“Young men’s love then lies not truly in their hearts,but in their eyes.”(A1, S3, L73) Friar Lawrence lectured Romeo in the world renown play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, written by William Shakespeare . Many people thought Romeo and Juliet were the extreme example of true love, but these teenagers were just infatuated. Infatuation occurs to everyone,but mostly affects adolescents. It causes people to act upon emotions and not think logically. William Shakespeare, believing infatuation was true love , gave many examples of infatuation in the play.
His intention in lampooning was for his audience to enjoy the irony and sarcasm of his work while criticizing the foolish view of the upper class. During the time play’s release, many critics wrote about their opinions of the play. Some critics saw his work as a fantasy, others said it was burlesque, but there were also critics who understood Wilde’s purpose for writing this play (Kohl 272). For instance, Norbert Kohl said, “He is made to laugh at the hollow superficiality hidden behind the mask of earnestness, and to mock the rich facade…” (Kohl 272). Khol clearly understood that Wilde’s purpose of writing The Importance of Being Earnest was to publicly and comically criticize the rich.
Yunior replaces longing with indifference, family with solitude, feelings with masculinity. While he himself does not recognize these exchanges, Yunior alludes to them throughout his story of wooing girls; what he really desires is to not desire. Contentment, his end goal, can only be reached in his mind by proving himself to the world as the man he aspires to be, not the child who did not want to go visit his aunt with his family. In his story, How to date a brown girl (black girl, white girl, or halfie), Junot Diaz, the author, paints the strange world that some male Dominican teens grow up in. His subtle and overt mentions of race, masculinity, and identity constantly tangle themselves throughout the whole piece.
Go, get thee hence, for I will not away. [Exit Friar Laurence] (5.3.155-160) Friar Laurence is the most to blame as he secretly marries the lovers, he hides Romeo, and he provides Juliet with the sleeping potion; moreover, he leaves the emotionally vulnerable Juliet when he could have forced her out of the tomb with him. His failure to speak with the parents and seek to ameliorate their hatred and his other actions go completely against his religious vows as well as being unconscionable. When Juliet 's father insisted that Juliet marry Paris, she could have been honest and told him why she could not marry Paris; instead, she beats around the bush and asks to delay the marriage instead. Romeo, when he saw Juliet in the tomb, did not have to take the potion.
In an all too similar fashion, the Pardoner lives the same scenario which he himself describes in “The Pardoner’s Tale.” As a religious figure, a pardoner is authorized to sell indulgences. Although he does indeed sell the pardons, the Pardoner does so in an evil and deceptive way. Margaret Hallissy confirms that “He deliberately uses his considerable homiletic skills to persuade his audience to demonstrate their ability to overcome cupidity by generously giving their money away—to him" (214). Because homosexuals were treated so poorly in the Middle Ages, the Pardoner has deep, psychological hurt and may have taken some of that pain out on others. Similar to the Old Man, the Pardoner deceives, in this case, pilgrims in a possibly evil
William Goldman has a talent of teaching life lessons through his work. In The Princess Bride, he teaches and shows the unfairness of love and life. His choice of characters and fairy tale help set the story’s tone. The fairy tale is a whirl wind of adventure keeping the story from any boring parts, since it is known as the abridge version. [The Princess Bride by William Goldman portrays the struggles and reality of love and the fact that life is not fair through comedic relief.]
In the article “For Gay Marriage,” author Andrew Sullivan claims that denying the act over the controversial issue of legalizing marriage to homosexuals is the most offensive act pertaining to their communal tolerance. The main plea amplifies that the religious customs, state affairs, and the accustomed marriage is noted as acceptable in today’s society. Sullivan states that he is not getting into what churches do in their open biblical session, but what he believes the state should be more involved and take action to fix the social acceptance among homosexuals. By putting together that homosexuals should have the same basic rights as heterosexuals including marriage sparks the author to suggest that homosexuals are just as financially independent
Hedonism, the seeking of self pleasure, is described by the homosexual innuendos in The Picture of Dorian Gray. The idea of homosexuality was not only unaccepted in London at this time, but also illegal, therefore it is an act of self-service with no care for the laws or others opinions. “Dorian, from the moment I met you, your personality had the most extraordinary influence over me. I was dominated, soul, brain, and power, by you. You became to me the visible incarnation of that unseen ideal whose memory haunts us artists like an exquisite dream.
