and husband, but when Jason betrays her, she dedicates her force of that intellect and energy turning it all against him (Knox 292). We should be against her ideals, but the fact is that she devoted her life for Jason, often making difficult decisions and denying opportunities she had just to have her time and energy be wasted on Jason. It the sole reason why she turns against him. In my few, the tragedy is not her, it’s him, because he loses a big portion of his life.

Romeo and Juliet is a classic romance story by William Shakespeare about two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, falling in love. Nevertheless, their two families have a vendetta against each other, making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to ever truly be together. This romantic set-up has been used multiple times after Shakespeare, such as West Side Story. The story itself has very romantic and light-hearted moments, but a lot of issues that aren’t paid as much attention to can be calamitous. Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters.

Through the portrayal of the second generation pair, Kalyani and Shripati, Deshpande depicts the predicament of women who are confined in the framework of traditional marriage and lead a life of self-denial and suffering. Kalyani’s life is an example of forced incompatible arranged marriage in which a woman has to suffer endlessly. Even if marriage fails in giving happiness of any kind to woman, it is preferred because it gives a security and a sense of dignity to woman in society.
