Then she continue onto question why is he walking all over her so wickedly when she continues to praise him so highly and remains loving him.

On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, Shakespeare has concluded that her energy was too dark and
In ‘Romeo and Juliet’, Shakespeare shows a variety of forms of love the most prevalent of which is the love between Romeo and Juliet. To only consider romantic love as the only form of love in the play would be reductive. Whilst the love between the “star-cross’d lovers’” could be considered ‘true love’ other forms of love include the forced love felt by Juliet through the threat of marriage, family love and the infatuation that Romeo feels for Rosaline at the beginning of the play. Shakespeare shows the true nature of love, he refrains from showing an idealistic, fairytale version of the emotion. Shakespeare especially shows how love is so intertwined with violence.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “Void in Law” is a very powerful and emotional love sonnet, about a lady who had been deceived by the court and a man who she thought was her husband. Another powerful sonnet, is Robert Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover” which is about a man who kills his lover to keep her from leaving him. This is a chilling and haunting sonnet which leaves the reader with an eerie feeling. These two poem’s have many similarities such as their main theme, and the fact that they are both dramatic monologues. While they share these common factors, they also oppose one another as one is in a male’s perspective and the other is in the perspective of a female, one ends with life while the other ends in death, and one uses dialogue and the other has a sparing amount.
This fantasy demonstrates a rejection of aggression directed toward the object of love, the object of submission. This fantasy transfers to a passive-feminine position, from which the man sacrifices himself, in order to satisfy the object and prevent its loss. Thus the femme fatale in phallocentric discourse functions as the essential element of internal transgression of the established order (Zizek 1999, p. 72), like the male masochistic-paranoiac dream about the sexually voracious lady who incites roughness and violence. The femme fatale is the projection of the inward system of

In the academic literature on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, one of the key questions is Viola’s own understanding of what love means. Much of the romantic intrigues that Viola becomes entangled in is clearly created by the situation in which she finds herself, necessitating that she disguises herself as a male. The play famously tells the tale of Viola, who loves Duke Orsino, who is in love with Countess Olivia, while Olivia falls in love with Viola, thinking she is a man. However, Viola’s understanding of love is perhaps just as complex as this love triangle along with her own position essentially as between genders. In other words, Viola does not exhibit an understanding of love defined by stereotypes of male love or female love, and her male disguise symbolizes this idea.
These presumptions of women had been very much portrayed in short story , The Chaser by John Collier, in which a boy name Alan Austen seeks for a love potion from an old man, for a girl he likes name Diana. The short story really showed the judgement of men’s egotistical minds and also their lust in which clearly stated the true colors of what men really think of women. This establishes the stereotypical image of a woman becoming a man’s puppet, and having no voice in what occurs, but to only be there for an egotistical lust of love in a submissive form to fulfill a man 's desire. When looking into the short story, it is evidently seen that Alan says he loves Diana, but she doesn 't even bother to pay attention to him. So rather than try to capture Diana’s attention he undoubtedly goes into controlling her entire self will for his own selfish reasons.

It’s how Keller, Kate, and Annie are all strict and rigorous towards their beloved, but their true intention infers their in-depth love in hoping good for the beloved. Although love can sometimes be expressed in harsh and severe methods, the author utilizes the relationships among the characters to allude readers the beauty of inner love, and the value of it. Love should have its internal side considered than to be only judged by its visible effects. Therefore, if love is judged by its visible effects, it often looks more like hatred, but when explored deeper, the author hopes readers to realize people’s tendency in expressing their sincere love in whatever
In Shakespeare's time period, gender roles were viewed strongly where men would do almost anything to be “the man” while women usually stayed quiet. His play, Much Ado About Nothing, was a romantic story that contained genuine developing relationships centered on love. The antagonist, Don John, was jealous of the love around him and sparked turmoil that tested the loyalties and bonds of the other characters.
