In the 1977 novel, Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. Morrison highlights the running theme of love. The theme of love is present in every relationship in the novel and is defined different from character to character. The women display love as a way of obsession whether it is over their spouses or over materialistic possessions. The men, however; define it differently, many are distant and secluded when it comes to expressing affection and love.
The enjambment used throughout the poem also emphasises the idea of love withstanding the obstacle that is time and time passing by. This line endorses the idea that love will triumph any challenge even time. However, love here can also present love as an illusion. The effigies are there to give the people a nice final memory of them and the ‘love’ is not eternal. The line “what will survive of us is love” is an example of where Larkin’s use of a trochaic tetrameter accentuates the love and emotions the couple had while they were
I think that he describes love as something sweet and nice, but it’s still hard and sometimes even painful. “Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs; Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers ' eyes” “Love goes toward love, as schoolboys from their books, But love from love, toward school with heavy looks.” 2.

When a love story is told in a first-person perspective, it makes sense for the readers to expect an overly dramatic and emotional narrative. James Joyce’s “Araby” and T. S. Eliot’s “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” are both love experiences written in first-person perspectives. However, in “Araby”, the boy occasionally assumes a somewhat detached attitude in his narration and in “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”, Prufrock sings his love song in a dry, passive manner. When the boy in “Araby” explains about the name of the girl he fell in love with, he says “her name was like a summons to all my foolish blood” (2169). Although this statement might sound passionate, identifying his love-evoked reaction as foolishness and not providing the readers with the girl’s name expresses the boy’s current state of
Also in the story the part where the knight commits the crime that propels the rest of the story, “He saw a maiden walking all forlorn ahead of him, alone as she was born. And of that spite maiden, spite of all she said. By force he took her maidenhead” (61- 64). In the first quote the knight learns a valuable lesson that when finding a woman to wife and love, you must evaluate her on how she will treat you and love you.

The poems “A Love Song” by William Williams and “Love’s Philosophy” by Percy Shelley both discuss love. “A Love Song” is full of negative imagery, and suggests that love changes how one sees the world for the worse.

Both authors convey these themes using the literary devices of diction, imagery, and tone.
The Hardships of love Everyone goes through struggles and difficulties in their relationships, achieving goals and overall everyday life. The theme “The hardships of love”, showcases how maintaining love is difficult, why not to expect love to be easy, the challenge of putting yourself second and knowing why hardships in love exist. Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare, Trials by Frank Mandarano, I will always love you by Whitney Houston and Valentine by Caroline Duffy, all exhibit these challenges. Sonnet 116, by William Shakespeare is an Elizabethan sonnet which portrays an utopian view of love. However, the poem also discloses the hardships and challenges people trying to maintain love can face such as death, opposing third parties, tempests and time.
In addition, the dramaturgic suggests that once Demetrius and Helena were lovers, they could be together again. All of the four lovers are deeply preoccupied with their own feelings, chasing love and the true nature of contentment. To further emphasize on the main motif in the play-the complicated matter of love, we consider Lysander’s words that: “The course of true love never did run smooth,” (I.i.134) Yes, Indeed, love needs sacrifice, however the delicate tone of the play never left the reader with the impression there will be a melancholic
He conveys the idea with The Flea as how the girl does not want to have sex with the boy as he believes it will create a stronger bond. Also in The Good-Morrow, the couple has a powerful emotional connection which has matured in the growth of their relationship creating true love.
