Romero is a lovestruck man forever trying to find his love and Mercutio resents love and fills his needs and desires with a good party and jokes. Romeo's a tragedy in the play and Mercutio is a comic relief. In conclusion that I believe that the foils that can be detected in the story are Romeo and Mercutio and also Tybalt and Benvolio. Romeo's a lovesick Mopper who cherishes love and is always searching for his one true love. Mercutio on the other hand is a witty jokester and is not interested of finding love.
This comes to show that manipulation can reveal the true feelings and thoughts about one another. In the beginning of Much Ado About Nothing Benedick and Beatrice are strong-willed people who fear falling in love will lead to heartbreak. This cause them to deny their affections towards each other. This then causes the other characters to interfere in their love life. Another, example of manipulation is when Hero and Claudio's love for each other is torn apart by the deviousness of Don John's actions For Instance, Claudio, Don Pedro, and Leonato plan to trick
Meanwhile, Nicholas begs her for sex by yelling “sweetheart, love me right away or I’ll die, so help me God!” (Chaucer, “The Miller’s Tale” 94-95). This remark displays that he has shallow reasons in mind for going after Alisoun. Fortunately for him, intense physical attraction is less meaningful and therefore less detrimental than
Romeo 's nonexistent communication with Rosalind is a sign he is merely infatuated with her external appearance, “Oh, she is rich in beauty, only poor That when she dies, with beauty dies her store” (1.1.215-16). One of the attributes of narcissism is the “love of or sexual desire for one 's own body” (Merriam-Webster 824). His obsessive compulsion with beauty leads him into despair because he is unable to attain the beautiful object he desires. In Slavoj Zizek 's Courtly Love, or Woman as Things, “the Lady is thus perceived as a kind of spiritual guide into the higher sphere of religious ecstasy” (Zizek 1181). Rosalind is Romeo 's “Lady” and spiritual guide to his “religious ecstasy.” In a sense, his “love” for Rosalind 's beauty is a representation of his addiction for beautiful objects.
Cyrano’s and Christian’s Silly Plan In Cyrano de Bergerac written by Edmond Rostand two men are in love with the beautiful precieuse, Roxane. One of the men, Cyrano, finds himself unattractive but what he lacks in looks, he makes up for in his astounding poetry and intellect.

Cyrano and Christian are contrasting characters, but their traits together make the perfect man.
As American business man, Richard M. Devos, once said, “Money cannot buy peace of mind. It cannot heal ruptured relationships, or build meaning into a life that has none.” In the novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott, Fitzgerald, Daisy, an elite socialite, is blinded by dollar signs and makes multiple decisions based on class, ultimately leading to the destruction of those who she claims to love, and without a doubt love and idolize her. Jay Gatsby has been in love with Daisy for five years, and supposedly she is with him, but she’s too impatient to wait for Gatsby while he is at war and decides to marry an arrogant, racist, and rude former college football star, Tom Buchanan, for money. Daisy is a self-absorbed, vacuous socialite whose decisions lead to the destruction of Gatsby. Daisy proves to be easily swayed and shallow from the start, if only Gatsby could have foresaw it before it affected when he returned from war expecting to have Daisy.
The power of love is greater than the love of power. Iphonious, Telemachus’s beloved son has fallen head over heels in love with the charming nymph, Ceria. However, if Iphonious chooses to please his heart and love Ceria, he will unwillingly relinquish his throne. Iphonious and Ceria knew they were meant for each other the moment they locked eyes. It does not do any soul good to govern love at first sight.
By what means can a character that is absent in the greater part of the play be viewed as the primary one? The appropriate response is truly simple and straightforward: in light of the fact that without his mistakes, the plot is lost and silly. Since without his naughtiness, the play would not be a drama. Puck is the person who ties and unfastens, distorts and makes as he pleases. What's more, in spite of the fact that he has made all that bedlam, toward the end he settle his mistakes by reestablishing the love adjust in the two couples of lovers, unthinkable without his intervention.
entirely for pleasure now.”Once again, marriage is exposed as something you wouldn’t want or ask for under any circumstances. Wilde makes fun at it and once remarks how living without a spouse or company makes you live in a better way and more happily, although, for most people real life the death of their spouses is one of the worst things that could occur to them. This comparison allows the reader to evaluate the farce in The Importance of Being Earnest, and how Wilde portrays wholly improbable real life situations as completely possible in his novel, depicting his characters as totally crude. Going more in depth with her frivolousness (mentioned before) we point out the quote, “I hope not Algernon… fortunately he is accustomed to that.” Once again, the use of satire, Lady Bracknell is anything but earnest. She cares so much about appearances, and as mentioned before, takes marriage as something unimportant, she sends her husband to dine away from the family, so the dining table looks pretty and put together.
Christians look down upon him because he lends money with interest, which the Christian faith deems unmoral. The nature of this love is negative because his love of his materialistic attitude which will only hurt himself. If one has lost friends and family, then material goods will soon mean little to nothing. In terms of romantic love, shakespeare displays Bassanio and Portia’s love as true love, Jessica and Lorenzo’s Love as young love, and Gratiano and Nerissa’s love as lustful. Finally, Antonio and Bassanio’s friendship is the strongest type of love in The Merchant of Venice.
Julia and Winston are similar in many aspects but also very different in others. Their main similarities that are propionate to me is they are both rebellions fatalism, in love affair with one another, and they both Hates the party. On the country Julia is 26 when Winston is 39. Not only is there an age difference difference but also their level of happiness.

With this in mind, Cathy lives a comfortable life, manipulating Mr. Edwards’ self-torturing love to pamper her and cater to her desires.

Soon after her traumatic experience with Mr. Edwards, the Trask brothers take her in. Her beauty and frailness attracts Adam’s attention and sympathy, to which the narrator adds, “She needed protection and money. Adam could give her both.
While the movie shows them dating. The problem with showing the viewer that Chris is this wonderful person all the time is that it’s fake. Showing the character’s his faults makes him more relatable. On top of that Chris is very intriguing on his outlooks of the life he lives adding a sort of mysterious enigma to his character. “Some readers admired the boy immensely for his courage and noble ideals; other fulminated that he was a reckless idiot, a wacko, a narcissist who perished out of arrogance and stupidity—and was undeserving of the considerable media attention he received” (Krakauer – Author’s Note).
After spending years married to Tom, she has become used to looking into the material items. When reunited with Gatsby she only points her attention on what he has materialistically: “They’re such beautiful shirts … it makes me sad because I’ve never seen such-such beautiful shirts before” (pg 92). The reason Daisy is so upset is because she acknowledges that she could have had multiple materialistic gains whist being married to Gatsby in a love-filled relationship. When she sees what she could have had her mirage of a perfect life begins to crumble. But this leads to her in the end resorting to her false outward appearance since it is easier for her to fall back into her lie that confront her own truth, that she is unhappy presently.
From Daisy 's point of view, reuniting with Gatsby is miserable not only because of the inextinguished flame between the two past lovers, but also because Gatsby now has in his grasp, the upper-class lifestyle she so needs, yet she is not with him. This is the mindset that prevails when Gatsby first appears in the story. Now that he is rich, he deserves Daisy, the woman he has never stopped pursuing. His love for Daisy runs deeply and unfalteringly, and when he sees her again for the first time in five years, is even rekindled. The notion that after all the time and trouble, he finally gets the girl is stunning to readers because such a long, grueling pursuit being fulfilled is an amazing feat; Gatsby is extraordinary for having defeated insurmountable odds fro the woman he loves.
