In Hold Up, Beyoncé somehow found a way to continue to love her husband, even with all of the grief he has put her through. Amy Winehouse’s, You Know I’m No Good, she clearly states that she is the toxic one in the relationship and that even though she is an adulterer, she still longs for her partner. And lastly, Shakespeare’s sonnet 152, he expresses that he wants to continue an affair with a married woman, because he is egotistical and greedy. Not everyone walking this earth has pure intentions at heart, when it comes to things like love and these songs and sonnets prove that. Love is not always effervescent and alluring, it can be gloomy and full of malicious
To many people this personality would not come off as appealing, but Gatsby had fallen in love with Daisy, her uncaring personality had not bothered him, it was just something she could use to help herself get ahead in life. Like her husband Tom, they both cared about what was best for themselves. And poor Gatsby may have never mattered to Daisy at all. Thought of in harsh ways, “She’s a woman of ‘Vicious emptiness’ of ‘Criminal Amorality,’ a ‘destroyer’ and ‘femme redeemer.’” (The Problem With The
Falling love is one of the easiest things to do. Realistically, being in love is not. It’s easier to be infatuated with the tantalizing facade of a terrible person than acknowledge their faults. In the novel, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, characters face the trials and tribulations of falling in love with ideals rather than reality. The novel is narrated by the cagey and hopeful Nick Carraway as he bares witness to many love triangles and dangerous liaisons.
She refuses to give up Edgar for Heathcliff because he can offer her much than she believes his opponent ever could and she refuses to give up Heathcliff because she still loves him. She is too selfish to choose one man, instead keeping them both to fulfill all of her needs while hurting both of her lovers in the process. Catherine 's capacity to love herself continuously overpowered her ability to truly love those around her. Heathcliff is another extremely selfish character in the novel. His selfishness however, isn 't fueled by self-love but rather his ability to passionately hate those who cross him and his strong desire for revenge.
Perhaps the most discernible demonstration of individualism in the novel is Cathy and Heathcliff’s love; it is ironic to say that love between two people demonstrates individualism since love automatically suggests that one would put another before themselves. The nature of their love is one where Cathy and Heathcliff are one entity; one cannot do without the other. Their love is not based off of the usual sources such as appearance, lust or even fondness; their love is out of a being a shared being as Cathy says "I am Heathcliff––he's always, always in my mind––not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself-–but as my own being” (Bronte 44). Their relationship is out of necessity for each other since they are the same person, it is not the type of love where if one had the choice to leave and do without the other person they would not make that choice. When Cathy dies, an astounding level of individualism is demonstrated by Heathcliff when he cries “May she wake in torment!...
Similarly, lines 3-10 continue on in the same manner with the author proudly admitting that he is aware of his mistress faults, yet he still desires her. Likewise, in the lines 1-2 in the "Beauty in Ugly" the author states "She's so big hearted, But not so remarkable". Therefore, Mraz like Shakespeare is fully aware that their lovers are not considered attractive by society's standards even though they appreciate them. In addition, Mraz states in line 3 "Just an ordinary humble girl". Thereby acknowledging that the girl
Romeo and Juliet only had to glance at each other and it was love at first sight. Although they loved their families and knew what they felt for each other and what they were doing was wrong, they still continued. This is to say that they had an urge, an uncontrollable lust and love for each other that is above anything else. At the end of the story, it is again proven that their love is the most powerful one because they were prepared to die together rather than live
Their distancing during the development of the novel shows that they truly do not love each other for their qualities as people but the quality of their pockets and their name. Same can be said about Gatsby’s obsessive nature and his attraction to Daisy. The lopsided affair shows that Gatsby’s one true connection to Daisy was the ambition for a better wealthier life. As he values Daisy’s wealth and her ambition for a wealthier lifestyle. Gatsby places Daisy on a pedestal and very clearly is chasing a past that has moved on.
He provide his guests all of the luxury services. He eventually made it to the top class but still he haven’t reclaim Daisy Gatsby tries to invite Daisy to his house and to his party his bring up everything he has to Daisy. Until one day he confront to Tom that Daisy didn’t love Tom, told him that Daisy only married him because she waited Gatsby for so long and Gatsby wasn’t rich back then. “She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved any one except me!” Daisy also said: “ I never loved him” which is Tom “ I loved him once--- but I loved you too.” “Daisy is leaving you” said Gatsby “She’s not leaving me” said Tom Eventually Tom said “You two start on home,Daisy,” “In Mr. Gatsby 's Car” As you can see, Tom actually really loved Daisy and so is Gatsby.
She doesn't care about Gil or his feelings and she brushes the conversation off like it is nothing. On the other hand both Tom and Daisy cheat without a care in the world of the repercussions or feelings of others because they have no sympathy for those entangled in their ordeals. Paul is a parallel of tom in a way he believes his way is right and him being rich he also believes that his reputation is high and always on the line so he has to one up everyone to show his dominance. Adriana is in ways a parallel to daisy, adriana like Daisy is pursued by the protagonist as she is gils version of his dream girl. Both gatsby with Daisy and Gil with Adriana are examples of tragic love which were never going to happen.
He demonstrated a love so strong that most would not understand. His love for Lucy was so pure and honourable. Although he loved Lucy more than anything, he did not want to marry her. He said, “In spite of the happiness he would bring you misery, bring you to sorrow and repentance, blight you, disgrace you, pull you down with him.
