More specifically, Hero’s affection towards her family, Grotesque and his appearance and the jealous sisters and their envious ways are all prime examples. By evaluation those archetypes, we are able to see the author's various perspective of love. The courageous
Love is unconditionally caring about someone else that you care more about yourself. Love may give us joy, and happiness, but it also brings the worse out in us. In Celeste Rita Baker’s short story Jumbie from Bordeaux, the author presents love and the price paid for love through the indirect characterization of Jumbie, his aunt, and parents. In the story the author uses courage to show the love that Jumbie had for his parents. For example, when Jumbie witnesses the harsh beating of his parents, he immediately jumps in to interfere, by attacking the master.
Love: an intense feeling of deep affection towards someone or something. It affects people in different ways, whether is is emotionally, physically, or mentally. It may sometimes lead people to go far beyond what is necessary to keep it alive. In the novel, The Awakening, Robert Lebrun, held a position in a mercantile house where he met a married woman named Edna Pontellier. Infatuated by her, he tried to win her affections, while in the film The Great Gatsby, we see the obstacles millionaire Jay Gatsby had to go through to rekindle the old love he and, now married, Daisy Buchanan had five years before.
Love is a complicated concept in this world that people frequently experience in their lifetime. In her essay, “Love’s Vocabulary,” Diane Ackerman explores the beautiful idea of love and describes love in many creative ways with insightful words. Out of all the things she compares love to, her most excellent comparison is with an “intoxicant,” a substance that has the power to cause people to lose control of their behavior. This comparison expresses many truths about love because, like an intoxicant, love is an influential force that is comprised of numerous elements and comes in many different types. Ackerman’s choice of comparing love to a word with such negative connotation is wise, for it implies that love can be so strong to the extent
A balance of both types of love is needed to be healthy. Admittedly I liked his metaphor of the seasons, saying that common Eros is when the seasons are predominantly calm as in spring and summer. When vulgar Eros takes over, this is when plagues, hail, and rain start. This could be a metaphor for what someone’s emotions could be if they have an imbalance of common and vulgar love. If a person has enough common Eros, then that person is with prosperity.
The language in Plato’s symposium and the expression of Sappho’s poetry are similar in that they both deal with homoerotic love. Sappho, the only ancient Greek female author whose work survived, talks from the female point of observation, where as Plato’s work concentrates on the idea of love among males. In spite of the fact that both of their points of view are comparative in courses, for example, their thoughts of physical fascination and want, Plato’s work creates a better understanding of the nature of love then Sappho’s ideas. This understanding will be shown with three arguments and counter- arguments in order to demonstrate the dominance of Plato over Sappho. It will than be concluded with an overview of the main idea and a recap of the three arguments made for Plato.
The stages of love – lust, attraction and attachment all driven by hormones and chemicals, all on display in an ancient mating
Love can be described as the feeling between two people that causes them to care about one another more than anything else. Its that warm, butterfly like feeling inside ones stomach, the thought that always races back and leads to a smile. There are millions of movies, books, stories, plays, pictures, and songs that revolve around the idea of love, what it feels like to be in love, the reasons to love and why love can hurt. A true display of how instense love can be takes place in the classic play Romeo and Juliet. In William Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet he conveys that because love is overpowering it can take control over someone’s thoughts.
How to explain this phenomenon has been one of the most fundamental questions in philosophy, discussed by Greek thinkers, as well as contemporary scholars. Love is considered profoundly important but also distinctly difficult to define. This essay is going to address two alternative ways of approaching love in philosophy, and assess its value, as well as
It comes as no surprise when Lewis speaks of romantic love that he says that it is a good thing, but it is not the only things. There is more to love than feelings and it will never be able to satisfy the “need-love” that we all feel gnawing at the pit of our bellies. There is eros the exhilarating love that brings two people together and then there is also what Lewis calls venus, or sexual love. Although these two loves go hand in hand they are not the same. Lewis could attest that that having at the time The Four Loves was composed been married to his wife, Joy for two years.
Love is not based on emotion but on the will. While in other types of love such as Eros, the cause of love is desire, in agape love, love is the cause of desire. Furthermore, Fletcher made a comparison between erotic love and agape love. Erotic love is mere egoistic and selfish. It means that they only do a certain action to reach their own personal desire.
Few years ago I learned about Aristotle’s origin of love story about how we were created in halves and were to search for our “lost” half in order to be “completed”, “a whole”. (I heard it before but wasn’t sure where it was originally told from.) The reason why I brought up Aristotle was because behind this story he said that there was darkness. He said that people are wanting to be completed, and those who cannot find the right one would be in misery and those who did find “the one” eventually would want to make it last forever to be genuinely theirs, but this creates fear of losing, in other words, temporary love.
In our story The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is an Eros, and Juliet is a Mania. One reason why Romeo is an Eros lover is because he fell in love with Juliet “at first sight” (Shakespeare Act 1). Romeo had liked Rosaline before hand, but the instant he saw Juliet he fell in love. Love at first sight is a component of an Eros lover. Also Romeo things love is a very important part of life.
The text of this book begins with philosophical question such as what is love, can the world survive without it? Probably not! The book is challenging this axiom in stressing that the world is being cocooned into the thought that the Greek word “Eros” meaning “love” is a true love for the modern society. The author, in this respect, has methodically put together a popular thought for pondering without provoking thought.
