The speeches within the Symposium and Phaedrus are aimed towards praising ‘Love’ or ‘Erôs’, this covers sexual attraction and gratification between both men and women and men and teenage boys, but the focus of the speeches here is on the latter, whether the relationship was sexual or not.

Waltman’s main point in his essay is that love is the constant devotion to a person no matter the circumstance. Waltman utilizes rhetorical repetition in his essay on the word love to put a clear emphasis on it.

Comparing the Love Theme in Shakespeare 's" Sonnet 18" and Spenser 's "Sonnet 75" Jacobson This paper is a comparative between Shakespeare 's "Sonnet 18", and Spenser 's "sonnet 75".Both poets wrote a sonnet for a loved one, declaring their love.

In addition, there are many benefits to cross-sex friendship too, and this could outweigh the benefits of same-sex friendship. Early on the benefits of getting an insight of the opposite sex emerges. When children play with the opposite sex, they gain access to learning new styles of play (Helgeson, 2017).

Actually Metaphysical poets wanted to do something unique that’s why they separated themselves from Spenser and Elizabethans poets.
