The repetition of the word ‘lust’, combined with the sexual associations of Desdemona’s bed, reflects and draws attention to Othello’s preoccupation with sensual matters. Othello even refers to his precious wife as ‘whore’ (III.iii.356), a ‘subtle whore’ (III.ii.20) and a ‘cunning whore’ (IV.ii.88), in a way to appreciate him. Shakespeare actually has indirectly revealed Othello’s fear of Desdemona’s sexuality.

Born on the island of Delos to the king of the gods himself and the lovely lady Leto, Apollon, more commonly known as the God Apollo, is easily one of the most salient of the twelve Olympian deities. Patron of the Delphi, along with a myriad else, the oracular Apollo is known far and wide throughout classic art, literature, and even in the modern day astral field of astronomy itself.

Liza, for example, treasures the qualities of romantic love while the Underground Man is incapable of love. The Underground Man’s consistent theme of contradiction is exemplified throughout the story where he experiences a multitude of emotions ranging from narcissistic and egocentric to embarrassment and humiliation. Although the Underground Man envisions himself challenging those who have wronged him, he does not have the “moral courage” to stand up for himself.

Romeo and Juliet of Romeo and Juliet, are both very love-struck and make poor decisions because of it. In A Midsummer's Night Dream, both men and women are equally influenced by the magical flower. Shakespeare not only shows that men and women can behave masculinity, but that they can also be stereotypically
He saw his hand was trembling.” (Hemingway 7). This proves that he is not ready for the responsibilities he put on himself but is too afraid to admit it because he does not want to be deemed a coward.
