The Knight and Miller tale have similar characters which play very similar roles but with totally different personalities. The Knight's Tale is told by a famous person, and it is an historical romance which barely escapes a extremely sad ending (involves death or suffering). The Miller's Tale has a plot, but not themes. The Miller’s Tale is seen as a lower class point of view and it turns the knight’s idea of courtly love into a shorter, disgusting farce.
She runs away with her lover, planning to be married to him outside of her father’s control, and the two end up running into many different problems and circumstances involving the fairy King, Oberon, and his wife, Titania. In the end, Hermia as she is able to marry the man that she chooses, even though it angers her father. Moreover, Shakespeare poses many differences between the roles of men and women. The differences are displayed by the relationship between father and daughter, the dominance of men over women, and the expectations of women. The relationship between Egeus and Hermia is very distinct.
Having a person you can always trust and be yourself with is usually the main incentive. A frequently asked question is, why do people actually fall in love? Falling in love is a different experience for everyone; people may fall in love with someone’s appearance, wealth, actions, speech, personality, and the list goes on. Although Shakespeare never directly tells readers why Orsino falls for Olivia, it is assumed it is for her fortune because the two characters never actually meet face-to-face until Act V. Olivia, on the other hand, falls in love with Cesario’s youth and elegant diction. Both Olivia and Orsino seem to be so in love, that it seems obsessive.
Romeo was deeply in love with Rosaline and wanted to be with her and get married. “For beauty starved with her severity…She is too fair, too wise, wisely too fair, to merit bliss by making me despair: She hath forsworn to love, and in that vow…” (Romeo and Juliet 1.1.210-214) Romeo thought that Rosaline was everything he was looking for. Rosaline on the other hand did not care for Romeo, or from what the play tells us. Romeo moved on past Rosaline at a party the Capulets were throwing. If Romeo had not moved onto Juliet many, if not all, characters would have still been alive.
He is attracted to Calixta, but does not love her, he only lusts for her. He does however love his mother’s goddaughter Clarisse. Clarisse is the opposite of Calixta; she is well rounded, wealthy and rather respectable. During the ball scene in “At the ‘Cadian
Tristan and Iseult are similar to Romeo and Juliet, they are madly in love but it is frowned upon. Tristan is a Cornish Knight of Round Table, he is also the son of Blancheflor and Rivalen. Tristan’s uncle is King Mark of Cornwall and the reason Tristan and Iseult fell in love was evidently King Mark’s fault. Iseult was the princess of Ireland. She wasn’t really relevant until her love story with Tristan came along.
The power of love is greater than the love of power. Iphonious, Telemachus’s beloved son has fallen head over heels in love with the charming nymph, Ceria. However, if Iphonious chooses to please his heart and love Ceria, he will unwillingly relinquish his throne. Iphonious and Ceria knew they were meant for each other the moment they locked eyes. It does not do any soul good to govern love at first sight.
It is for those who need to be with someone for their own good. For example, a rich women would need to marry a rich man even if she is in love with someone else. To relate this to the middle ages, a “knight practically worships her. In fact, his love for her makes the knight stronger and more honorable” (Shmoop). Saying this, the women in the relationship is not truly in love with the knight.
After some light conversations, Rochester has found himself in love with Jane because of her mind. He ignores her “plainness” and finds her true beauty to be her personality (Bronte 177). Jane is just an orphan and Rochester is a wealthy, well respected man. In the Victorian era, their significant social class difference posed a challenge for their relationship. Rochester fights the social norms and tries to marry Jane no matter what.
Even though Charlotte was not the most beautiful woman, she found abundant success in her talents. The Victorian era placed a woman’s value in how much money and beauty she possessed. In Charlotte Bronte’s coming of age novel, Jane Eyre, outward beauty deceives as it ironically represents a true evil in oneself. The beautiful Reed family, who resides at Gateshead, has cruel hearts as they boast about their luxuries as they deny them to their “outsider” blood. Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a
Myrtle ended up cheating on Wilson because Tom had the money that Wilson lacked, she felt like she deserved more than she was getting.

In July of 1565, she wed a cousin named Henry Stewart, Lord Darnley, a weak, vain, and unstable young man; like Mary, he was also a grandchild of Henry VIII’s sister Margaret. Why Mary wed Darnley remains a mystery. He was superficially charming and, unlike most men, taller than the queen. He was also fond of courtly amusements and thus a nice change from the dour Scottish lords who surrounded her. But he never seemed to care for Mary and sought far more power than she was willing to give him.
Death, with a night of bliss, or a miserable but powerful and wealthy life? The answer depends on a person’s perspective. Someone as grounded as Lady Capulet would choose duty, power, and money over love, while someone as hopelessly romantic as Romeo would willingly die for their supposed love. However, Romeo and Juliet did not know each other. Pyramus and Thisbe exemplify love and sacrifice far better.
Eventhough Gatsby has a lot of money so if she ever committed adultery then he would leave her because a rich young Handsome guy , can replace a women with interest.
