At one point in the play, Cyrano finds the confidence to say, “...All I must do is lay my heart beside this sheet of paper and copy what’s written on it” (Rostand 43). When Cyrano finds this small glimpse of courage, he is still in doubt with himself so he wrote his feelings because he is convinced his words and prettier than him. Anyone can see that even though Cyrano loves Roxane he will do everything to make her happy, even if it means putting his love on the lines. “Whatever words come to me, and even as they come, I will fling them into wild clusters and not wrap them in a careful bouquet. I love you!
Both of them fought for their love, rejection, and decisions about their love. In the end we can say that Shakespeare wanted us to know that love isn 't easy, and that people should love each other and not think about what other people may say about their decision towards love. Also he wanted to let us know that love is an obstacle and battleground once your finish they 're will
Like most plays, they each have a protagonist with a so-called ‘fatal flaw,’ a lapse in character that leads to conflict within the story. For Much Ado About Nothing, the protagonist Claudio is gullible, and believes the lie that his love is unfaithful to him. In King Lear, Lear is prideful, and takes his daughter’s refusal to pour praise onto him as a personal affront. Another similarity between the two shows would be the use of misconception to further the plot. Lear believes that his daughter does not care for him and so takes away her inheritance, while Claudio believes that his betrothed has been unfaithful and so shames her on their wedding day.
Silence in love bewrays more woe Than words, though ne 'er so witty : A beggar that is dumb, you know, May challenge double pity. Then wrong not, dearest to my heart, My true, though secret passion ; He smarteth most that hides his smart, And sues for no compassion. Sir Walter Raleigh was also known to be a lover of Queen Elizabeth I of England. Queen Elizabeth constantly criticized Sir Walter Raleigh for never showing her any love and affection so Raleigh wrote “The Silent Lover” in attempt to show the queen that he did indeed love her. His concept of the poem was to show the difference between true love and false love.
Maturity gives a person understanding, understanding that allows for prosperity, and with prosperity, survival. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, two people, born as enemies, defy their statuses to be together in love. Immaturity killed the two lovers, as immaturity had affected their ability to make plans and decisions. Juliet's immaturity affected her ability to make good plans in a negative way, as she had been rash when dealing with problems that arose. This can be seen in Act 4 of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, where after Friar Lawrence presented his plan to allow Juliet to avoid her arranged marriage, Juliet says, "Give me, give me!
Once her father hears these accusations, he commands to “let her die” as a result of the crimes she committed (IV.i.163). These incidents in the play illustrate Hero’s sacrifice of her angelic and pure character. Hero does little to convince others of her innocence. Moreover, clinging to the traditional views of women, men are unlikely to listen to what women have to say. Shakespeare portrays women 's ranking in relation to men by illustrating Hero’s great sacrifice, and how her closest mentors refuse to help support her.
Obligation can be used to describe if a relationship is true love or infatuation. True love can be described by explaining how a couple can go against obligations to be with each other. This can emphasize their commitment and dedication. Romeo and Juliet can be used as evidence to this because it says, “His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy. My only love sprung from my only hate.” (Shakespeare 30) Juliet is obligated to regard Romeo as her “only hate.” He is a “Montague” and that categorizes him as her “greatest enemy.” Nevertheless, Juliet still identifies him as her “only love.” This represents true love because she is willing to go against her obligations to love someone her family despises.
Hamlet 's true love for Ophelia is first displayed in act three when Hamlet blatantly says “I did love you” ( III.i.126). Hamlet tells Ophelia that he does love her but follows by saying he never truly loved her. This just shows the depth of Hamlet 's character in the sense that this new overwhelming sense of love confuses him. If we examine the scene in which this took place it is apparent that Hamlet only took back his profession of love because he knew his conversation with Ophelia was under watch. The concept of “love” is one that is very confusing in Shakespeare 's work.
It was unexpected. Not only was your heart broken, but you began to despise someone you thought you’d always love. Not everyone has a positive experience with love, sadly. William Shakespeare uses personification to help add to the fact that he was going mad. Browning uses imagery to paint you a picture on how beautiful love is.
In act four Hamlet ‘pretended’ that he didnt love Ophelia because her dad and claudius were watching him. If Hamlet really loved Ophelia then he would not of acted like a douche bag and made Ophelia feel like she meant nothing to him. If he did have to say those things he said to her so he can stay with her he didn 't even bother to send her a letter and tell her why he said the things he said, instead he never contacted her again he just let it be. Hamlet could have been a man and confessed his love for her in front of them and just fight for her. Another way Hamlet shows he does not love Ophelia is is the fact he feels no harm in his killing of Ophelia dad.
